It's very similar to the one I got a few months ago, Halfords did me a deal for adding an antenna - pretty pleased with it tbh mainly as I can get TMS anytime time I want as well as looking heaps better than my old arrangement at which a few on here justifiably raised their eyebrows laugh

Edit: just realised I posted in wrong place rolleyes judge

The one I bought was the 180Ui model. The Plus has the ultimate version (same make but higher spec). This does all the illumination stuff, hands free, and more stuff I have no idea about smile

No, no Plus project with the Electric blue; there is not enough to do with it. Just improve the paint, the leather, clean the engine bay more, add a sticker set to the engine bay and keep up the maintenance.








There is another Plus I own that I will be doing a thread on though wink laugh

Reading the thread and you mention some tuning goodies, will you go front mount intercooler or stick to standard or upgraded sidemount?

Just fishing for ideas off someone who has a lot of real coop ownership experience.

What I really want is the FMIC that is underslung behind the bumper, long and not so tall. To prevent any bumper cutting. But this is hard to find. So, may need to go the normal FMIC route and do some modifying to the front bumper.

The current plan (subject to change like all my plans) wink Will be GT28rs, FMIC, larger diameter downpipe, fuel pump mod, FPR, map and some kind of boost control.

I am only after 300 bhp (only, hahahaha) and I am not too sure if the bigger bore SMIC is up for this. Will need to find a clever person....

I don`t think an uprated side mount is up to 300bhp.
Does Flea not do a no cutting front mount kit?

Yes he does. This is the kind of thing I am on the lookout for. But these mods and the installation of the GT29rs will need to wait until I am home next time.

Yes Ruebs. We have had two rented houses since we sold. One in Malvern whilst we waited for Brooke to finish school and one here in Thornton Cleveleys whilst we we looking for one to buy here. Now found and bought.

Interestingly, we were all supposed to exchange today (29th) but a day ago my solicitor emailed and said it was delayed due to the chain further up to early next week. Real pain as I have limited time home!!!

Hopefully see what they look like later laugh thumb

Yeah, it's actually FK1000P paste wax, I put a typo FK100P so I can see why it seems confusing laugh tongue

I've just bought a machine polisher too, hoping to reduce that slight mismatch due to all panels not being resprayed at the same time.

Check out this guy on youtube:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KP-eAddv2sk

I found a starter kit with the exact same pads and polish as he's using there.

I'm loving seeing this come on after you usual attention to detail and hard effort.

In today's pictures you managed to catch a tram in there too, a bonus.

I'm also surprised about your Buxus sempervirens placement. Where I live that wouldn't be there for more than 10 mins laugh
