Anyway,back to reality.
It would be nice to know exactly what the problem with the oil pressure was....if there was a problem that is.

well it's an example of low oil pressure not bothering an owner, so maybe it adds some balance to djmobi's thinking....maybe you should have thought that one out yourself. crazy

My car is always at 3 Bar.....but it makes no difference at all to this thread.
He is not thinking of buying your car with low oil pressure or my one with high oil pressure so again I say.....what difference does it make ?

The seller is probably perfectly genuine and all it needs is a new gauge...would just be nice to confirm that with a bit of a chat before I drive 2 hours to go and see the car.

Brackley is convenient for London and Birmingham and manages to be quiet with a half decent night life if you dont fancy travelling.....plus I live 30 seconds walk away from the Mercedes GP HQ.......cant get much better than that.

Plus I'm in close proximity to both Solo Italia and Motormech....all I need now is to finally buy a coop
