    Car is in for repairs today.

    Getting a nice new Saffy bumper fitted and a new nearside Crystal headlight unit, Got a 60 plate Fiesta for a courtesy car in Blue which is quite a nice colour..
    So bumper needs a new home, so 50 as it is..

    Crystal headlight glass is no good but the reflector unit is in great condition 50, provisionally sold to someone on VOC..subject to payment.

    Arguing is pointless....she may not be right but she's never wrong

    Tell her a remap is just having your satnav updated.....

    Well i am going back down there tomorrow to drop off my spare battery, as my other went flat after my relay antics..

    This is the little car i have 1.25 engine, can't fit anything in the boot, seats are uncomfortable, can't hear the engine, switches are plasticky, for a 12k car it is crap, only good thing is the stereo.


    Will try and get pics of the car tomorrow, but it will only be a before and after, as i am sure they won't want me getting involved.

    I think Gary as just pointing out how rubbish the car was, and a picture so that we know what one looks like so that we don't inadvertently bye one.

    Well i had F@@k's years ago and they are still the same, cheap interior, plastic everywhere, will probably be on the scrap heap at 120k and 10yrs old.
    By the way for my punishment of having this crap car i have been given th 60ps version, i think i will just leave it on my drive and wait until i get the R back.

    Slight update. Got the until Monday, the guy there told me you can no longer get a non winter pack r bumper. So looks like I will have 2 holes where my wiper motors will go in the new bumper.

    Oh really, dammit!! I've seen on VOLVO SPEED that the guys there have caps that fill the holes and the grooves for these bumpers might be worth checking into???
