Thanks :) I'll have a look! Any ideas on their prices? I'm just going for manual, manual is too much :shifty:

you'll be looking around the 2200 i think but its just the same price having v2 as manual. Manual is cheaper to buy but costs more to install and vice versa for v2

Little updates, after being sold the wrong washer fluid bottle, I got the right one! :thumbup:

And the new expansion tank

Gave the callipers a lick of paint too!

Looks a lot better IMO

On a bad Note: I got myself a vag com to check why the eml came on, I got 3 codes

16394

P0010

-A- Camshaft Pos. Actuator Circ. Bank 1 Malfunction

17936

P1528

Intake Camshaft Contr.Circ.,Bank1 Open

16514

P0130

O2 Sensor Circ.,Bank1-Sensor1 Malfunction

Slightly worrying as I have no clue what it means, but it can't be good!

Flocked topmount covers.

Such a lovely example to begin with and you've only improved it! If only this was closer when it was up for sale, I would have bought this myself. :D

This is my old car!!

Hi Ollie, I wondered if you would be on here. I'm glad you are taking care of the car, great to see. I am gutted to have sold it as it is such a good package, good on fuel, fun to drive and quick enough when needed. I'm glad other then my tyre choice ( I really never found them that bad except in the wet but I never drive hard then anyway) you haven't been disapproving of what I've done. It's a brilliant little car.

I'm not really feeling it with the new car. Too much power for my average drive and obviously worse on fuel.

Silver- I was the guy you your bought your spare wheel from.

T3lliot- thanks for your kind words, means a lot after all the work/ money I put in to this car.

Anyway, here's a couple of pics of my new car. Very nice but not loving it like I did the lupo. Maybe it will grow on me ? But I'm not gonna modify it at all either as it ruins the resale value so a little bored!

Anyway, sorry to hijack your thread. Hope you carry on with the good work.

All the best with it mate.

Craig

Car is looking lovely Craig, it's nice to see it in the light!

Very happy with the car, just needs tidying up, wheels and body work mainly.

Due to changing the tyre size, the arch gap is horrendous :paperbag: so it will be going on coilovers in the near future.

Flew throught the mot with 2 advisorys- antiroll bar bushes and o/s headlight lens.

Do keep an eye out for me at shows in you do attend some; always up for a chat- and you can have a butchers at what I've done!

:thumbup:

Thanks man, feels like a bit of a show piece at the moment, looks good but no fun! Hopefully next summer might be better.

Yeah that's the reason I ran with the 185's, thought about the 165's but didn't wanna run that low as it looks more modified then the look I was after. However, it does look bad ass. I wanted to keep it standard looking and not go too low, but I'm old!!!

I will keep an eye out for you mate if Im at any shows ( not many now ). Be good to hook up for a beer and a chat.

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread.

All the best bud.

Craig.

I just thought I'd sort the rubbing by down sizing and eventually getting the arches rolled.

Sweet! :)

That is a very very expensive garage you use.

I know, a bit of a joke to be honest. But I know him personally so I know things are done properly.

Funnily enough that's with discount too :paperbag:

Bloody hell. You seem pretty hands on though why not get a tool kit and do servicing yourself? If a mate charged me that much £100 for a service but still £40 for oil? That way you can do it properly.

Good work though.

Peace of mind really, I just wanted it properly checked over and serviced.

It may be a lot, but money well spent in my eyes as I know everything is spot on at the moment.

& thanks mate :)
