The s badge comes off as a unit. You just pull forward firmly
. Clips are strong. You won’t break them.
Easy. Takes seconds. Bumper off is a faff.

I chose bumper off. I've seen how rare and expensive those S badges are and didn't want to risk messing with 17 year old brittle plastic :)

I’ve deducted at least two of my door speakers are bust/buzzing

It’s a good day.

I wanna open up the packs to have alook. But I know they will get scratched and damaged lol. So going to leave them wrapped up.. its my polycarbonate window sent from acw. https://www.acwmotorsportplastics.co.uk/

Have a look they are very reasonablely priced.
I can't wait to start putting the car together

Finally got my car to a hand car wash today.
I could do it myself but logistically difficult (and a little lazy) lol.
Looks nice but will need to be done almost every week as the yard at work is megga dusty and its heart breaking to see how bad the cars get up there.
never use them myself , my issue with them is most of time they use a very acid wheel cleaner as it ruins the wheels one reason i had my sd fr wheels redone and the last 2 clio16v i had the same was happening to them wheels but never redid them, even seen people with cars lacquer raising due to same thing.

I agree but doing it at home just sets my dog off (barking). If im outside and he isnt he kicks off.
Sounds like a poor excuse but it truly isnt.
Got a nosy neighbour who moans if the tv is on to loud 🤨
Easier to get it done by someone else.

Sayin that, going to give it a polish at some point with decent products.
It deserves that at least.

my mate works at Fords cleaning customer cars and he uses an acid too, used it to strip his bumper paint with a pressure washer lol

My Cupra is slowly getting the R boosto treatment. Fitted the Cupra R dials to my clocks, very nice. I first tried to just put the other cupra R clocks in but that didn't work and the clocks said 143000 anyway. also stuck on a bit of carbon wrap to the blanking plate for an extra 3 BHP;)

The rear fog lights are still stuck on because of ham fistedness removing the lower dash, but I've got another light switch coming today. I sorted not driving around with my fog lights on by simply taking the bulbs out :rolleyes: The airbag light is now on though so in a crash my passengers face is a crumple zone. Mine is a 2002 and you can't turn it on or off via the keyhole in the glove box, because their isn't one. I'm sure there was one there on my last one.

Also fitted an N75 valve from the Cupra R and I'm now getting 18psi of boost. Which is nice. The one that was on would only give me 5psi until the engine had warmed up a bit, and then I'd restart the engine and get 15psi max.

Got a little more confused about my limp mode.

Took the car out for a shake down and straight away 6psi but after 5min I was getting 30psi again, winner must be mechanical...
30min later, after some dual carriageway driving, and I’m down to 6-8psi again with this faults code:

No over boosting it just seemed to pick the code up whilst cruising (it was on cruise control).
Need to start looking into what this could be as from memory there’s about 20 different options!

The car is half way between services so gave it an oil n filter change.
Had plenty more to do but ran out of time.

I thought they came up on a separate code? Will google the options now to see if can try unplugging some parts before replacing.


*just looked it up on Ross-tech and 02 sensors is one of the possible faults. Looks like I’m in for a hard slog to find this one as it’s anything from injectors to a boost leak.

After a 🤬week at work, barely having lunch breaks, finally got out to fit the HEKOs, obligatory forum sticker (replacing the garish Arnold Clark one!) and a little bit of coding (alarm chirp, needle sweep, one click mirror fold and my favourite so far… leaving home lights!!!)

Also got carbon effect MFD and Touchscreen, combination of Carista and today Car Scanner Pro for long coding via Carista OBD adapter 🤓😁
