1. Don't buy British made cars (thank God Rover has gone and Fords are all made in Spain and Germany)

2. Any car that has had a new cylinder head is trouble waiting to happen. You should have sold the car straight away. The engine is never the same.

3. Please go to evening class and learn to write properly.
