MG MGF Technical - Two questions

Four 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)
