    Talking Gold coupe turbo journal of awesomeness

    Just bought it, 2000 X plate coupe turbo.

    85k with FSH. Standard all round, with white/black leather/alacantara interior, and factory built Sav Nav, although trying to source the CDROM for it as we speak !!

    I intend to keep it very low key modification wise.

    Booked it in next week for a cambelt, its got 85k and I cant find a receipt or proof thats its been done. So, to be safe I wont be driving it until the works completed.

    Will service it myself with oil filer, air filer, pollen filter, fuel filter, general check all round of fluids. Last done at 79k, but like to do this on any car I buy, for peace of mind really.







    Replaced the x2 vanity mirror bulbs with white SMD leds, done that also with the rear number plate bulb, glovebox, boot bulb, side lights, and x4 interior map lights.

    x4 501 for map lights
    x1 42mm festoon for boot
    x1 42mm festoon for boot
    x2 501 for side lights
    x1 36 LED single fit for the reg plate
    x2 41mm festoon bulbs for vanity lights, but got the 12 SMD led ones, just bent the connectors down for a snug fit.

    Some links for reference incase anyones thinking of the same.

    Been getting a smell of oil in the cabin to, suspected rocker gasket or oil line, well turns out its this.






    HUGE split, will get it replaced asap and clean up where its leaked.
