    No creaks, no rattles, it drives like a Calais should. I doubt the motor has even seen the evil side of 4000rpm.

    The car got knocked back for rego check only because of number plate & parker lights are the aerpro leds... and apparently look blue.. these are the white ones from aerpro...

    No idea how he saw any form of blue coming from the leds but I replaced them anyway just to get passed then changed back when got home.

    I've been pulled over from Police for RBTs and not one has said anything about any lights looking blue, even when they have walked around and checked everything is fine.

    I pushed my car out of the garage, hooked up jumper leads, Started my truck. And pushed the car back into the garage and put it back onto the battery tender.

    Then took my LPG Landy for a drive, because it's heaps cheaper on gas (and actually fits the air compressor in the back for my mate to borrow anyway)
