Good work. The egr messes everything up hence why I recommend you don't fit them back or get them remapped out.

Long time no see!

I forgot i made this thread, but the GDPR emails reminded me.

I have good and bad new about Rosa.

Shes still alive.. 198,761 miles later!

However not for much longer. Her diff has given up and now shuddering under all load and all speeds. I've ruled out all other avenues and after draining the oil and having a look, you can see the movement and hear it in the diff.

Its a shame really, as shes been a brilliant car, no electrical faults (apart from the bloody window regs), cheap as chips to fuel (400 miles to £35) and fun to drive, so nimble and torquey.

She will be laid to rest at my work, where students will spend a few years taking her apart and putting her back together.

Finally she'll be turned into baked bean cans and live on in our cupboards.

I did promise her, i'll get her to 200,000 miles. which will happen, even if i have to put her on the ramp in 5th with a brick on the accelerator.

I will report back about funeral arrangements.

Cheers.

I'm sure after this she deserves a box.

I may source one before the kids completely muller it, but the car is so old and worth nothing its not very wise to do. Don't suppose you know the box code? (curious now)
