Same as the Volvo. I loose power steering instantly but the brakes are fine for the first couple of applications.

I also make sure I dip the clutch, leave it in gear with the ignition on. Makes starting as easy as releasing the clutch again - even at low speeds.

Hi everyone, I'm back...
Sorry for the long long absence, I am fundementally lazy and I couldn't sign in through tapatalk on the mobile, it kept saying logins exceeded. I kept forgetting to log in online, until tonight. All is now well and I am back to darken your doorstep again.
Happy Haloween by the way.

I generally use my phone for my Web browsing habits. I use Tapatalk for my foruming so when it didn't work I just kind of forgot about it. I kept trying every week or so assuming it was a problem with the server and the Tapatalk update. I eventually got round to logging in to the Web forum and saw the same message. The I felt guilty for thinking it was the server when it was me all along.

But I'm back
