    Likewise, glad to hear it's all going well - Where did you get the B6 shocks and at what price, I'd like a refresh and upgrade on my 850 suspension!

    I think the full shock set up was around 700
    Bilstein B6 front and back + Lesjofors all round lowering springs
    + top mounts etc.
    Car feels very planted I'm impressed

    Nah it will break when it feels like it, I'm not a believer in fate at all

    I've got to say though that the S70R seems pretty bomb proof after driving it to & around Croft circuit, then home again...tough cars

    I'm with you, just a coincidence if it breaks after you've praised it, it's my belief that the most reliable vehicles are the most driven and maintained to suit.
    Cars and bikes that are left just sulk and break.

    it's like that argument - will a tree make a noise falling in the woods if there is no-one around to hear it. The laws of physics don't care about us - a few tonnes of wood hitting the ground/other trees is going to make a whole lot of noise whether or not we are nearby....& a faulty component will cause a balls up whether or not we have crossed our fingers or said our prayers that day
