I bought a Type R GT with 2,100 miles (approx) in June this year. 2.0l petrol, 65 plate, registered Jan 2016. Since then it's gone to the garage twice with gearbox issues. These issues have included: gear lever completely jamming between neutral & 5th, unable to select 5th, and...
A good test that fifth gear did to show you what damage car washes etc do to your car. Seeing as our paint work isn't the best,and why you should best avoid the dreaded squeegee thing well.
I think there is nothing more satisfying than cleaning your own car as well.:D
