    Changed the oil and filter in the pi**ing rain, on ramps and on the drive way. Why do I always choose the wettest day of the year!

    I picked up a clean coolant tank the otherday, so today decided to swap out my manky one, the plan was to siphon out the coolant which I did and swap the tank and then put the coolant back in.But when it came out looking like it did, I thought it best to drain it and rinse the system through a few times and put fresh in.

    Old tank and coolant


    New one


    10 minute job turned into a couple of hours, but glad it's done

    Kerbing alloys has to be one of the most frustrating aspects of car ownership, especially when the Mrs says 'it wasn't me!' lol.

    Changed my 17" RC's for some 18" RSTT's today. Absolutely love the RC's but they're too small the RSTT's must weigh twice as much as the RC's, but they look so much better size wise.

    Mine needs a good clean/polish/wax and rain x too, weather has been so crap recently I haven't had a chance.

    Forgot another one too, re-wired my boost gauge the other day too, as was only illuminating when headlights were on, now it's in with ignition

    Finally got around to sorting out my droopy headlight today I did intend to swap the clip in the working one too but it started raining! I went with the aluminum clips off eBay and it all seems good can't believe I left so long not sure how I'll cope seeing the road ahead of me!
    Think I'll strip down and do some preventative maintenance on my rear wiper if it's dry tomorrow then hopefully next week it's dogbone and sump cleaning.

    Well, it was yesterday rather than today but I managed to get the car cleaned and a coat of Collinite applied, all in the sunshine! Best of all, the kids were actually behaving themselves indoors while I did it. Wife was at work.

    Was it all a dream...

    ...no! Ooh she's so shiny now.

    Perfect day.

    Sorry to hear about the rim JoJo - my worst nightmare.

    It didn't feel like the thread was being caught by me turning it, so I think it may have popped off the thread where it's been undone or tightened up too much before :-/

    not a huge amount of detail on here about that part messing up from what I've searched :s

    That's what was on my last MOT before I had the car passenger side headlight low and unable to adjust. The adjuster screws didn't appear to do much but ended up being fine but the plastic motor clip was snapped so it just pointed down.
    I didn't bother even getting the full bumper off just unscrewed the side I needed and pulled away enough to get the light out you can twist the motor out to inspect the clip it's obvious rigt away if it's knackered. With the light out and back off you can properly see the adjusters too as one of mine had been backed out totally so wasn't touching the light. I managed to wind it and guide it back in and it's now working again. I did an output test and both lights move up and down now just need setting properly.
    Worth the half hour to check though and I'd recommend the aluminum repair clips off eBay seriously solid looking!

    Just stripped down my rear wiper mechanism the brass pipe had split luckily nothing appears to have gone on the mechanism looked brand new. Replaced the pipe and it's all back up and running! Another nice easy job out the way.

    that splitter still makes me laugh, usually i would hate big pointless aero, but seeing as you actually track it and it isn't pointless it just makes me love it, the front end has so much presence because of it.

    No where near the figures most of you guys are getting (only on a stock k03s) but it's the first car i've ever managed to have running well enough to consider getting it mapped. That difference in torque was quite fun to play with on the way home :D Now to start reading up on intercoolers...
