    The new hack

    Very tidy. Nice pair! Congratulations
  2. At the end of the day it is your car champion and you are the one that has to be seen in it, drive it and pay for it. As long as you are happy, then who cares? It is not for me, I like them to be more understated - I need to remove the rear wing on mine completely. But more power to you.
  3. I just got a WH-1000MX3 and thought they were the gear.....until now. I love to to sit and listen to music but I had my right ear destroyed (now a constant ringing) by a machine gun being fired close to it. So don’t think I could appreciate anything better anyway.
  4. Weapon! If this is the car I think it is I was only reading the post related to it yesterday. If it is, great to see it on the road after all the trouble the gent had with it and the battle to get it running. I hope he is enjoying it!!

    Hot or Not?

    That is exactly what I had a laugh at. clubFG sticker adds at least 12rwkw.

    Hot or Not?

    Found this today on the web - I haven't seen anything like this before. Wasn't too sure if I like or not.

    FG misfire

    How did you get on Oz?
  8. Thanks Gents, Thanks Skid, I realised what you meant now. But in my panic, I wasn't too sure. If anyone needs a new dipstick just let me know - I have a few
  9. Thanks Puff, He replaced the filter. I provided it and checked it on the weekend - it was a Ryco SynTec which are black. To be honest I don't know what he did, but I do know he replaced the filter. Instead of just owning his error (saying he overfilled it) he convinced me he was right and maybe the dipstick was replaced with a different one when it was getting serviced by ford. The idea is it might have been serviced by an apprentice that wasn't paying attention etc. I believed him because I didn't think he had any reason to lie. When I went back about it he was almost having a giggle. He was lucky not to cop a flogging - he didn't get one only because I would have been in more trouble than it is worth (the wife views those sort of things pretty poorly). I replaced the oil and filter again on the weekend, for my own piece of mind mainly. It is all OK now. Goes to show if you want something done right.....
  10. Hi Gents, First up I wanted to say a big thank you for your help and advice. It is this sense of community that makes this such a great place to share a passion. Just an update. Long story short. The mechanic is lazy at best, incompetent and a liar at worst. In summary, he put in 6.8L and didn't check the dipstick. When I did and took it back to him, he didn't have the integrity to say he didn't check and started to point the finger at anything other than himself. I didn't have any reason not to believe him and like I said before seemed like a good guy. And I am far too trusting I guess. I dropped the oil and put in a new filter and it took a margin over 6 and a bit. It was overfilled by about 0.8L if I had to guess. I only drove it for 500kms and no oil light went on, there are no oil leaks, not blowing any smoke so I might be OK (lucky). I just should have done it myself to start with. But working full time, doing a course full time, renovations and a 2 year and a newborn - it just seemed like an easier option at the time. Lesson learnt.
  11. Thanks Rab - took it to a local mechanic, so I would hope so otherwise I will be looking for a new mechanic. I just don’t have time to do it myself. I went back into ford today and they are ordering a new one so hopefully that wil settle it. I will also find one in a wreckers over the weekend as I am in Sydney and will measure the length. I am in country NSW so there aren’t any locally.
