I went to scrap yard the other day and saw a 8G with three horns, two face forward and there is one inside the wheel arch area behind the splash guard on the passenger side

I will get them bleed professionally. Don't want to spend 150€ on brake lines, no no no!

That wonít stop it. Using a good sealant or wax with a UV inhibitor is what stops it going punk.

Base coat underneath fades beneath the lacquer.

Wax it or use a sealant. Collinite 845 is very good, cheap, easy to apply and a bottle will mist likely last longer then the car

I use the ultra hd wax by autoglym a bit expensive but goes on really well and no effort to wipe off...

Purchased a set of front bumper protectors for £15 posted. Little tear but easily fixed with some rubber glue, some gorilla glue on the back and a repaint.

Now have the complete set to go on along with the door protectors from the city pack.

No more money spending now as i need to install the rest of the mods first.

Had a big servicing done & MOT @ 100.000km. Was surprisingly disappointed: wheel bearing on the back right hand side wasn't any good.. waterpump had a leak.. not what I expected when I bought this car. Oh well **** happens.

Considering that trim is darken than factory original, either solution finish or wurth trim dye is my guess.
