Mines did and same experience with Timpson when trying to get a key cut for the Jeep - wouldn't do it unless I bought the key from them with transponder which they had to order in at £145......I had bought a third blank key with transponder which you can code from the other two keys for £8 from a well known online auction site Dont know eventually got a one man band key cut shop to cut it for £3.50.......

Not quite all in one week, but:

New rear lid struts
Lower cam cover gaskets
All rear heat shields and bumper supports
200 cell sport cats.

Probably made it all back by now in appreciation Grin

You should be able to post a few good pictures as you're assembling all this!
I did the rear screen and wiper delete earlier this year - looks great, but as I drive it in the rain too it can be a bit of a faff sometimes!
(I just carry a small squeegee thing behind my seat now)

Fitted my 3 spoke wheel which has just returned from Royal Steering wheels with a leather airbag I recoloured (originally red).

Thanks Dream911 and Endoman.

Wheel was a bit of a labour of love - couldn't find a black leather airbag so ended up buying one off the Bay in red and recoloured it myself.

Yep, I like the Becker Cascade; even better with V6 map disc and a little bluetooth gismo that lets me stream my music aswell from my iPhone - screen colours match in with the dials nicely in my view. I had an Indianapolis before; but didn't quite match this.

Took me a bit to work out what happens.
The replacement projector has a shutter that flips out of the way when on main so the projector does both. As Tore's kit is very neat and compact I will be using his bulb kit and keep the LED mains I already have. Rennlisters like it so I thought I would give it a try.
Don't you just get fed up with being dazzled by Range Rovers and X5s etc?

New screen washer nozzles, piping and valves. A real pain of a job in the cold.

Valves failed, driver's nozzle clogged with ***** internally, well then the passenger one wouldn't match. Pipe cheap, Oetiker clamps not.
I blame it all on Sainsbury's screen wash which also left a rainbow stain on the bonnet.

I had a blocked washer one way valve which I duly changed however I recall my local OPC advising that Porsche original screen wash can for some reason congeal with the standard Halfords or other brand we no doubt all use causing these blockages. Anyone else heard this?

Reported on Pistonheads and here it doesn't mix turns to goopy glue.
Doesn't surprise me but then it sounds like a good sales gimmic.
