Haha, it did indeed! Completely forgot to reply. Now safely on Version 9.

Took 3hrs 30mins though!
Ace... at least it lets you turn the engine on / off inbetween though. When I installed mine I was getting the sub fitted next day so had to sit in the car till midnight to let it finish :D

Yeah I didn't want to risk turning it off and on and bricking the system so I just left it ticking over on my drive and blocked it in with my van! :rolleyes:

After much @rsing around with threaded bolts, finally managed to swap my aging rev D for a shiny new rev G:



Unfortunately, there wasn't as much info as I'd have liked... so I didn't figure to undo the bracket holding it until much frustration later. Next time, I'll be starting with that:



Hmm, I'd like to say it feels like it pulls stronger... but really I think its a placebo. Oh well, PCV next... and considering some red coil packs. Both of which will also make no difference me thinks.

:censored: Had to mount the kerb to let an ambulance past... unfortunately the kerb looked like Dantes Peak and my wheel now looks like this:



I accept that some things are unavoidable... stone chips... kerbing alloys... so I'd say on the feked off scale I'm about 6.5/10. Which I think is pretty good considering.

Potential excuse for a wheel colour change lol

:D Well, I've booked a place to do a repair. If they do a good job, then if I can ever make my mind up on a colour, I'll get the same place to refurb all 4. Trouble is, I like black... but it doesn't really stand out against the blue. I'd like white, but heard they are a nightmare to keep clean. So maybe gun metal grey or anthracite... not sure I'm brave enough for gold, but have considered it!

Frick me... you must have strength of the bear to pull these by hand!



Getting them back in was easier:

After PCV n Coil packs, MPG has finally gone up!! :funk: 28.1mpg, my best yet. I'm hoping to get >30 on a long motorway run.



Also, this arrived, I know how to show a girl a good time!



Bad news is, number plate bulb blew.



Couldn't be bothered faffing around trying to get LEDs that worked so:



Really simple to change, just 2 screws and a trim tool.

So far two mobile wheel repairers couldn't be :censored: to turn up (thanks WheelPerfection and FixAScratch!). So just left me waiting in all day. Decided to take it somewhere and get it done. Going to repair for now and consider a refurb when I can make my mind up on a colour.

In the meantime, LED boot:

42mm C10W White


Mirror visors:

2x 39mm C5W White



Giving me a creepy glow:

Topped up the oil before a 500 mile round trip. Needed 350ml topping up after 2000 miles. Also made 33mpg down the motorway. :D

Then got to the country roads and drove it like I stole it:



Then spent 3 hours with Black Hole and Natty Blue:

@Legojon - Lovely Speed Blue MK2 LCR.

@Legojon & chriskeegan - Just a quick question regarding the NAV update, was the unit on the original map from factory and you jumped straight to V9? I have never given my unit an update since I brought the car from new!

In addition, does it still keep the SEAT Dealership's as the point of interests or does that get removed with the software used?

Cheers :D Yeah, it was whatever version came out of the factory. I've done the same with my FR+ and jumped from factory to version 7 I think. Both went smoothly.

Um, I didn't know it showed Seat dealers as points of interest lol. It still shows car parks and petrol stations though, although I only noticed it did that about 3 weeks ago :D
