    s8aan update.....

    ok so the number plate isn't actually on my car yet... so its not really 's8aan' as yet...

    anyway, got the car back from woods on friday afternoon, the turbo has been replaced along with some oil breather pipes and they tested it and say all is ok. been using it over the weekend and all seems fine, however I am convinced ( probably due to madness or excess booze ) that there is still something small wrong - it 'judders' slightly when idling, nothing serious, but perhaps something is wrong? ideas? also my dad is convinced he can smell oil and it isn't fixed properly - however I can't - but then the car stunk of oil before hand due to the problems so perhaps its just residual? dunno!!!!!

    oh, and I've still not taken any pics... I will! honestly!

    big thanks to Woods Vauxhall in West Lothian ( cheers dempsey! ) and thanks for the most devious of daves for a hand with the ice.

    I get a bit of a judder aswell when idling, when i bring the car to a stop, as it finally comes to rest, just judders slightly before settling, but mines a diesel, anybody got any ideas what that could be? Sorry for hijacking your thread shaan, i hope you have more luck with the car this time.
