    My card's taken a thrashing today!!

    Well i got paid today, and it was a rather tasty packet, with arrears and bonuses and overtime. So i thought i best give the card a bit of a thrashing.

    Joined the Basil and Steve club today and ordered one of these badboys:

    Alpine IVA-W202Ri


    And one of these:

    B&M Racing short throw lever


    And some of these:

    Alloy heater knobs


    And one of these kits:

    Double DIN Fascia adapter to accept my new head unit


    And then i went to my local Vaux stealer and ordered some bits:
    • GSi front bumper mesh and fog surrounds
    • Left and right lower weather strips as mine had none on from the factory it seems
    • Centre console for climate control, as there's less plastic to hack away. I've already removed the heater controls from another console but the console was junk

    i think it works out about £910 altogether Lee.

    Many thanks to Basil for helping me out with the headunit. i took his price and showed it to a local shop who said they'ed match it. I only did it this way so if i ever had to take it back it would be easier than posting it. CHEERS DUDE!

    not a chance pal. I had a go at modifying the spare console myself. I ordered a pastic welding kit and started to play around, what a friggin disaster!! I managed to cut around where the heater controls go and removed that block but this left the rest of it so flimsy and it just warped and bent and cracked.

    So off to the bodyshop it goes when the adapter arrives. I'm gonna be getting my Irmscher airdam sprayed at the same time, which is why i bought the GSi mesh, as it's the best match for my bonnet grille. I'll just have to trim it to fit

    I'll have it Geoff

    I had a bit of troule with POTN over that short shifter. I ordered it online and when i got home from work saying'please call us regarding your order.' So i rung up and they said we're not sending you 45102 (F17 pushrod change) as it won't fit your car we're sending you 41516 (F23 cable change). I explained that i didn't want that one otherwise i would have ordered it but they were adamant it wasn't fitting so i told em to shove and ordered it from Demon Tweeks which was more expensive but i always get good service
