    My Latest Mod

    I get bored on Sundays and tend to find it hard to find something to do..... But thanks to the good folk at LMF Vauxhall sending me my bonnet lifters, I had sumit to do..

    Fitted my new shiny bonnet lifters!

    I was going to spray my engine cover but decided it looked good once cleaned with trim polish ( need to do the air box now coz it looks out of place not shining! )

    I did have a set of numberplates to put on but they spelt "Vauxhall" with a small v not a capital as wanted so sending them back to get replacements.. Bugger Bugger!!

    they were the same to me, (and my dad was the person serving me ) ordered them on a monday and had them tuesday lunch,
    may aswell order some of the brake wind deflector thingy bobs at the same time, cant remember the part numbers but there like £4 each and just clip by the front brakes to keep them cooler, (fitted to the GSi's and some vectras i think?)

    Looks good. Fitted mine last week.... bought them from the LMF stand at Traxx for £12.50 I used different washers on the wings as the knuckle was slipping though it when tightening up.

    Owh dont get me started on teh usless people at vaux.

    I went in to get a CD holder for the centre console.

    "Where have you seen this"

    "In some Astras I looked at"

    "is it an Vauxhall part?"

    "You tell me"

    He procedes to read through the Irmy cataloge aswell as some others, then taps away on the pc

    "nope... it doesnt exist"

    "yes it does"

    "No you must be thinking of another car or something"

    "no it was an astra"

    taps away again

    "You sure its an Astra G?"

    "Yes"

    Taps more"

    "owh here it is"

    That took about 35 minutes for him to find on the system.

    Then they wanted £46.95 for it.
