    That`s probably very good news considering mileage and today`s proliferation of potholes.Out of curiosity who supplied and fitted spring.

    Good news fellah. As a matter of interest, have you had your cambelt and water pump changed yet? I only ask because in the owner manual it states 10 years or 90k which judging by all of the articles I've read, appears ludicrous. I'm having mine done next Wednesday at only 31,000 miles. Standard concensus is that it should be done at 40k or 4 years, whichever comes sooner. Too many ugly stories of the waterpump failing and shredding the cambelt at around the 60k mark, with some failing in as little as 50k.

    I'll let all know how it all went next week.
