Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Thank-you kind sir

Thought Id elaborate:

Had a new FD fitted last week under warranty, paint corrosion.
Dealer said I need to bring it back after 600miles to drop the oil, but Ive got to pay for that? Ok its only £50 or so, but I thought nah, Ill do it meself.

And funnily enough the FD had just started to weep oil from the black ring so just in time, yep, cant fault the warranty backup so far, got a new Drivers seat at the same time too as the heating element had packed up.
