Both doors on the drivers side painted so its no longer 50 shades of blue :lol:

Previously


Better

Not a perfect job but perfectly acceptable for an 18 year old daily driven 200k car.

Just need to redo the complete rear quarter as I had to rush it and didn't paint the top section or the petrol flap and door shut properly.

Too many old sheds.

BMW update.

It's going to a BMW specialist on Thursday have the coolant tank checked, parking sensors fixed and get the remote working on one of the keys. On the following Monday it's going to my mate who looked after the Puma to have the arches repaired and hopefully get the bonnet sprayed as there's a few stonechips. I'll look forwarding to posting some before and after pics as his work is fantastic.

Then the alloys are getting refurbed as soon as it's back.

I just clipped a kerb at very low speed. I am monumentally p1ssed off :evil:

FFS Mik :(

Some nice kind lady scraped the ds3. Fairly minor bumper door wheel scrape but won't be pennies to put right. Amazingly left a note and told her insurance company who rang me earlier to offer to pay, give loan car etc.

Quite surprised at the honesty.

Declined loan car and told her id get it fixed through the lease company's approved people as cheaply as possible.

Not all people are wankers after all.

Bloody hell, that's a result Si :D

Replaced the cracked fog light on the Tiguan, VW said might need the bumper removing or wheel taken off to access the wheelarch liner. We could do it in an hour for you... Err parts like this should be designed for service and bulb replacement should be with minimal tools and part removal.

So took me 5 minutes in the end, the bezel finisher just un-clips and the fog lamp is held in by one screw and a couple of lugs. :roll:

Yes, but for peace of mind you really should only allow vw trained technicians to work on your vehicle, especially safety critical items like lights. An hours labour would be a small price to pay ;)

She's built like a steakhouse but she handles like a bistro.

:(

Also annoyed with myself for not buying this last night:

Merc 500 SEC

Mine really is just a K&N with a pretty heat shield - thank God it's already ordered :lol:

Confirmed, fresh from Japan:

Quite a nice set of components actually and well worth the money. Said no-one, ever.

The megane appears to be behaving itself. I think I will try and tinker with the winning formula.

I have bought a larger turbo and will be taking it to be remapped ( again ! ) and will break 300hp. Already over that in ibft so will have to be a bit careful with the torque.

TD0415T Rev(y?)

14t as standard. Mine is maxed out at 285bhp. Should be good for upto 325 , but I reckon we will just creep over 300.

Just got to watch the torque or the rods will bend.

Standard clutch? Very impressive if so.

It's cheaper to upgrade rods before they've found their way out of the block ;)

No, uprated that a short while back. Running a helix paddle now with a lightened single mass flywheel

If they do exit right , Ill stick a 265 lump in it. I can get them cheaper directly from Renault France than I can buy one here.
