Didn't the Darwin dealer fix that up while stored?

He did, but I wasn't game to rely on his assurance that it would be there. It's very hard to find. No Mobil servo I've been to has it. Repco, Supa Cheap, speed shops, all no go. So getting an extra litre was welcome insurance.

I only requested the Darwin dealer supply a litre pack. No way would I let a new dealer touch the engine.

Thanks for rounding up the oil, app.  I put it to good use too. 

The trip was a dream run. Unless they had cameras hidden in the bushes somewhere.  :o

That reminds me - I nearly overtook a police car yesterday between Erldunda and Kulgera. Those who know this (130km/h limited) stretch know it is very tempting.  I'd just overtaken a few caravans when I noticed the car up ahead had a big aerial on the rear bumper. Throwing out all anchors, I shadowed it into to town at a respectable distance.  That could have been interesting. :eek:

It's a pleasure :thumbsup:

FWIW, when I went to the distributor, they told me someone from Ford had been asking about it.  But as you said, good to have an extra litre for insurance and for a long road trip, I wasn't taking any chances. :)

thanks but two things....

a. That's an auction, not a buy it now price.
b. that's the QC20i, which is for iOS....I need the QC20

Mark, I assume there was no issue with comfort after a long period of wearing, was there?

I love my car. Buy your own

No issues - they are more noticeable than iphone buds but I had then in for up to 8 hours at a stretch with no discomfort. They come with 3 sizes for the earpieces. The best thing is no ringing ears after a day on the road.

What's the difference? I was going to buy some myself and all this geeky stuff goes right over my head.
