Re: Top Tips please.

Always buy the correct spark plugs and check they are correct before fitting

Only use the best fuel you can get, not regular unleaded !!!

Always warm it up before hard driving and let it cool down the last few miles home to save the turbo, never turn the engine off after a hard drive without a cooldown.

Regular oil changes and as above really
