    So what are signs when you experience the problem? Engine failed to start?

    So the weather has been very wet for a month or two now so I haven't washed the car in 2 1/2 months :/ I got a puncture the other day too, drove over a screw. While I was changing the wheels over I gave the inside barrels a clean. Used AMMO Plum wheel cleaner, works a treat. Is a lot of tar spots but I don't have any tar remover

    From the US, can only get it from the AMMO website. Takes around two weeks to get here. Id say its worth it but there is heaps of options on Waxit.com.au too. Thats where I get most of my stuff

    Your SS is pretty clean and simple, love black cars but don’t like owning them!!

    Just went through your thread and saw you went and saw Matt at custom LS, he’s a bloody legend, knows his LS’s.

    don't really believe that because mine doesn't idle properly on cold start. Idles like its got a cam for 30 seconds then idles normally. Im going out to Morpowa to get it retuned later this month
