Hi and welcome to LEC you will find loads of help and info here, and everyone is pretty friendly, but not all pretty(!)

First tip: put your location in your profile: see user control panel tab at top when you are logged. You may find an LECer or two near you (eg Steve A)

Second tip: read the WikiLEC, Repairs and Upgrades (green tabs at top) sections. You will find lots of info, advice and how to's in these areas and may well save you having to wait for replies.

Third tip: most problems have at some time been raised on here. Use the search button (minimum 4 characters) to try to find the solution.

Fourth tip: all the work shop manuals and parts catalogue are to be found in the Manuals tab at the top, essential if you are a major DIYer, especially the parts manual which can often explain something the WSM doesn't.

BUT do not be afraid to ask, you will always get a response.

Enjoy your car and the driving: it's a great little car :burnout: :burnout:

EDITED to revise manuals location.

Southend here, just got my s2 back from m100hoods that did some works on what turned out to be a minor knock back in December. You can always come look at mine if that helps. I'm driving it around a bit at the moment while before I get a new winter runaround.
