    Today's lesson...
    If you fit a new thermostat, always pop it in some boiling water FIRST to make sure it opens properly. Just because something is new doesn't mean it works!!!

    Gutted mate, not a job I'd want to do again soon, done it last week. Surprised you had a bad genuine one.

    My only regret was forgetting to buy new G12 and had to use blue coolant from my brothers work, doesn't look right lol

    It works fine, its just not a great idea to mix them, and obviously it doesnt last as long.
