Right so with all the floods of recent weeks/months im guessing we can add flood damage to the list of what to check for-as it has affected quite a few places and wouldnt think for a minute every last cars been wrote off-ok if its been swept upstream/street lol and smashed up fair enough or totally submerged but just flood damage that hasnt affected the electrics etc im guessing will be sorted out-FINDING FISH IN THE GLOVEBOX IS A BAD SIGN WALK AWAY .........whats your thoughts?

mmm water and engines are a bad thing, if it sucks any into the air intake bye bye engine, my bos had that happen two weeks ago to his Audi, had to have a new engine at the cost of 4k, but luckily his insurance covered him
