Re: New toy :)

The cabin air issue isn't just heated air: turning the fan speed knob causes a distant clunking sound but no fans. MOT is due in about a month so will start compiling a little list for my guy to investigate when it goes in for that. There was one slight rattle that appeared at about 95 — sorry, I mi...
