For me it’s the softness of the paint work, get a bit of bird poo on it and it melts right through, all other things I’m happy with apart from a broken rear coil spring!

Non height adjustment on front passenger seat as standard. (Her indoors always says such a uncomfortable ride/car because of that)
The rest is personal minor irritants.

Not all 75s have soft paintowrk. My '99 Wedgwood paintwork is still superb! Had a 2002 British Racing Green Tourer though and it chipped incredibly easy (was that too hard or too soft?) to show the white primer underneath and yes, a peacock's "present" did cause some problems to the pearlescent finish.

i have to agree with you, my BRG saloon is covered in chips and scratches. it winds me up seeing all the blemishes but i then go on to think how shiny it looks when polished, and how little it has cost me :mrgreen:

main thing that annoys me is the very tempermantal cooling system. always seems to have a problem. wont be as much as a worry when the sensor gets installed...

A Hans gauge is essential on the petrol engined cars. . Filler cap is a known weak point, as is the big "L" shaped pipe under the front end. They are also prone to leaking around the thermo housing hiden in the "V" of the engine.. Nice cars though the 2.5 :) ..

i shouldnt need a hans gauge when i install my coolant level sensor if the bloke thats making the electrickery bit gets back to me :| (he's got a hectick work schedule atm so he says bare with him) as for the rest, it was all ok on the 5th, so hopefully it will get mme through the summer problem free :4:

good advice though on where to look james :thumbsup: but radiator should be checked aswell ;)

The only thing that pee's me off about my Car is the lack of a Wood / Leather Steering wheel and maybe how much of a pain it is to change the rear spark plugs.......I have big hands and its such a small space........lol
