yeah true i was a bit shocked ... swipe round with a cloth would have been nice :D .... but i guess it means they havent power washed it which isnt good so i here :)

....oh and spotted there wasnt a clip for the bonnet prop thingy .... so had to use some cable tie to fix it :/ :D

first drive to work .... much better as a whole - didnt have to avoid any bad roads :D ..... clutch and gearbox smoother ... engine sounds a bit rougher, but easy to use in town ... unless in sport mode .... then tis smooth as turbo nutter silk! :D

That is strange, surely the wheel size doesn't make it that different.

Yeah they do differ Dan , my k was a bag of bones before I px it , courtesy car (same spec and roughly similar miles) was as smooth as silk . Vauxhalls opinion of mine - I had a particularly loud one ! Injectors were noisy but whole car was rattly.
Just good and bad ones around.
