WOW that is scary! How many have you seen go? and is there a trigger or sign? and can it be prevented?

Happy to bring it in for a 3rd opinion if you can squeeze it, you don't charge like Zagame do you? They hit me up pretty good for just a ppi

I bought this one because I know I or someone will need it...

Having run F1 shift race cars, I've seen more than my fair share of failures due to the accelerated wear rate.

A good inspection takes at least 2 hours to perform, then it needs writing up and all the photos collating... Easily 3 to 4 hours work all dine.... Expect to pay $500 to $900 at the dealer, roughly half for a specialist...

U sure you aren't dodger?

Pretty sure, I'd never buy a red one. No offence dodger. Just read his '09/'10 thread. That was an emotional roller coaster. Good to read. I love the F1 box and everything about the car except the stereo system, this ones a keeper happy the pay the upkeep. I've always loved these cars from afar, no longer.

Maybe I got a bad one, just got the system report and a run down of all the visual stuff from Zagame, they seem like good guys but this thing would be like looking at a datsun 180 to them so I understand. The second guy had the benefit of the first report. Do you know the autoart guy? I think I've been more thorough than most, the dealer put 2-3k in to fix all the little niggly things. Is driving in sports mode good bad or indifferent?

I would probably only buy red again, I love it, if you read the posts you'll know why I had a problem with it, not the right car for short daily trips in traffic.

Of course all the kiddies in here had a field day with that :rolleyes:

I got so many stares I tend to think it was the colour but maybe it was the exhaust (thanks ff)

I like the dark blue, not keen on black :?

Yeah I know Michael, he comes to me for his SD2 work.

Zag, and anyone has a duty and obligation to perform what is requested if then, regardless if their opinion.

I love 4200s, I love 3200s more, But the work done doesn.t vary.
