Any comments or advice greatly apreciated.

Many Thanks

Si (great site by the way)
Bear in mind there are two phases, AFAIK phase 2 updated version was introduced in 99 - slightly different at the front. I'm also aware of problematic engines on phase 1, but i'm sure a mechanic can advise you better on this
