Thanks for the add. Just bought a 7th gen t sport 190.
Replaced the coil packs as the originals were all cracked. Looks like the head gasket needs doing. With the expansion tank off and cranking car over the pressure forces the water out at a fair old rate. So I've ordered a new gasket set. Can I reuse the head bolts or do I need new ones. Tia

You can use the old ones but I would not recommend it. They are old bolts that have gone through many years of hot/cold expansion. New ones will guarantee that when you follow the torque sequence they will hold for many miles. Once you torque them to spec wait about an hour and re=torque them again because they do stretch.
