Smile 3 months and 15,000 miles into my 2.2 EX ownership

Hi all,

Had the car a little while and been reading the forum for a while but only just signed up.

Got a tidy EX in April, put some CTR wheels on it and got about 10k miles getting the soft bridgestones, so have opted for some harder tyres this time.

Just finished fitting my led sidelights, they look the business and only took ten minutes.

Looking forward to learning all about the car and getting the best out of the forum.

Hope to be in touch with some of you really soon.

Cheers

Thanks everyone,

I'm using my Android mainly for access just now so will try and get some pics up just as soon as I can.

Haven't cleaned my wheels for a good 2K miles so will do that before I post anything.

I've got lots of questions to ask and am am just trying to take in all the information already out there on Wiki.

The GPS real speed trick is one that I can't wait to try out.

Will save my questions and post them in the appropriate threads though.

Not so keen on stickers but may put one under the bonnet.

Bye for now and thanks for the welcome.
