After having new pads and discs fitted to the front and a major service including rear and front washer replaced and a Haldex oil change the car has been dropped off today for a lengthy spa treatment.

Losing the car for three days while the paintwork is corrected and polished as well as a big interior scrub and gtechniq c1 and EXO so she's all ready for the summer.

So with no car and now no money I'll just wait in for my car.

I've treated her to a proper interior clean and general spruce up as she's up for sale.

Today I have lost most the skin on my hands and fitted some new 6k Xenon bulbs. Mainly as one had developed a flickr which has now been sorted. Also got rid of the orange repeaters for some silvervisions.

Looks much better but never again do I want to do that.

Was it the bulbs giving you the flickering problem...?
I'm getting the same and it's becoming more frequent. Usually, switching the lights off sorts it out but I'd rather fix it properly.

Yes matey. One was fine but the n/s would flicker but as you say switching the lights on and off would fix it. I read in to it and many said it was the bulbs. Sure has fixed mine. FYI they are a d1s bulb.

Thanks mate, all sounds very similar, nearside flickering and offside ok.
Bumper needs to come off for re-lacquering and a new grille, so I might as well save the hands when I'm at it.

:salute:

She was a little dirty after a day of hoonage on Saturday, so I gave her a clean and finally fitted the roof bars+bike carrier in preparation for some MTB action next week.

At the risk of sounding thick - what is a Calera :wtf:

In any case, wrong thread to ask questions - you should really start a dedicated one.

Had new rear disks and pads fitted at my local garage today after unsuccessfully trying to get the rear brake caliper carriers off myself. Brakes feel great now and ready for a 700mile trip around Wales next weekend with a few friends. Hopefully the weather stays nice, otherwise they will cancel again. Damn RWD drivers :)

We had an MOT (local council depot) and passed with an advisory on front shoes. Examiner commented that it was very tidy! :racer:

Not today really, more yesterday but I ran out of time and took solace in a bottle of Malt...!

Went from this, (excuse the bird muck)...

To this.....

Started to pi** down, so it was abandoned in favour of the bottle of Malt.
And finished this morning.

There are one or two things I want to change, the rings holder and the height of the number plate.
But for £120, I think this is a nice enough grille.

Got it here;

Very happy and he didn't charge me more postage for being a mad Highlander....

I wish my sport back looked like this. What alloys are they? They really suit the car. Is it lowered?

Thanks! Yes the car is lowered on ST X Coilover kit (not maxed out). The wheels are standard S3 alloys, I think. Most people ditch them, but I like how they look :)

Had a new windscreen fitted as a flippin great stone fell out the back of a truck on my way back from North Wales and cracked clean across it.... Could have been worse it could have hit my bodywork.

At least you will have a nice clean windscreen (for a while at least):racer:

Technically this was yesterday, but I played chicken with a pheasant while on a little road trip to Wales - the pheasant lost!

At this rate I'm going to have to mangle a honeycomb grill onto my non-facelift S3.

I'm sure I'll do an average job, the honeycomb looks so good compared to stock...
