    Hiya Folks,
    Quick update on the 360:
    Done the North Coast 500, been to Wales a couple of times, using it loads, thoroughly enjoying it!
    Jobs....
    Sill and rear bumper painted, but it’s a poor colour match so doing again this time with the real pro who is Jav at Rehman & Sons , booked in for Sept photos to follow.
    Engine MIL on dash so changed the Mass airflow sensors, genuine Ferrari ones, fixed issue and driving better in my subjective opinion.
    Drivers seat bolster side panels and centre ‘stripe’ on cushion (bit your bum sits on) replaced and both seats recoloured to match, wonderful job from Auto ReTrim in Halesowen, best £400 I’ve ever spent on a car.
    18,750 mile service completed with no issues at Migliore cars in Bromsgrove.
    Currently the coolant has escaped somewhere and got a tad hot so it’s going into Migliore tomorrow to be sorted, I’ll let you know how that goes!

    Cheers, Giles

    Giles,

    Was the coolant changed at the 18750 service as Iíd suggest that it may be air coming out of the system causing the level to drop. I usually after to add coolant after a run if itís been changed but it never got hot.
    Otherwise be very careful that the coolant hasnít Ďdisappearedí into your gearbox via a failed heat exchanger. It seems to be quite common and I wouldnít want to drive it with coolant in the trans oil.
    Can you access the filler plug? Iíd pull it out and see if there is any emulsion on the dipstick.

    Yep, coolant and gearbox oil was changed at the major service....
    I have in my history evidence of the coolant heat exchanger failing and mixing with the transmission oil.
    I’m just going to get it to the guys and let them sort it, I’m not over worried, it’s just inconvenient really.
    Cheers, Giles

    To this......
    Dave at Auto Retrim replaced the full side bolster, both outer section and inner section of the side bolster. He also replaced the centre stripe down the middle of the cushion.
    Then he recoloured both drivers and passengers seat to match. He did not use filler in the cracks as this is a bodge and would just fail later. The way forward is colour/dye or replace sections of the seat.
    Great job, very happy, £400 bargain in my eyes.

    That looks like a very good job, big difference

    I agree with your prognosis as well - there comes a point where filling and resurfacing isn't going to cut it. for that sort of a difference that's a good price I'd say.
