Because the slush box demands having the nads revved off it to make it move*

It also meant that they could charge a grand more for the 23,000 ones that they accidentally fitted slushboxes to...

*because the slush box requires a minimum of 3k rpm to make a two tone lump roll.

The addition of a towbar shows either an extremely ambitious, or patient owner.  ;D

A shame? A 20 year old rust bucket being broken for spares.  :-\

S what kills older cars. I had a warning go off in the Ovlov. Took an hour to diagnose and change a sensor, £20 off eBay.

Dealer would have wanted knock on £500. £120 diagnostics, £245 for the sensor, then some fitting.
