    I was cool. I had to tell her three times she just hit me. Completely oblivious

    She said her handbrake was on upon which I responded "well, clearly it doesn't work"

    Im glad i didn't lose my cool. Nobody bumps a car on purpose. I get way more upset with drivers who "keep right".

    I charge a lot less than that.

    Pop by when you are in the area with the filters and oil and I will show you how to DIY. Easiest thing in the world to service a R5 treg.

    You have to upload the images as attachments first, or upload to an image sharing site.

    You can Whatsapp me your images and I'll put them up. Would love to see a kitted out Treg. PM me to whatsapp..

    No, you don't have to go through all that (if you are using a desktop browser). Simply open a reply and scroll down until you see "Attachments." Click on "Manage Attachments" and follow the procedures under it.

    Hopefully this sort outs the last knock on the suspension. I suppose 314'000 is a tall order for balljoints on a 2.5 tonne SUV.

    I like the bushes. Looks heavy duty.

    The arms are massive and heavy!

    Probably strip and fit Friday after work so I can have alignment done Saturday morning.

    Yes, they are impressive. Have my old one around in the garage and its weight surprises me every time I pick it up. Very very solid. They don't make vehicles like this anymore.

    Changing mine on one side made no difference (had to change as the ball-joint rubber was damaged by the dealers), the upper control arms made the most difference.
