Ever considered taking a road trip Dave?
I know where you're coming from as I live in the Alsace area in France and there really isn't any good Evo specialists around here, so, when I used to drive my cars anyway
, once a year I used to drive them back to the UK and get them worked on over there, specifically, to Bob at Hayes Dynotech who are in Kent, so pretty close to the channel crossings.
Was a great trip as I'd get all my jobs done at once, and then usually head over to the Ring or Spa on the way back home.
See you have an 8, is it a UK car or an official European LHD one..?
