Thanks DM!! Clooney all gussied up as well, service £159. I actually took him back as he was pinking in second gear and there was a rattle from the back - the mechanic kindly explained that diesel doesn't pink and he said it was the new oil making its way through the engine (plus the fact that I habitually change up into second too early) - he must be right because it had stopped doing it by the time I got home - and the knocking noise is the parcel shelf so he suggested I remove it. Which I have, so I shall take him out for a spin later to test his theory. (Clooney, not the mechanic.).
