Which one?

I looked at these and thought about fitting one. Just went with a mechanical isolator in the end as some of the reviews online were not favourable.

Thatís good to hear. On a D3?


Iíve fitted the isolator, and it fits as it should. Just as well as Iím not in the office til next Tuesday and Iíve fitted a new battery too.

Iím mainly using my MCS for hooning around and short journeys. The A8 gets wheeled out for work and longer jaunts.
