    re: FAO Legoman - Ive got a loud d/v!!

    Actually it wasnt that bad, didnt need to cut down an allen key or nufin, just used the ball socket end on the allen key to reach the bottom bolt. It is a tight space and is fiddly tho, backs of ma hands are all scraped.

    I read up on all the previous posts on how to fit and recommendations on fitting etc before hand so i knew wot i was doin, those 'how to's' are well handy.

    Thanx man.

    Thats why it isn't very loud. I've had mine disabled so the bailey is doing all the dumping - hence loud sound. It's not lary loud - just powerful -
    Kinda says -"Don't make me embaress you!!!!" to other so called fast cars!
