MG MGF Technical - Two questions
1) Red Line Water Wetter: likely to help prevent HGF?
2) Dinitrol or Waxoyl: which is better?
3) Will rustproofing the F invalidate the 6 year anti-corrosion warranty.
4) What kind of difference would fitting lowering knuckles make to the insurance loading?

|>>1) Red Line Water Wetter: likely to help prevent HGF?<<|
Ancedotal story in answer to this: Graeme Bishko put some 'Water Wetter' into his cooling system. About a month later, the head gasket on his '97 VVC failed. Co-incidence, but would suggest that Water Wetter is no miracle cure, and *may* in fact, react with chemicals in the coolant anti-freeze/ anti-corrosion mixture.
>>2) Dinitrol or Waxoyl: which is better?<<
No idea. May depend on the area that you are wanting to protect, and ease of application.
>>3) Will rustproofing the F invalidate the 6 year anti-corrosion warranty.<<
No, but do check with your supplying dealership first. At worst, it may affect your 6-year anti-perforation warranty - but this is unlikely to cause you any heart ache!!! LOL
>>4) What kind of difference would fitting lowering knuckles make to the insurance loading? <<
Depends on your insurer. Mine had no problem with them, so long as the car was not 'absurdly low'. It isn't, so they aren't. :o)

2. please define 'better'
3. ask the warranty provider for a definitive view
4. it varies by insurer, so ask them
|In response to question 2, Dinitrol,IMO.|
