You're right, I did enquire, but I guess I asked a few too many questions (by e-mail) that went unanswered - I didn't want to have dealings without trust. I mean, if there isn't the inclination to reply when trying to make a sale - then there isn't likely to be any back-up (just in case) something goes wrong...

I haven't really made any advances in researching other companies for tuning - I decided to spend what I had put aside for the conversion, on an extended warranty instead.

(I must be getting old).


P.S. I didn't mean to come across as curt when I replied to your earlier posting about fuel economy - I agree, the VS is a fantastic car for MPG. My Scorpio (same size of car, same size of engine - but petrol, and more aerodynamic) gets between 15-20 MPG less than the VS, under every driving condition - and that doesn't have the excuses I'd make for the Landie...


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
