    You’re looking at around 2500 for a strip and repair I reckon.

    The subframe bolts should be torqued to 104Nm + 120 degrees, not tightened with an impact gun!

    oops sorry just seen your friend request. There should some big popup or flashing light when you get a message. I don't find this forum very easy to use, it takes ages to remember how to access my old posts to see if anyone has replied.

    Sonic is going well, although it loves a drink; 22mpg average, which didn't rise much above 26 on the motorway, cripes! Wishing it would snow again to justify the purchase. It always happens, when the weather fines up you feel like you are dragging a ton of metal around needlessly, then the slippy/rainy weather starts and you are glad of a bit of weight and security.

    Have topped up the polishing kit and clay bars, looking forward to giving it a full detail.

    Cheers
