Re: My 2008 Eleganza :D

The Grande had its MOT, a full service, a new sump and was waxoyled underneath today. The only advisories were exhaust pipe related, and there was a nail in 1 of the tires, which was repaired. I'm happy, and very relieved, lol!

Good to hear an update!

Did you Waxoyl it yourself?

Been meaning to do this to my Panda for over a year now :-(

Re: My 2008 Eleganza :D

Today marks 3 years since I got this beautiful car home, and I must admit, I'm still immensely impressed with it! So far, I've covered 15,500 miles in it, and I still find it a comfortable and enjoyable car to own and drive.

I've done around 20,000 in mines and I've only had it for about a year and a half!

Re: My 2008 Eleganza :D

@ Sweenstar,

maybe some forumers would have appreciated an update about your fan fuse location issue ...

Re: My 2008 Eleganza :D

On Tuesday, the Grande had new rear shock absorbers, and a new oil pressure switch. Fingers crossed, that's finally cured the minor oil leak it's had for a while.

I don't know if it's just the placebo effect at play, but it did feel different on the fast and twisty bits of road on the to and from a banger racemeet today. "Perfectly decent entry level hooliganism": I'd agree with that, lol! 😂
