Do you keep the car outside over night? I am seeing a few (two) of the earlier cars suffering boost leaks through one of the OEM intercooler end tanks splitting away. I wonder if this could become a more common issue.

120,000...

Just turned 120,000 miles



Nothing new to report.

Rust near mirrors and on boot lid getting worse.



Tried 3 NHPCs to get it fixed under warranty, but as I hate being talked down to, lied to, ignored, incessantly having to chase people who never do what they should do, or said they have done something...but actually haven't, I've admitted defeat and will book it in with a local bodyshop soon.

Still 100% reliable.

Next service in about 4000 miles. I'll update the costs then.

Quality thread thanks for posting
Do you have any photos of the boot rust please
I managed to get the door mirror rust resprayed at about 5 years old without to much hassle from the dealer but had to take it back to the body shop twice as there standards were low

Hi Mate,

Just to check for over 100,000 miles, do you have to change oil seal for both engine and transmission ? I cant it on your list mentioned about changing that.

Just checked my boot for rust and no sign of it fortunately.
My car was the first UK car from Marshalls so coming up to 7 years old.
It has been used almost every day.
