For cheap oils etc - opieoils.co.uk

I get discount being a member of the 106 rallye club. He usually has some darn good deals on the go, and is a cracking guy to deal with.

Could try emailing him to arrange SWFCO club discount?

As for coolant flush, I have never done it, I've just flushed the engine out and rad with a hose pipe.

loose power power cabes on the battery connector and, loom was not connected tight onto chassis so salvaged some of the proper fixing rings that screw the loom plug onto the chassis as mine were broke on the gti6 loom.
