    At the parts counter today

    Was in the parts dept. at the local Vaux garage today.
    My O/S foglight is smashed, so went in just for a price first. 77 quid!! Good job one of my mates is gonna get me one at cost price when is garage starts up with Vauxhall in december. Which i also found out when i was in the parts, cost price is about £55 or something.
    Also, out of curiosity, asked about a 1.9 diesel airbox incase i wanna do that mod. including VAT, £55. For the bottom, lid, and all sorts of clips etc.
    And couldn't help wondering what the price of some Irmscher Sportstars was. I've always liked them on a Mk 4 so thought i'd ask about them while i was there.
    For 4 wheels, without tires etc (just the 4 alloys) in 17" = £670 or something.
    for 18's, it is £1200! for just 4 wheels!!!
    That's mad that like!

    too rounded for the coupe. nice wheels though, and they hold their value really well.
