Welcome, Nipper. I can concur with what Peter said about the FB page although I do constantly abuse him. He seems to like it Surprised

I have now done all the Graphite grey trim but it now shows up the rest. The door handles I guess are Metropole blue but the seats and lower dash is a light grey any one know what the code would be so I can order some dye.

Thanks.
Doug.

This weekend decided to have to trip down to Cardiff, car went well and returned 25.5mpg.

On the way back saw that Bicester Heritage had a Scramble meet on so decided to stop and have a look. Had a good chat to guys on the TIPEC stand and looked over many different models.

Congrats on the purchase, looks very tidy and nice mileage too. I saw it advertised with a nice plate (I assume it didn't come with it Very Happy ).

I changed out my stereo for the double din:https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=2ahUKEwjpp9a00fTdAhWkDMAKHfC8CpsQFjABegQICRAB&url=http%3A%2F%2F911uk.com%2Fviewtopic.php%3Ft%3D124937%26sid%3Dc3d789860ff0534ca18a0768b68cdcd0&usg=AOvVaw3jy3Qy5Oj_RYLVKkWH-2rQ

I'm pleased with the double din set up, not overly happy with the Pioneer unit which can be temperamental on the car play - plus I wish I'd opted for a volume knob.

Keep us posted on the mods Thumb

Another question. My wipers work ok on slow and fast but on intermittant it only sweeps once then stops, if you change the speed it sweeps once then stops.

Any clues what could be wrong.

I have been busy with the upgrades just finished fitting an Apple play double din stereo.

Very pleased with the results just need a bezel for the heater control to finish it off.
