John27 - hope youve ripped out the drain plugs on the new Tig then!

No, but something I will be looking into - thanks for the reminder. Of course, the drain plugs only help stopping the pipes getting blocked, it makes no difference if the pipes are restricted through poor installation to start with.

John27 -- Totally - 2 from 2 on kinky pipes would be seriously unlucky you should think!

Tammma - you are right. Having had one pipe replaced twice on my previous Tig because of this, I don't want to go there again with the current car. At least VW paid the £3k to repair my previous Tig to fix both leaks.
