    thing about this engine is, you'll do the valve stem seals, and then you'll do the CCV stuff. and all will be well... for about five mins and you'll find oil leaks, and then the plastic timing guides will crack, the tensioner will go, the chain will jump a tooth... and it won't die as such, it'll just piss you off and not run quite right, until you relent and decide to get that fixed, and then you'll find the ++$$$ as it's valvetronic timing and all the gaskets have turned to hard plastic... and you'll wonder why you were so optimistic and should have bought the reliable safe-bet 6 cylinder equivalent when you had the chance. Sorry mate, these are epicly sh*t motors, pure and simple. Or you're blessed, and should buy lotto.

    Quick rant thread.

    absolutely. REPCO in Napier have usually had what I need, when I needed it. Yes they're pricey, in some respects. But they're open every time nobody else is, and that's worth something. Hopefully it works out for you.
  9. looks like a lot of car for the money. I've recently been looking at 2012 models thinking 'hey, circa $30k for circa 100kms, I could do that'... F15 more appealing.
