    We've noticed a loud clunk when on full lock.
    Not a clunk like you've just hit the max on full lock, it clunks as the wheel rolls
    I thought top mounts, but it doesn't side like when my EP3 top mounts had gone...

    Damn cars. Didn't have these issues with the white one!

      Still some imperfections, but on the whole I'm happy.

      Also managed to do the engine cover...again, not perfect

        Spoiler looks muck better, nobody will likely be looking close enough for little issues. Not sure on engine cover being red though, is it black as stock?

          Yea, plain plastic. I like engines with colour.
          It's the same red as the car too C7P

              After.

              Not showroom, but not a showroom car.

              Next, remove the stupid vortex things

                Got rid of those awful vortex things earlier.

                Much prefer the look without them.

                May need to do something about the roof though. Thinking about wrapping it. The vortex thingy must have rubbed on it as it's marked the paint

                  Carbon wrap, or just black?

                    Not sure yet. I'm more swaying towards carbon wrap. It'll be easy enough though as it's a nice flat surface!
                    Where did you get your wrap from? I'm not entirely sure how much i should be paying, which style to get either (3D/4D/5D) so many choices!!!

                      I bought this one TRIXES 3D Carbon Fibre Vinyl Adhesive Wrap for Car - 1500 x 300 mm - Black - for Interior/Exterior - Textured 3D Effect: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike

                      But that's because it was available on Amazon Prime and I wanted a more matt effect, I'm sure there are better ones!

                      I didn't really look at the amount of 'D', after 3D it's all made up anyway

                        Looks
                        much better without. Tbh I think carbon wrapping is going to
                        spoil an otherwise nice car. I feel itís ok for small parts, but doing roof like it? Itís seems very dated mod like repairing the bonnet or something. I never get why people want to change colour of their roof

                          Yea, I'm kinda I'm 2 minds. Rey reckon the roof isn't too bad and that no-one will be looking that close anyway.

                          She's probably right

                            Could a machine polish not help? I can't imagine would be expensive and might restore the finish
