I completely agree. I just need to make sure I don’t incorrectly choose that ‘wrongun’!

I know that I did the same, just went to the dealers web site and saw they were saying 16in, sloppy on their behalf.

Not really a Facebook user and that group seems to be closed?
Is it a link to a particular car?

Don't worry it's only Tegiwa, they are in the dealer section.

Are you talking about me?

After the sad and untimely demise of my first S I rushed head first into the purchase of a shiny and seemingly good car that was cheap enough to make it attractive. An engine rebuild followed by a new engine and two clutch release bearings and not to mention just under £6k later), leads me to believe I am qualified enough to say that Fester is absolutely right here. And that really hurts to say that too

No but that's as good an example as any AND yours wasn't a lemon compared to a lot of what's for sale.
