1 good thing i suppose was seeing how bad the air filter was it looked like a birds nest in there, totally black and full of crap and leaves.. replaced air filter so hope for better running and better mpg..
..just had a strange experience at the traffic lights, i was tapping the clutch peddle to my music and the pedal pressed down and felt normal... not stiff as it usually is, the clutch pedal operation was then really easy but after a couple of gear changes it went back to being stiff again... has the clutch cable got an adjuster on it that may be failing.???? cheers.
I would suggest you replace the cable first,as it is the cheapest option to start with.If there is no improvement,then suspect clutch.

Stiff clutches are fairly common and its usually the cable to blame. I've changed the cables on both bingos ive owned and it made a noticeable difference.
