Its not just bd performance that I've heard about engines failing. It's been from ford branches, other car garages and car meets. It must just be that 0.01% all seem to be near me or they are the unlucky ones and just by chance I'm the one that speaks to them or hears about it.
Honda now they have a reliable engine. I had my ep3 running 390bhp on a standard block and at the time I was always hitting the limiter and driving the car very hard. Never heard of any failures with that engine unless they were run low on oil but then that's poor maintenance and you deserve what you get as you need to be on top of all this.
All these cars are designed to be driven hard and pushed and if they go pop you can't blame it on the way it was driven. What's the point in buying them then. Yes once tuned your taking that risk and I'm fully aware of that.
They must be all around you mate, certainly not around here. And how many RSs are around you?
Are you not more concerned about your own car rather than others that you dont have? Youre pistons are about to melt any day arent they? Probably more of this ridiculous claim around than RSs having problems. Equally misrepresentative I agree, sure you do on that one!
