    Had water leak Thursday night. Checked it today spilt hose going to matrix. Today replaced all main hoses with red samco ones. Ran coolant flush on road test and will flush out tomorrow and refill with nice new free antifreeze.

    I sat in mine this afternoon, made turbo noises and fluttering sounds as if I was driving the car, ramming through the gears.

    Then got out, put the dust sheet back on and when back in doors to do my ironing!

    Careful! You know you shouldn't drink and pretend drive - Call an imaginary Uber instead.

    Didn't get his name, too busy trying to fix mine! Yes, two R's doing what they are supposed to be doing, getting thrashed! I had forgotten
    how enjoyable the R is to drive. The brakes on mine meant I could gain three car lengths into each chicane. shame the engine misfire lt it down once out! Think I easily lost a lot of time following a Type R Honda for lap after lap, him pulling away out of every chicane...
    Oh well
    New ignition HT components will fix it, I think
    cheers

    All the best to gtiroc members for 2018

    Missfire rallying? Think I have found out the root cause to this and its not as expected. Believe it has been caused by too big plug gaps. Would like to hear from anybody with an opinion on this. Nominal 40 thou
