got up at 9 and stripped the old girl back a bit to check and regap the plugs, clean out the air filter ( scoopin intake should be renamed " hoover"). Chilled for a bit, got bored and started to fit my wideband kit, got the main body in the grounds tidied away and routed with the same tubing as Honda used so it cant be seen readily and earthed at the ECU point and the rest of the cables where they need to be, I'll maybe finish it tomorrow :P

What did you do to your car today?

Post anything from just washing or cleaning to mods near misses or whatever.

So let me start.

Changed it to Irish plates, fitted Heko wind deflectors.

Got in and drove to the pool. Got back in and drove back home. got in again and drove the kids to a sleepover. Got back in and drove the Mrs to the local Tai restaurant. Got in after that and popped into tesco's. Got in and drove back home. Parked up and locked it. Left it filthy dirty.

Washed it, filled it up with V-Power, then proceeded to upset an M5 owner and a Focus RS.

P.S. thanks for clarifying Robbo and (off topic) having only just got in from doing my car I am sincerely sorry for any ****storm I kicked up for you (and the mods) earlier in the COTM thread. Having read the three pages I need a lie down but I need to sit up due to all the Tai food in my belly
