OVH 112P was my old man's Tina, I was gutted when he sold it!
Replaced with MGN 78V which he subsiquently wrote off early one morning on black ice.
Replaced that with a Sierra A57 NUG.
Weird how we can remember the reg numbers of our childhood cars!
I get what you're saying bud & I totally agree projectors are the correct way for HIDs, I was just giving my opinion of the 'R' kits available & that I'd never had a problem & never been flashed for dazzling another driver as long as they are aimed correctly you can still get a very decent improvement
As stef says it will be that the spring will have rotated round 3" and the end of the coil won't be resting in the stopper.
No big deal, I'd bet you can jack up the car, take the wheel off, grab the spring and give it a good yank to twist it round the 3" to seat it properly without having to remove the strut or spring.
Blummin' Halfords monkeys!
Take it to a local garage to diagnose the problem, it should cost you nothing. Then you will know what's wrong and where you stand. We could be sat here all week guessing what the mystery goop is and it won't help you
Its difficult diagnosing a fault from a picture of a patch of fluid on the ground, if you can get it diagnosed we can probably help you fix it cheaper
