Re: Hope These Haven't Fallen Off My Vel Satis?
Its only natural to see more steam when the air temps are lower, as more of the water vapour is condensating.
I don't think that these are exhaust brackets as its unlikely 2 would fall off (in your drive, whilst stationary), and the VS doesn't have a twin-exit system, so why would they be spaced apart?
As Pat says, the vibration from the steering on full lock is just the effort of the pump in turning & holding wide tyres (245-section, remember).
Lumpiness will more than likely be because the car's been parked up over a cold (and therefore damp) period of time, once the car is in normal use again, it'll settle back.
I wouldn't be looking too hard for problems - being a VS, the problems don't normally need much hunting down!
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
