    I might be game to pop along. Might be a flying visit as the wife wants to do some Christmas shopping but would be cool to tie in a trip to Bluewater and meet up with some fellow AudiSporters.

    Haven't taken a car apart with AndyB in a while. My Fiesta and the black dash conversion was the last time I think. lol

    Remember this Andy mate?

    Haha good ol days @ Herts RS :)

    Didnt like the smoke from the dash when we had finished.

    Come on down Steve it will be a laugh... and it will be good to see you again a havent seen you since last year at the meet when i brought my Jet Ski up.

    Have to say the Mrs's E46 325i is a good laugh in the wet, since driving a newish BMW i would like a go of an M3 CSL.

    That was a bit scary. Was only one wire for the ACT guage and nothing got damaged so all was good.

    Will have to see what happens with the MOT mate but may still try and get along. Will send you a text mate once I know what's what

    just replace them with some BKR6E's mate, they cost about 1.50quid each and are spot on for that engine.
