Newbie

Hello there!

I have been a member of the forum for a while but coudnt remember introducing myself or not :-s

I have an `07 2.2 Type-S Diesel in Vivid Blue which has just developed the clutch slip problem at 26k (going into Honda Monday). There were a few little niggles with the car which i just thought was me being paranoid but after looking on this site realised that they do exsist and will get Honda to sort them!

This is my daily work horse and am truely a Ford RS man at heart (sucker for punishment ey!?!?!)

I do all work on my cars and build RS Turbo engines for friends and friends of freinds with excellent results!

I will be asking a few questions very soon!!

Kind Regards

Welcome!

A lot of your questions may already have been answered in the Wiki, if not - ask away.

So what's your favourite Ford RS?

Mine would be the Mk2 Escort RS2000 Custom, followed by the Mk3 Escort RS1600i

Love em! They are holding their value well but need lots of love and no chance of parking it anywhere with a hope of it being there when you get back!

Hope you get what you need from the dealer - certainly sounds like you know what you're talking about. And welcome!
