    He probably should just stick a Chevy V8 in it and enjoy driving it. :D

    He can do as he likes, but being expected to just sit back and wait indefinitely with no updates or actual firm prospect of getting his car is a joke.
    I know I’d be exploring all other options.
    And suggesting that considering any other supplier except the one that the workshop wants to deal with is a recipe for disaster is total BS.

    P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.

    P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
    S: DME volume set to more believable level.

    The GG proved otherwise
    .Everything is in hand.

    The 308 is getting the suspension it was going to get prior to Pless's modification.
