    ooops, forgot to say, is there a national tyres near you? If not, get down to newton abbot as you'll get Oil, New filter and labour for £42 inc VAT, they use castrol edge too, the deal to be had here is the fact that in most places, the shelf price of just the oil alone is £50 - £60! Bargain!

    Kev, welcome to AS-N and good to see another Plymouth S3 on here. I've got a Superchips remap myself and love it, nice smooth and great power delivery. If you need it scanning with VAG-COM anytime give us a shout.

    Just picked her up from the garage, full service, inc gbox oil, powerflex dog leg mount bushes replaced (red) thermostat replaced, car feels 10x smoother, both through the revs and the notchy gear changes have gone ;)
