    Default Picked up the monaro today...200 mile drive back

    Well, it wasn't without its moments!
    Petrol cap wouldn't release - forced but no damage thankfully
    Offside indicators stayed on constant because I had to force open the cap (or at least that's what I thought it was due to because it only started once I forced it)
    Heater is either bloody hot or too cold...doesn't appear to be a happy medium...

    Not the introduction I hoped for if being honest..

    Not sure if this thing is hiding near future issues. Things I've noted:
    When setting off occasionally there is a rumble from the rear (sort of judder if you like)
    Still getting that indicator issue when you deadlock the CL
    Can't get a happy medium with the heater (red hot or too cold)
    Tapping from front ns when turning steering

    Possibly a lemon but hoping not.

    Top strut mount bearings tapping when steer8ng at low speeds.

    Rumble at the rear could be a diff issue. Get it looked at because when they go they go in a big way.

    V8, not for everyone but 10/10 for your effort.
