    Bargin found at Halfords - Pics Included!

    Hey Guys,

    I haven't posted in ages as I have been really too busy in my new job. The outside of my car is a mess right now, I am missing one of the bump strips, I have had holes in the rear bumper for months where I started to fit parking sensors but didn't finish. I really need a week off work to get everything sorted.

    Anyway I was in Halfords the other weekend, looking at there reduced items as I often do when I am in there for screen wash or something. I found a universal BMC DIA kit with no price on it. I asked one of the guys and he said it was £100, so I remarked "but its got bits missing" then he said I could have it for £50. When I got home I actually found there was no bits missing. LOL

    Anyway I think its great, better than the Pipercross & K&N induction kits I have tried. The sound isn't over the top, but it sounds great.

    I also got bored one evening and painted the engine cover.

    I just need to secure it in place using two brackets. I think I might paint it too.

    No I don't think it is, and I have no clue as I have been unable to find one of these to buy. Knowing BMC its a lot more than £50. LOL
