    Nice car looks the same colour as mine yeah oil pickup can kill if its not in the history that its been done might be worth doing it for peace of mind.

    Looks spot on with the votex kit - identical to mine other than it being a saloon! As others have said, make sure you get the oil strainer seen to.

    Depends how high you rate your mechanical skills mate its a sump off job, would be perfect if you had access to a ramp but its doable on the ground jacked up and on stands
