Hi all,
I’m new to the world of MPS and picked up my 6 over the weekend.
I went for black with grey alloys, nice car!
85k with vvt and chain done last year.

A few bits and bobs to sort over the coming months:
Drivers electric Seat only rises on 1 side so a new motor likely.
Clean up the engine bay
Re gas ac (working but pressure low)
New tyres (any advice on a decent set that won’t break the bank very welcome).
Replace 1 headlight unit

Ben

Hi Ben, welcome to the club! You may well find that the AC system is not working due to a leak due to a corroded/split pipe, usually one that attaches near the radiator (common issue).....may be worth investigating before refilling.

Thanks for the advice, I have already regarded the system and 3 days later it still blowing ice cold. Hopefully it holds the gas, if not I’ll look at the pipe work
