    They are fine if you want to keep them in a warm dry garage and polish them. If you want to actually use them they are all crap.

    So true. I've had all sorts of high marques but I have never considered addinga garage to the house, until I bought the L322 :rolleyes:

    Mates L322 fills with water if he takes it out in the rain, never mind wading:rolleyes:
    Spent hours tracking the source, so far without success. Funny, all the British cars I have ever owned leaked including my Transit:mad:

    I think I've mentioned on here a similar problem. Depending on the type/direction of rain , I kept getting a small gathering of water , at rear door sills. The doors didn't need re-aligning, all the drainage areas were clear, so couldn't work it out. Just before taking all door cards off , I decided to tinker in the drainage areas. Spent about 10 minutes poking with something long and flat. no gunk fouling it. However, since my tinkering the problem has gone away! The thought of adding a garage has not :laugh:

    You should consider getting a nondescript blue P38. The rain knows to stay on the outside. Just avoid pheasants. They have cost me the thick end of £200 so far this year in damaged parts.

    But as it is British Made, the old adage remains true. If there is no oil under it, there is no oil in it. The oil slick on my drive is getting so big I have had BP request drilling rights.

    Oops , read that twice and still saw 'just avoid peasants'. Thought to myself 'good grief man I Know THAT!'. Was a little confused when I realised it was pheasants I was to avoid. :hysterically_laughi

    Yours has aspirations of a indoor swimming pool I take it?

    Oh there is no point in avoiding peasants. Darwinism would make them get out of the way of the 2.5 ton block of steel. Although I imagine they'd do more damage than a pheasant.

    Lol.......I totally get you. But it does rain 355 days of the year in Britain. So how do you know all the other vehicles off this island don't actually leak unless you bring them here to test. (It hardly bloody rains anywhere else, so if there is problems you wouldn't know)

    Hahahaha, back on here again today to browse the many posts on water ingress. (Blue P38)

    Fortunately mine does have a distinct oil slick though, so I'm ok I think.
