Dunno Norrs, No matter what colour, these Pluses are rare - between 70 and 80 in the UK. Some of which will be scrap by now I'm sure.

I'm very proud of it. The interior is stunning - black leather with cream alcantara centers, headlining etc. Carbon with blue weave trim.

Identical to the car in the Pistonheads write up:

Stuart - Just got this recently. Something had to replace the GTR and this is what I got for the money (incl Mike's old plate )

you'll no doubt see this on the ramps at AutoHaus soon

I'll look out for it, I'll be sending mine to MRC after this rebuild, but will still be using Dave for smaller things.

Thanks Tom, that gets my vote as best first post ever

I do intend to treat this a lot better than I have my S4. Won't be any roll cages in this one!

I've started spending money on the car. First service for me and I changed the gearbox oil too - 65k miles.
The entire front arms set has now been replaced too, as there was heavy wear on some bushes.

So that's my first 1.5K spent.

I also started tearing down a ZF5 auto box yesterday. There's a LOT of oil in these things (7 litres?) and most of my time was spent trying to joggle the box around on a pallet to get it all out.

Immediately found I need more tools, so I'm going to take up a retired mechanic friend's offer of his old tools so that I can get on with it. Center diff came out yesterday and the front diff will be today with luck.

The box was 'getting a bit clunky' is about all I know, so yes I'm really just doing this to see what's what.

Once I have this box fully rebuilt, I'll probably get it put in my own car just to to check that I know what I'm doing before I start doing boxes for other people.

Too nice a day to spend shut away in the garage but I'll get back on it soon, once I've got hold of a 17mm allan key and a longer 23mm socket - two things I needed yesterday.

Good work Doug, I'm sure the C5 box will keep you entertained enough!

I'd expect burnt plates in the 1st drum (1st-2nd) which seems to be the norm, and the 2nd drum plates should be OK. I'd have a look at the Valve Body if it was clunking as this is the bit of wizardry which controls the Hyd pressure and a clunking noise is normally this or a cracked filter causing a loss of pressure.
