My R4 is about to be shipped from South Africa to the UK. I wanted to use it at my place in Spain but the logistics are daunting, so i will replace it with a Spanish registered one, and sadly wave it goodbye :( I am very unlikely to find another like it, but hey ho.
As you will see from the attached pic, one of the only non original parts is what appears to be a VW golf expansion bottle. Does any one know where I can get the real thing? And would that VW bottle be likely to cause occasional air locks? As sometimes without warning the temp gauge shoots up, and then goes back don again. I have done all the usual bleeding procedures. Failing which, where can I obtain a head gasket. Thanks in advance
