    Bradc why? It's just working this way... I mean sure it wouldn't hurt to get new oil and AYC fluid in there, but AYC bars will still light up in the corners and you will hear it working... :) it's normal.

    there are 3 oils in the diff though, hydraulic oil, atf and normal diff oil. imho when it starts to make noise it is a good time to change them all

    I'm with Brad - I think its just a good rule-of-thumb to change all your oils, filters, plugs and other frequent-service parts when you get a new (second-hand) car - never know WHAT the last clown was doing with it *shrugs*

    Great to hear you're driving it, Fred!! Fantastic news, enjoy playing with it over the weekend :D

    My car made the same sound when I first got it, changing the diff oil and ayc clutch fluid got rid of the noise. I just left the ayc hydrolic fluid because it looked fine.

    Your car looks good Fred, you are right about the engine cover, I would take it off until you find another one.

    How was the drive over the mountains ?

    very good mate, even in the wet, was a bit more fun though : ) ....yeah, can't fault the car apart from engine cover, and the damn front speakers crackle a bit with some volume, can anyone recommend some good ones, with a bit of bass, as i don't want to put subs in this one....
