      lol dont remind me. Its not that bad but I dont want to rush and damage interior- only reason I have not done it is due to time - Im at work.

      Im hoping the whole kit will fit albiet the facia will not be silver.

        Using the ad photos for now. Added some plans - nothing exciting, love how it looks as it is. Most of what I wanted to do with last car comes as standard with this.

          Guess what broke down already.

          My cover doesn't kick in until tomorrow when I was going to make this my main car on my policy. Because of that im 160 lighter, the only good thing is that it got fixed.

          The jubilee clip on the fuel filter had snapped.

          I was driving and suddenly started losing power, around 8pm. Got stuck on A19. Thanks to above jubilee clip which we worked out with recovery guy when I get it home, I was losing fuel from the filter and this was the cause.

          Safe to say I'm wounded, but I feel better than when sat by the road side for near enough 2 hours thinking I'd be ****ed over. The "service" this car has had doesn't fill me with confidence.

          Going to use my Haynes and check it all over, needs an oil change as its tappy (comes and goes).


          Need to sell my old car, been offered 500 and I think I will take it.

            Hopefully selling old car today and done a shift swap as I'm still quite ill and got insurance/car to sort. Just got old one ready for sale. And now doing a few LEDs in new car and hopefully get my stereo fitted.

            Will be taking my brand new filter out the old and swap them over.

                No Trax for me

                - Offside front tyre replaced as mine was damaged.
                - Service Done , oil wasn't done as part of last service and the filter was falling to bits.
                - Cleaned top end of throttle body.

                Is sounding a lot better, but emissions light came on for a bit but I think that's because I got some WD40 in the throttle body. Its gone now and seems to run fine.

                A corroded spring shows up as an advisory on pre-sale MOT which will need doing and I sometimes get a knock in the steering when I turn but not always, coolant tank breather pipe lets out steam a little and exhaust has a slight blow between the two sections. So few minor things to do service wise and a few weeks on the road before I'll be happy/confident its in tip top shape again.

                  - Stereo / Mic Fitted also with old Facia, Black/Silver is a bit weird but its in and its nice.
                  - MFD LED Changed to Blue
                  - Boot/Plate/Interior Light to White LED
                  - Plate surrounds from old car swapped over (More sturdy as new car just had rear plate stuck on).
                  -flat BOSCH wiper blades fitted
                  -replaced airbox /filter new Bosch filter.

                  Actually think air con doesn't work , don't need it but will look into it once rest is done.

                    Sometimes I don't think accelerating is as smooth as it should, but Its only had a mile or so put through it since cleaning throttle body and service.

                    - Concerned I may be losing gearbox oil as saw a bit of grease underneath there (So check Gear Box oil to do).
                    - Now I have my sense of smell back I can smell dog with the windows shut and it makes me bork - (Dog Smell to remove)
                    - Tracking (For the hell of it)
                    - Coolant breather replacement
                    - Corroded Spring replacement
                    - Investigate steering "knock"
                    - Investigate wheel squeak

                    Want some OEM pedal rubbers also.

                        Nice car shaggy like the fact you have no ABS too, as it's a pain in the ass with rear drums

                            Im working so that stops me from driving it to trax (was meant to be off this weekend but had to swap shifts due to illness).

                            Aye they are just minor things to sort now, the breakdown although a pain for fuel leak at least was a minor fail of a jubilee clip.

                            I thought I had ABS in the last car & this? But what makes you think it doesnt have ABS or not?

                            Bay is nice and clean yes, has a dodgy breather on coolant so losing some via steam but should be easy enough to fix, and a spring to sort. ** Edited previous list to contain these **

                              Where your coolant bottle is...., the green painted pipes (Brake pipes) go into that small brake chamber it would be something like this if ABS:
