    HELP. AGAIN!

    Basically, they are giving me the car back. And are giving me the money to repair it myslef. Most of the damage is cosmetic, except for the key. So ideally i could do with a new lock set (new or used) to repair the car.

    Noise when steering at low speed

    Guys, picked up my car today and it seems sorted. Although i think they have got rid of the active steering as it feels heavy when steering at idle low speeds. Although i cant prove this. The noise has deffo gone though. They did it in a day?

    Noise when steering at low speed

    cheers mate. I think white is also the best. But id say blue is second. Yeh, its at the service depo by the blues ground. They took it in straight away, and replaced it the following day. not had a chance to pick it up yet though. Did they clean it? lol
