Vinyl wrapped the fog lights.
Had wheel alignment done and a leaking tyre valve replaced. Swapped over original wheel bolts for black ones. Much nicer now with my wheels.

Had the torque app on today buy chance as I never do this normally and come across a Integra type r and this other civic coupe, long story short I beat them both and this Astra all on the same private road "must be busy on Sunday's here" and then looked at the app after!! Omg...I'm surprised I didn't detonate into space pic of screen shot.

If I could ask what OBDII port reader do you use, I've a Bluetooth one that works on my other VW group car with Torque lite but not on my Leon, plus I've got VCDS and that works ok, so the OBD port is ok.

cheers.

Yup really pleased with the results.
No locking ones. But. It generic bolt ends. Bit anyone could have the fitting.
I still have original locking bolt on each wheel. May paint them to look the same as the. NEw ones.
But will look for a set that locks first.
Here's a pic of the fog.
80's style!

I got it from a guy with vcds I had round one day to scan the car for £5 think you can get them on eBay for a tenner. Ignition is on yes? Not started but on.

Another new drivers door lock module. Always the same microswitch that fails, the one that detects if the door is open or not.

Cheers Andrew, that looks like ones I see on Ebay but went with the other ones for sale on Ebay as they had more information in the description and looked to meet my requirements (note: none of them actually state they work on VW group vehicles, which is no surprise as VW use a unique to them CAN protocol based on the ISO standards).

Found mine also works on BMW but not Jag's.

cheers
