Did you ever get to the bottom of this?

Two seperate leaks were found at the bottom corners of the (bowed) intercooler. The rocker cover and intercooler were replaced, but then this.....
the vehicle was not running smoothly, like it had a puncture or the handbrake was partially on. It began to lose power and I pulled over.
One of the injectors had exploded out of the engine, oil everywhere over the engine bay and running out underneath. Whatever happened internally, the pressure was enough to push the oil dipstick up 4 inches.
It's now back with Hyundai and I'm waiting to hear back what they are proposing.
I love my i800 and have looked after it like no-one else I know. In fact I'm actually ridiculed by family and friends for doing so.
