Cool thanks for that!! How did you know your chain was about to go?? Was it really noisy or something? Does your car now 'go' better generally? That price is not bad really....


Had new chain fitted last week by Autobahn in Hexham Northeast england total cost was 997.00. The car runs a lot smoother and seems to be more economical (28-32M/G this weekend) but who cares about ecomomy my point is the timing was out and the chain was so weak it was on the point of snapping i had the job done just in time. There is no more annoying rattle at startup.

Giles you said you were needing this job doing, it is worth every penny. All parts replaced including sprockets.
