Not good mate.

Would get in the fone to Middlehurst first thing. Maybe an idea to speak to them first before venting anger on here

Dont see why....

He's every right to feel a bit aggrieved. He never made any referrence to shoddy work or anything like that. Chap's car has malfunctioned and its only right he feels a bit pissed.

Agreed mate, he's every right to be annoyed.

Just my opinion, venting anger on a forum I've always thought can get a negative response from the ( tuner, garage etc ).

I'm not angry at anyone in particular as middlehurst have been great with me just this whole situation, I've had the car 3 weeks, 2 spent in for repair, I've barely driven it :( I was planning a trip to snodonia with the other half and lil boy next weekend first road trip out in it and now I fear I can't drive out my town let alone a road trip :(

Middlehurst seem to have been proactive in attempting to resolve the problem. The seller has got away scot free and palmed off a heap of junk with apparently no reprocutions.

Dean I would reject the car back to whoever sold it - sounds like a dud if middlehurst arguably the best HPC can't sort it

You have obiously bought a lemmon, not fit for purpose take it back to the dealer and demand money back, Question do you know who owned the car before you bought it? whats the history of it? did you do research on it?

Before anything I would ring MH up and ask for their opinion. Also ask more about the history of the car, who knows someone from forum might have owned it.

From your description it could be signs of transmission failure...

have you even phoned the dealer Dean to ask him where he stands on this? I would have most definitely returned it by now, its hard to understand it having a warranty and being f****d.. If your hell bent on keeping it, then contact MH but me personally id be pissed off, ive had mine since the day before you and im thinking about selling it now hahahah youd probably be sick of it if you had it the whole 3 weeks ;)

Sitting at screen felling sorry for you yet really struggling to be sympathetic.

Your situation is identical to mine which I even posted the thread to which Flynn started last year and logged my issue from start to finish (resolved with a new gearbox).

I had the first issues, faults went, then only certain gears etc. My money is the box is damaged everything you do will make things worse. By end of November car is in full limp mode with only odd or even gears and you can't get the car over 2,800rpm or 28mph.

Thats my prediction I hope I'm wrong and I'll say no more anyway as everything previously mentioned was clearly a waste of time and effort.

Take it back to the seller and then buy Flynn's, at least you know it's got a new gearbox.

Another reason why I'd never go to a hpc! Svm/kaizer/jmimports/litchfield and any other r35 aftermarket specialist you can trust will look after your car properly!!

On my old 59 car I took it in for clicking wheels and a power steering hose replacement under warranty. The hose had a jubilee clip around the tiny hole and the car was still clicking leaving the round about at the top of the car park.

I hope you get it sorted ...
