Cheers chaps.

It feels different to the 3.6, some of which i suspect is down to the ivory leather. Makes the car feel
Brighter inside and a bit more luxurious, even though is is essentially the same car as I had before! There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜

Been in for a tittle and to have the brake hoses done, they had it for a couple of days, and checked it over, I had spotted that the idler pulley was worn and the bearing seemed to have a little play, it was swapped and a new belt fitted. They also looked at the small oil leak and checked to see if it was on the latest update for the battery management (which it was).

They have asked me to run it for 1000m to see if the leak is still present, it's only tiny from the scavenger pipe on the sump and they think it might be remnants from an oil change.

They also had Chartwell (body shop) over, hunters don't have a Land Rover approved body shop in house, which I tend to see as a good thing, chart wells deal with a lot of high end stuff (Bentley, ferarri, Aston etc) so their work tends to be top notch! They are starting the claim process to replace the tailgate under warranty. There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜

Sounds good nmj.. are you convinced by the oil symptom hypothesis offered by the garage?

It's possible, but I cleaned it already and the drip reappeared but I had just drained some oil out, so I'm sceptical. It's a cheap easy to replace part so it's not a big deal, could do it my self if it wasn't warrantied and it's losing hardly any oil.

They can deal with it when it goes in for the tailgate fix in a few weeks. There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜

:thumbsup:just noticed your ffrr sticker... I'm sure they must have an effect sometimes on raising levels of service when main dealers see them.

Possibly😜

I put 2 cars through Hunters, and they have always been pretty decent on the service front, the only thing they failed to sort was the leak my old transfer box, was down to me to find the leak, which I did. They then fixed it for me for a pretty reasonable labour rate.

I think it kind of annoys them a bit when I go in and say I want such and such fixed, good case in point was the idler I have just had done, how many normal punters would notice that? Not many I reckon, so they know that I know my way around my cars and won't take much in the way of flannel. I quite often turn up with a part for them to replace, or a box of oils for a service.

Generally been impressed by their service dept over the last 4 years of so that I have used them. There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜
