    why?

    the one taht was in it if looked after would have been perfectly fine..

    why you swapped it in the first place is the question u should be asking urself m8 no the forum..

    If u swapped it traight for the clio and now the previous owner want to do teh same agaion after spending at least 1k on it since then, sorry but i smell something dodgy and it aint the fact the dog has just farted

    yeah but i kind of got to know the boy and he was pretty sound tho dont think he would bump me and he is wanting the clio back as he got more points and cant get insured on the gsi as hes quite young and also stu i had the same problem with the somke issue that u did i could not get her to stop and thats why he changed the engine over
