      Logos for sure, but STIs have gold brakes, so wouldn't be infringing too much. I would love to get some STI brakes but the cost isn't far off the cost difference between the two cars! Might as well just switch cars for it

      • Don't really like the silver on the dash, so working to change it, quite happy with how it looks so far!




        Not sure how I'm going to deal with the little holes by the controls in the main centre console though, will be hard to make it look neat

        • Really well done dude! the holes for the heating etc are pretty easy!
          Remove the knobs so you've just got the fascia, then use the heat gun with a microfibre to pus into the recesses.

            • I did, I think should be OK with a real sharp scalpel or something, one way to find out!

              • It's not perfect, as some slight wrinkles at top above stereo but can't see it in normal seat position so it'll do. Still a massive improvement on the old silver! Vents next but that'll be for another another time. Will probably get the JDM red hazard light button too.

                • Woke up to hear a car alarm going off this morning, looked out the window and my hazard lights weren't flashing so went back to ignoring it.
                  Neighbour knocked on my door, it was my car, but it stopped almost immediately, so I got dressed and went out and it wouldn't unlock. Turns out I'd left the interior lights on last night (I was fitting dash pieces at 10:30pm), and I guess when the battery got super low it triggered the alarm until it was totally dead.
                  Now on charge but man was it a ballache, car was nowhere near my flat and there are 50-60mph winds and sudden bursts of rain to contend with, pushing it was not fun!

                  • Done vents now too. Far from perfect, I tried to redo the main bit and if anything have made it worse. Not sure wrap will stretch as far as I need for the indent, and I'm not accurate enough to cut out a perfect outline around it.
                    Out of wrap though so it'll have to do for now.

                        I'm not sure it stretches quite as far as I need, perhaps will try another brand at some point, might have a bit more give.

                        • Had another go as wasn't happy with stereo surround, used a different wrap also. Came out much better I think

                            • Been heavily considering selling up the past few weeks, I drove the car to France and it was faultless, but the volume made me feel physically sick by the end of the journey (3 hours at about 80mph) and the fuel consumption was less than great.

                              Wrote up advert to sell, then went to drive it about 15 mins later and the ABS light came on, so will have to keep until I can find the cause of that!

                              Spent a bit of time demisting the headlights with a Meguiars headlight restoration kit I picked up in Halfords (not the one you need to use a drill for), came out quite well!

                              • Spent the day giving the car a proper clean, forgot how much effort is involved with claying, polishing and waxing! Looks so nice clean. A bird shat on my hand as I was polishing, so I guess kinda lucky that I protected the paint with my body?

                                Still unsure if will be keeping, it's screaming for some new wheels though
