    Yeh, it was Wobbles. A pipe had split and I lost all my water, so the head gasket just blew.:hissy: Just very very unlucky to have happened then.

    It should have cost more like £450, but I know the guy and he's just fit it in around his other work because I don't need it with being on the sick and not able to drive, so he's hardly charged me any labour. I think I may owe him a few beers!
