Funny you should say that....I was just thinking the opposite!

Where are the rest of the doors? Has somebody hidden them?

Well 9 days in to ownership and its been back in the dealers for the past 4.
On the test driver I noticed knocking from the front nearside suspension, which i was assured would be looked at but wasnt, so its now had new wishbone bushes replaced both sides, i'd also reported a clunk in the center of the car just behind the bulkhead whenever i started or came to a stop, this wasnt fixed so when i went to pick the car up on friday, i complained and left it there to be fixed.
Head technician, had a listen and mentioned it could be the pendulum mount, but im not sure what that is..

Had it back and went back in again yesterday, still has the same clunk, sounds like its an engine mount as when the start stop kicks in it clunks then too
