The air ride I was looking at was £2000
From memory the compressor system fitted was approx £500, I may be wrong so don't quote me....... :D

Re: air suspension

Re: Coolant header tank emtyting itself

I had a small leak from mine but couldn't find it at first and then by chance I noticed a drip from a lower hose, after tightening all jubilee clips I never had the problem again..... :D :D :D

Re: Coolant Pressure..

OK, a cold pressure test. I've been messing with measuring dynamic pressure while running, so that's what distracted me. 1.5 psi over 5-10 minutes is measurable, but you've also introduced two new parts into the system, cap seal and gauge.
