Nice! I also do mine once a year and then get a valet guy to wet wash everything inside and detail it (for £45). The resukt really does look like a brand new interior. And that's after nearly 20 years. Trouble is you don't want to use it once it's that clean!

UPDATE TIME:

Another year , another MOT

In the end we got a PASS! 

Wahoo... 

It first failed on a front NS ball joint.

This perplexed me , since i replaced both front arms including ball joints around 1 year ago.. as documented in this thread!!

To hear one has failed pissed me off.. but he said it could be i hit a kurb... not likely.. or that the lowered suspension has put extra strain on them ?

Now im wondering if i need to adjust the cars ride height or was it just a **** cheapo part.. 

i know the " buy cheap buy twice"  

Will have to see how low this car is.. as im no low rider.. and use the car as a commuter as you know.. 

hmmmm i know its all fixed and stuff just makes me wonder..

OEM manufactured stuff like Febi, Quinton Hazel, FAI, delphi, meyle etc.

NOT comline, veco or stuff sold by ECP, acp, parts in motion etc. Chinese cr@p. Soft steel, resin, not nylon friction surfaces, no MS2 grease...

I've just bought a pair of febi ones for 37 quid off ebay.

Yeah I had the left side fixed while at the Garage I use as I can’t have the car out of action anymore since I use it to commute on. 
let’s hope the right is fine for a bit

It's a quick weekend driveway job if you have the tools, 13mm socket to do the ball joints and the 17mm for take the wheels off.

 

No doubt my friend. If you read through my previous pages. I have already replaced the whole arms once haha! 
the ball joints on the end are a piece of piss. But I don’t have time to mess about right now.

The rubber bushes are the most time consuming job... I've also noticed that only branded bushes last.

I only fit the lemforder (to my own)

Yeah used Lemforder on my Beemer. So yeah next time I’ll use better parts but even still £40 and to get a year use is amazing in my book. These cars are mega cheap though
