    10 dollar aluminum part...WHERE?!!!!!

    Out of 4 no leaks so far but we dont have any of those cars any more. They are local and with friends so I am sure we would have heard of it.

    I cant stand all the plastic crap in thes cars. I just purchased that cover under my car from the dealer for 44.00, will put it on this weekend.

    We did find one of the aluminum manifolds slightly warpped and I sent it back to BAV auto, the replacement sat flat on a flat serface, and torqued perfectly. I torqued according to bolt size instead of the spec in the Bentley.

    And you are right and for the same reason I have not bought a Zionsville radiator. If it lasts 60K miles and cost 120.00 it's far less than the aluminum radiator for sure. But did I mention I HATE all the plastic crap in thes cars. If I kee the car I can probably see a Zionsville in there eventually. Problem is I dont even drive the car 4,000 miles per year now so it will tak a looooooooong time to put 60 k on this radiator. Of course it is plastic just sitting is probably enough to make it fail.
