Scoobyclinic come to pick up Type R. Strange

Scoobyclinic came to pick up the car today. But we could not push it up the drive as I think the brakes were rusted to the pads. I often got a click when first pulling away. So I started the car to ease it up the drive. It started first time and was clanging loudly. The pickup man said that sounds like a bag of nails and as he did the car stopped clanging and started running sweet as a nut. Blipped the throttle to get up the drive and revved to about 2000-2500 no knocking and the car sounded ok.
Strange aye.

You often here people say "it was running sweet as a nut" just before it lets go

No date set as yet. No price set yet as well.
SC will strip the engine tell me whats wrong then give me a price or I can have one of there packages which are all set prices.
I think I will end up with a package deal for the 2.5 no matter whats up with the engine.
