Yes, you're right - I look after my NGK's :) I don't, however, look after my timing chain or auto box, both of which now have a noise and both of which are well beyond my wallet or skills to fix. The timing chain (actually more the balance chain) has a nice rattle now (at 135k miles) and the auto gearbox has a bearing-like sound when drive is engaged, whether stationary or moving. I guess it doesn't like towing a Gaggia but I can't do anything about that at this time. Glad to hear you are enjoying Ms Silvia :) I'm off to practice some latte art, what with all the recent posts in alt-c. -- Regards, Danny (a purely hobby site) (UK advert for my mobile espresso service) swap Z for above characters in email address to reply
