As some of you know I stripped my car to do the cam covers, but decided to powder coat the cam covers and inlets, also removed my fuel rail, and put the injectors in for flow testing and cleaning, some of mine needed cleaning 4 or 5 times, now the flow is perfect across all...

My budget is about £16k.
Which of the...

A simple VOSA check would reveal the truth, you need to get either the last MOT number or V5 Document...
I'm having this annoying problem with my comand system. The whole system seems to "reset" itself (by reset, I don't mean a full reboot with the logo etc). There's a sort of a static sound, the display blanks (still on the blue screen), loses the mobile signal, loses navigation and...
