I paid 528 6 months ago to have my head gasket sorted. Expensive job. Also had all new valve stem seals aswell.

Currently there are 4 members of staff in the "performance" room. One spends all day on the phone to his ex-wife, another is about 45 and knows fuck all about modified cars, but is really good on speed trap detectors and GPS navigation (we sell about 2 every year) Theres only Me and Steve T actully intrested in modified cars.

rant over
