I'd always take reviews with a pinch of salt. Unless you get amazing service or dire its not like you will post anything to say they were ok. Perhaps look at the Financial ombudsman site as they sometimes post complaint league tables etc
Didnt realise that about the wiper arms.
A brand new Akra will be awesome! Always wanted one for the weight saving and sound. Out of interest how much are Litchfield getting it in for? Have you seen their oil coolers?
Shame that after all that work its showing low oil pressure. Suppose do you spend £50 on an external gauge to check or just go straight in with the now oil pump. If it were me I'd go for the fresh oil pump.
