Has your thermostat gone? Nice looking car looking forward to seeing this progress
Not sure yet,i have a spare one left and a M7 on order.Can't find any marks of a leaking thermostat...I do have that smell(hot water) coming in the car..I only changed out the standard for gp intercooler lately..

Cool car dude sounds like your heater matrix may be leaking though It's the only thing that is inside the car that's got hot water and will cause fogging of the window:sad:

What do you mean with the heater'matrix'?

I have a leak :w00t:,that's for sure now!

My observations:

-smell of coolant
-green colored puddle of water near the gaspedal(left hand drive),kinda sticky stuff
-i have no airco on,i do have the auto system
-the driver side of the window does not fog :glare:
-coolant level drop a bit
-i have a consistent water temp on scangauge

All these observations indicate its a coolant thingie,the only thing that's inside is the heater core,yes???

I need to open this can of worms a bit more,hope it stops raining this week that i can do some work,i hate that shitty weather ::getcoat::

Can this be A/C related?A/C is running on liquid gas or something?

Thanks in advance!

Tom.

Finally had some time 2 fix the leak and put some stuff on that's been in the garage for way 2 long.

Well the problem was the heater matrix indeed,when removing the matrix it showed some traces off coolant.

As you can see in the picture i could'nt cure it like it should be;to much hassle to get this right and i already got something in mind if this should go wrong.So i got the ghetto solution and put a tube on there.No heating for now,but it's summer anyways...:tongue_smilie:.Thanks anyway Brownpants,your matrix is in the garage and will be mounted later on or not if i decide to get rid of the heating and aircon.

Further on,i decided 2 put on the teflon coated charger with 15% pulley and dtbpv.
