At £1500/2000 a go, it’s a no-go for me after the insurance money has run out. However, if anyone has a success story I’d love to hear it, plus any advice you might be able to share. The headshaking problem has been ongoing for nearly a year (on and off) and I’m no nearer to finding what triggers it off.”
