    Hi folks.

    Picked up a nice 45k 180CDI for the missus; the old A with 100K on was tired, and she lost an argument with a concrete bollard which hadn't done it's cosmetics many favours. So...

    Anyway, found this nice 06 in very tidy nick well under book once the deal was done. It had an advisory on the last ticket of "fine oil mist on NSR shock". Now, it has a rattle coming from that corner. Sounds exactly like the tool kit rattling or similar; it's not, I checked. All seems tight and fine underneath, so obvious signs of wear/damage. Aside from that, drives like new.

    I can't get her into my indep till next week. In the meantime, and punts as to what I should expect the problem to be?

    I simply can't even begin to countenance the fact that this hadn't even begun to occur to me....

    Well, turned out OSN shock was buggerd. Could have been worse. Not great for 45k though. Replaced as a pair, just over 200 squids.
