    My first issues will be my aircon and my passengers window. What a bad combination to have issues with! I have to say though, although I bought it cheap with issues, I still prefer it to so many new cars I drive from rental companies when away with work

    OK, so I am officially the single slackest member. Hi, I'm alive, and want to contribute with this thread still. So, I have a new issue, I scraped my car in an ultra tight car park. Yes, my fault, yes annoyed. Bugger!!

    But, I recently developed an issue with my speedometer. It would fluctuate between working, not working at all, not working under 40, not working other than 60 to 80. Also cars rev range was rubbish, very jumpy, especially when the speedo was flickering, and my PAS was acting up. So I pulled out my speed control unit from under/behind my glovebox and resoldered all the points on it. It turned out this fixed it up, obviously a very subtle dry joint. Car is now lovely.

    I replaced my speed control unit. Maybe I'll do the same with my old one and keep it as a spare. I hadn't thought about pulling it apart

    They're not too hard to open, but not fun. Mine (unsure if theyre all done this way, I assume so) had been "melted" shut at the casing joints so I carefully broke this away.
