    Two breakdowns and being bogged for 2hrs in the sand with the tide coming in coupled with 4000kms. Marrige wouldn't have lasted. Might not have even happened.

    Intercooler piping blew off both times. Inlet pipe/silicone hose worked its way loose due to excess oil. Once home I roughed up the flange with file and gave the silicone hose a clean. Has been holding since.

    Got bogged on the soft sand in Robe. Water was lapping at the rear wheel. Was in panic mode.

    I have put one on recently. I think there was residual oil made worse when i removed the intercooler previously to fit my DP Chip.
