    Car BackTomorrow

    Get the Zaffy back tomorrow, the head gasket was starting to go, my dealer found traces of hydro carbons in the water system, so it's had a new head gasket fitted.

    While it was in bits, I took the opportunity to have an Astra VXR head gasket and Astra VXR turbo fitted.

    So all being well, it should be back in my greasy mits tomorrow!!

    My Zaffy is 3 years old next March so just in warranty. I of course had to pay for the new Turbo and VXR head gasket upgrade.
