At last after 4months 4 days I collected my W8 from my dealer. So quiet,smooth and just fantastic to have the car back.a gleaming new engine in the power bay.
It was going so well, being carefully driven for at least the next 1000/1500 kilometres
Then b****r me mis firing!
Yes, yet another fuel injector mis behaving. Back in the garage being fixed.


Should be back with me on Monday.....I hope!.

Back home! Driving as smooth as silk. It's been a long haul, but so worth it in the end. Thank goodness for extended warranty. Final bill was £15,000 this after a hefty discount for parts and labour, new engine was £10k.

Now going to get an aftermarket DAB radio fitted. Having had a courtesy car with DAB I realise how out of date my audio system is now . Wonder how much to get the defunct TV up and running again?
