    i hadnt but thanks for the link, i was thinking more of a built into where my double din is and been able to remove it when not in the car. (no wires showing etc).

    i can see it been a faf but i think it will look smart.

    that does also but i want it more integrated into the console if possible?

    Thanks dude, i couldn't live with knowing i didn't own the car myself i waited till i was 23 to get this car :) did without for many years. hard work and persistence pays off :)

    + the fact i refuse to pay like 2.5k for a 1.2 and then 1.5k to insure it xD also have a hate for small cars lol

    This cost me 8.4 + 1.1 for insurance :) 1st year driving

    Hi mate, can I ask how you wrapped the grill surround? And how easy was it? I'd like mine in gloss carbon but have never used wrap before so wondering if this is something I could tackle myself first time.

    Sounds good, makes it even easier as I'm planning on doing the grill slats with plastidip so glad I don't need to take everything apart.

    Sorry to be a PITA but can you remember how big a sheet you needed to do the surround and numberplate bar?
