I'm trying the front lip to see how I like it, and what difference it makes to floatyness at speed. It coped with a 530 mile 3 day trip to London and Warwick nicely. The rest of the trimmings will be added in due course I think.

I personally like the gunmetal idea myself, always looks good with Tropicana.

And good to see you again mate, hope you didn't receive a grilling for being late back to work.

Was really good to see you too! Will have to get a few more meets going off the cuff whilst the weather is holding up.

Was okay in the end I just stayed in the office a little longer at the end of the day.

Here's that picture from my Facebook of the two:


Probably gonna make that my SIG too.

This stuff is tricky - or am I just useless at applying it?

So a few days ago I bought myself some wind deflectors (I need to stop going on eBay quite so much).

Can recommend these, look nice and build quality is decent enough. They move around a bit in the door frame but not a lot after the window is done up once or twice - they seat fine. Does come with clips to hold them solid but I didn't feel too keen on putting those in just yet.

Love the look of wind deflectors. They are on my list to do. Do they just push into the frame?

They squeeze into the door frame - I might put the guide clips in too to keep them even more secure, but otherwise they are pretty solid.

How long did your wind deflectors take to arrive mate?
I've been waiting over a week for mine now.

I'm thinking about sticking mine in with black tiger seal (pu adhesive) so that the clips don't scratch the window tint film but i'll let you know how that goes if they ever arrive!

Did the exhaust paste cure the blow on the exhaust?

I think some adhesive is needed for mine too they have started to come loose in the cold weather. They took about a week to come, were later than they said by a couple of days.

Yeah the exhaust is totally cured now - I think it'll go again though, it'll never be quite right with the one I've got fitted. I thought my CV was going before but in actuality it was the exhaust touching the car around corners.

I'm convinced my timing is off or something, because when the temperature get a bit lower (like the beginning of this year) the car is absolutely gutless between 1.5/2k RPM - more so than in the summer.

Any ideas?

Picked up some Headlight protectors  :P



Chasing down a suspension rattle at the moment, think it might be tie-rod end, there's a clunk in the steering when stood still.

Look great. Where did you get them from?
