    Re: What have you had to replace?

    tank after tank after tank of petrol lol ( no joke in these expensive times )...

    a few oil top-ups...

    set of spark plugs - I had 'an intermittent misfire' reg'd in the fault codes. Every now and then the ECL flashing at mid to high revs for a few seconds. This was, no doubt, the very reason the last owner had sold it on?!? My heart sank when I saw the flash, that horrible gut-twisting realisation that your less than 100 mile owned car could be a right old nail. Thankfully, the plugs totally sorted it and I also got to see a lovely brown coating on the old ones to show normal conditions.

    and a spare DI cassette. A trip to a local scrap yard and 15 must be the deal of the century?
    She managed to persuade me to give up the motorcycle; the HOT Aero is just as much fun - but uses a lot more petrol!

    ...a repair to the SID too. That was money well spent and the service was excellent from one of the outfits on fleabay.

    Re: What have you had to replace?

    So far in 9 years I have had :-
    2 turbo's (80,000 miles and now at 175,500)
    3 bonnet badges
    1 battery
    Auxiliary belt and rollers (under warranty)
    1 SID unit
    several rear brake springs
    several sets of tyres
    1 set of front disc's
    several sets of brake pads
    Windscreen wipers both front and rear
    1 windscreen
    N/S front window roller's
    2 key fob batteries

    Not bad for 100,000 miles motoring!

    Re: What have you had to replace?

    The major problem with the poll is that it only lets you select one item that has been replaced.
    Some hope!

    DI cassette x2
    catalyst as a result of the failing DI
    Air con compressor
    Fuel pump
    Turbo - blew spectacularly on the M5. Just like the old days of F1 lol.

    Other than that lot not much............

    this might have been said already, but isn't it pointless to not have a multi-option poll here? ^^
