So at the moment I'm running a hyundai I40 tourer as my company car. The cars 15 months old and so far I've clocked 36,000 miles. Turns out today it's needs a new engine.
I noticed the past few weeks when I've checked the car over the coolant was low. I topped it up and checked the oil levels and under the filler, all ok.
Booked the car in early for its 40,000 mile service to get them to check it out whilst it's in and turns out the blocks porous!!
Good news is its all under the 5year warrenty.
Bad news it's going to take 5 weeks so it looks like a hire car for me for the near future.

Hi all I thought I would start a new post because if I attached it to the other mount post some may have already read that and miss my problem.
As a lot of other people I read the post about the engine mount inserts and thought if it smooths out the gear change then I would go for it, there was only one negative post from Mark who said the vibrations were horrendous. Mine came today and I have the same problem they were very hard to fit as they worked out to be about 4mm wider and it was really hard to get them in the U shape mount any way I did it and they were all sorted until I started it and went for a drive. The tick over vibration is horrendous it feels like you've got one of those fat vibration belts on every panel moves, shakes and squeaks the faster the revs the better it gets but even at speed with higher revs its still not right. I am sure its got to be doing some damage I only went about 5 miles just in case. I have to say it did feel a little sharper and the gears a little better but tomorrow I will be spending another few hours removing them.
So may be they don't seem to fit all cars, I dont know why this would be.

Well after 2.5 years of very happy VX Turbo ownership its finally moving on and being replaced.
Picking up a lovely S2 Exige in a few weeks and rather excited
08 Exige S with Lotus 260 Upgrade + LSD
Touring / Sports / Performance Packs
Its a set of the split 7 spoke forged wheels away from my ideal spec so will be looking out for a set of those.
Have met a few of you guys at the Hassop cafe run in the VX and looking forward to coming out for a play in the future.
