Annoying thing is garage is only 1/2 mile away, but it obviously is no longer drivable

The face you made cracked me up at that BP garage - it was making the most horrendus noise ever, and you just did a 'oh dear' face and then smiled lol.

I'd of been in tears if my car had been making a noise like that

People read they have chocolate pistons, cans of worms get spilt and the rumours get silly. Piston 3 is known to be a weak point. How many standard engines do you hear of going pop? Andys car is an import, did you run it on octane booster Andy or have it remapped?

It's run on Vpower with NF octane booster Marc. Engine as far as I know is standard bar the exhaust which was already on it. I haven't tinkered with the engine at all since i've had it

Marc's right, these things get blown way out of proportion. I bet there's more people on here with broken corsas than people on scoobynet with broken scoobs.
