It does mate, thought it would be a 3 week wait but turned out to be 6, just glad I went on a whim and booked "early" otherwise I'd be looking end of June lol

When I was stock nobody bothered to play traffic light grand prix with me. Now I'm driving around in limp mode everyone wants a go xD

yep! that's it even a polo had me mate, when your back up and running you'll get your own back.
i must admit though i saw a lot more nicer cars as all the traffic would catch up to you instead, but couldn't play with any of them.

New pedal picked up to get rid of the creak. Thought it was the CMC but turned out to be the springs.

Also turns out I need the only missing bit in my socket set so having a BBQ instead xD

Super chuffed with myself, pedal box & CMC replaced.

No problems, leaks and importantly.. clicks!

For someone that never went near his car with a spanner back in Jan I've done most of the work minus the clutch and header.

Sorting out the milltek rattles today with the powerflex hangers then polybush mounts + full service (inc valve clearences) at Grinspeed on Tuesday.

Will also get Stevie to fix my saggy undertray, my road has 6 speedbumps and I died a little inside yesterday when I cruised past a bunch of people checking out my car only to scrape on a bump xD

Had the engine bay stripped looking for the cause lit up by my blue light saber keyring
Not far from me either ...Insurance Company with declared mods spill the beans buddy for less than £600

Just wondering if you're the fella with the turbo'd FN?

The company was Red Star Insurance through Adrian Flux, not tried Greenlight yet as I was only getting an idea for quotes. Chris Knott wouldn't even touch our postcode without a garage!

In regards to the mounts... wow what a difference.

Stevie said that stock were in good nick so must be crap mounts in general then! Difference is staggering. Gear changes are now consistent and on/off throttle is smooth as silk, feel a lot more "attached" to the engine response now. Did the 2 underside ones (left the top as it causes the most vibrations and I can whip that on in 30mins if I fancied it in the future myself).

Also full service done, sparks were white Runs much better and got an extra 8 mpg on the way home (mine has always been on the low side of economy) so hopefully up to what it should be now.

Highly recommend the mounts.

Tesco bleach, water + 99p syringe and got rid of 90% of the algae from the rear lights.

Will get some anti algae and after a few more washes should be algae-free

Third pic shows the difference after a squirt, 5 minute wait then rinse.

20/80 bleach/water is what I read elsewhere. I bought the thinner bleach so it ran better through the gaps so did 40/60 with no issues. Just wiped it off paint before leaving to eat away at the algae.

Also wore my fav hoody like an idiot and bleached my pocket
