          I hope it is all well but is yours needing a tighten or new studs on exhaust manifold.

          Check out the recall thread on here to be sure

          Otherwise whip it in to dealers to check it out ASAP

              Wife has just arrived [0715 !!] at the Garage in my car for the STUDS. Manager was there waiting.
              Left a note to say it was pristeen after 11 months old and please take care.

              [It was tightened after 1 month and been okay since.]

              BUT knocked the Rad and bent and twisted an dented the heat shield trying to get it back on. I had to remove and redo!!

                Update! it stopped doing the noise yesterday, so its either the zx1 has got round the engine now or a good old spritied drive is what it needed either way the noise has gone. fingers crossed! Also i checked for recalls few days ago and its clear. thanks guys
