Cool...uk its 45k miles interval on the cambelt on 2.0. When i done mine it came off perfect. Other countrys have longer intervals on identical engines bit bizarre...
Bit of clutch judder on cold mornings normal just needs a few more revs til warm. Has it got a kepad immobilser? If so ive got the instructions for changing to a pin of your choice.
4 pot calipers on front?

Nope no keypad thingy,

I checked the car over first before starting, it was definately cold, just key in.

Didn't notice any four pots but then I wasn't looking, he did say he changed the pads n discs on front and it seemed cheap, it was 109 quid or 190 all in, it def started with a 1, I wasn't paying attention.Did say a lot of the parts like that are transferable between uk spec.

Def got the factory fitted bilsteins, they look like forest stage spec struts, 40mm stanchions

So...........

Offered up the wing on Saturday.........didnt go well....... didnt like the fancy brackets I bought, but they were for steel panels.

Made some crap brackets at work and literally screwed the new wing on, to the body......feathered the joins down ready to bond it with GRP.

A couple of dodgy cuts, but nothing that cant be cured, just as well Im not trying to weld it on.

Either way up, it fits, its on, more fibreglassing !!!! grrrrrrrrrrr

Well despite the lack of gel coat on the join, it almost looks like it grew there.

Cant do anymore this side of Monday.

Off to Czech Republic in the morning, without getting too graphic, someone has a red hot date with a turkey baster.

If I see any rotaries on my travels ill post them, but ive not seen one in the last 4 trips, its all Skodas and Audis ( apologies for my foul language)

See you on the other side.
