I've had mine now for a year. Last month I replaced the fuel lines along the bottom of the body, replaced all the brake pads and the drivers side rear caliper as it was seized solid. Did an oil and filter change changed the air filter and topped up the gearbox oil. Took it for an MOT test on Wednesday and it sailed through. I'm rather happy with the car overall and have had no major problems with it so far. Looking forward to a relatively trouble free 2nd year with it. I do have a question, though. Does my 1998 1.8 have an EGR system fitted and if so where would I find it? thanks.
