Then disaster:

So Technosport rang back, good news is they know what the problem is, bad news is that its going to be a painful fix.

So, excuse my lack of technical terms but it was explained and I need the following:
New propshaft
Rear outer driveshaft
Rocker cover gasket
Rear discs have a lip (I can live with that for now)
Play in rear lower bushes
Leaking header - Someone welded it and covered it in exhaust gasses to stop a leak
New exhaust gaskets
AC belt is cracked
Leak from the timing chain? New timing chain tensioner (can't remember)

So will be tackling chassis first I think and potentially exhaust, just waiting for it to be priced up:
New propshaft
New rear outer driveshaft
Rear bushes

£2066 later I have her back. Definitely a painful bill, but hopefully keeping this one for a while so should even out over the ownership. Will need to put things on hold mods wise for a while to recover lol

Congrats on the M3 looks nice mate.

My jaw dropped with that 2k bill though. I know George is expensive but didn't think that much! :o
