    Just did a 500 mile round trip from Kent to Chester. Car didn't miss a beat and the CC was a real pleasure to have! Averaged about 80mph and 46mpg so can't be to unhappy with that!

    I bloomin' love my motor!

    Looked at the annoying rattle(s) i have. Traced to the rear quarter speaker grills. Couldnt be bothered to strip the panels off (grills dont look removable) so its on the list for another day.

    Measured up for new wheels, made little templates to see just how far they will poke...

    S3 is having a rest in recent days.

    I've been using my commuter to keep the miles off the Audi, so I'm a little upset at the moment.

    Not sure i can take much more of the soot chucker everyday. I need some speed.

    Amazing the difference in state in which I show up to work in the Audi, I'm in a massive rage because everyone was driving far too slowly....

    but in the MG ZT CDTi I'm calm....as I know it's not going to win any races, overtaking is basically a no no, it'll just save me a bob or 2, and actually I'll arrive in the same amount of time, traffic isn't going anywhere :-(

    i work for Landrover, the ZT diesel has the same engine as the Freelander 1. cheap parts

    Plus A3 diesels have turbos like butter!! I've had the 170 before. brilliant car, just hold their value too much for a second car.

    Not hard at all, just a 8mm socket to remove the glovebox, VCDS and stereo removal keys.

    Remember you will need RNSE MK2 with the Media button, it will not work on MK1.

    Prices -

    Replacement glovebox £59
    AMI Module £140
    Wiring harness £39

    Deciding what to do next

    Nothing too exciting. Had a weekend shift at the lab, so drove to work in it.

    Must say though, the only good thing about having to work on a Sunday is that the roads are fairly empty, allowing me to hoof it somewhat =]

    IIRC the old Astra 16v GTE had a 150bhp 2.0L engine in it and was quick in those days.......suffered alot from torque steer though. My dad had one. I loved the digi dash and how it all disappeared when the sun shone thro the back window

    The Astra must have been tweaked.......I bet it had a turbo on it as that was an easy mod to do and took power to over 200bhp.

    The GSi was properly quick when it was released - as are most Vauxhalls as that's the only claim to fame they have! all the old ones handle like sacks of s**t though.

    Time for a remap maybe?
