    Hi Dave


    I'm just e-mailing to ask whether you have sent the ignition coils out yet? I'm obviously quite keen to get them as quickly as possible because the car is becoming almost undriveable and coil pack 2 is also starting to play up under the extra strain.


    Can you please confirm whther they have been sent out yet and as a rough eta so I can plan ahead a bit. I've also sent a copy of this message to you by e-mail.

    Many thanks.


    Regards


    James

    Hi Dave,
    I quite like the look of carpy110's V70R which is in the cars advertised section.

    He makes mention of the ABS and TRACS light being on, I know you know a lot about this area, what are the common faults and are we talking big bucks?

    Regards and best for the New Year.
