Oil changed along with the plugs.
I also opened up the filter for a look.

I also swapped the grey wheel for my spare black wheel from the Boxster to hopefully dull down the interior a little.

Cool


I have some clears on the way for the front but I may look out for the amber rears as I must say the amber does look killer against the black.

Interesting reading about the new categories:

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/car-news/consumer-news/99750/cat-a-b-s-and-n-cars-new-insurance-write-off-categories-explained

Previous C / D was based purely on financials rather than level of damage. C being total claim exceeding the value of the car and D being claim exceeds certain % of the value of the car.

Now S refers to structural and N non structural damage which will give buyers much more piece of mind when the seller sys "it was just a bumper mate" and they see the N on the history.


It certainly clarifies the amount of damage as opposed to just showing the results of a financial calculation. Thumb

Good things come to those who wait. Thumb

I'm glad a car finally turned up for you. I look forward to you bringing it up to your usual standard.

Good move with the steering wheel too. I'll be swapping my grey one for a black one as well as fitting black mats. I just need to decide whether I'm going with a black 3 spoke or the Cup wheel.

That did strike me about this car- I’d go fully amber, looks great.

I want to do the same, my interior is a sea of grey, so a black cup wheel should break it up nicely

Looks like a great project, looking forward to all the updates. It's amazing the difference something as simple as changing the steering wheel has totally changed the interior thumbsup

Nice one chum Thumb Are you going to do anything with the leather on the seats as one reminds me of my scrotum after I've got out of a very warm bath what

Amber rears on an early black coupe !?? Damn!!

There is a tipping point when a car gets to a certain age that you stop trying to make it look newer and you revel in its past.

Talk me into it!! frustrated Embarassed
