if by minimum you mean three stamps in the book, yes :rofl2:

its only covered around 10k in last four years (only 3k in last year) and I have reciept for service last year, new battery and 4 new tyres so i went with the logic that you wouldnt stick 4 new tyres on something if you hadnt looked after it (i wouldnt id just get some part worns from scrappy) clutch is ok, no vibration from dmf either, no smoke, pulls well through the gears and the missus wants me to swop it with her for her 206cc hairdressers car or find her one as she loves it

ive just remapped it to 138Bhp so fingers crossed the engine doesnt fall apart [-o<

If i can just go slightly off topic, is this the correct kit for sorting out rear suspension squeaking and creaking?

whole subframe replaced with one that came off a higher mileage car that hadnt been a tower and im actually appreciating what a great bit of engineering the C5 is, loving it to pieces!

Now looking for one for the missus as she wants mine :(
