Good luck sourcing an engine then mate and hope you can still get the respray

thanks. Not really an update, I'm still driving this poor thing stll hasnt died yet lol. Wish i can get an Afh engine but due to insurance (my mistake ) i cant till end of next year. I took out a 10 month policy with elephant and the 10 month bonus is not valid with most insurers as its not a one years no clams bonus. Soo I'm gona insure it again with elephant using my 10 month no clams bonus and make sure i insure it for 12 months this time.

This came today from the post man

Those fog lamps look proper nice. Can't wait to see then fitted

I would speak to elephant about rolling out out your policy starting a new policy on the same payment dates and then if you are eligible for your ncb in two months doing it that way it may be cheaper to cancel after you get the ncb and re-insure.

Worth a try although I know elephant to be strict on that already as I had a similar thing with them too

When my 8v did that, It turned out the cat had come loose and fallen over inside the housing, blocking up the exit to the pipe haha, got a massive drill and plenty of long tools and just smashed it out, made a massive difference!
