    Just drove it, don't feel like my car. Just asked mechanic if they need to bed in, sounds like a tank when start engine, blip throttle it goes and really quiet. Had a good 6 inch travel on old clutch on pedal, this bites with next to no travel when releasing clutch. Just done a few miles, pulls like a train, feels smooth. Just me to get used to new clutch I think.

    Yeah needs a good run. £750 on parts rest labour. It's done now, just hope that's it for a while.
