A full distributor refurb courtesy of Diddi. Looks an excellent job, turned around super quick and a fully photographed process.

Also got myself a precautionary new set of coils while they are on offer at design911 (half the price of OPC).

No - front & rear windscreens out & front scuttle. There's a little bubbling on a couple of the door strips and front & rear bumper need sorting. Oh and a small dent on the front o/s wing where i fell out with a car wash in Antibes last summer (don't ask!)

Also going to have RS air ducts.

Then my work is complete and she'll be to the standard I want.

Was also looking at some Rotiform Fucs - but at nearly £5k a set, I decided to buy another car! So I now have a W202 C43 AMG as a stable mate. Impulse buy, but worth it.

Great engine, but I hope the rust isn't as bad as my sadly departed W202.

Just got myself a Becker CDR 21 and a Nokia amp off e-bay.....I got a bit carried away on the bidding, but just wanted something to replace the Sony head unit currently in the car.

Fitted a new battery, the current spell of cold weather found the existing one (Bosch S4) struggling and eventually it would not hold a charge. The Bosch battery was fitted in 2009 by previous owner, almost 10 years ago. 👍👍
I chose a Varta silver E44HD, 77AH with a 5 year guarantee, £85.50 less discount, price £72.67. I can recommend this site as I have used them twice before, Battery Megastore UK (eBay) the price includes 24 hour DHL delivery if ordered Mon-Friday.

Contact spring and 2 copper rivets for the handbrake lever, considerably cheaper than a new lever, like £500 cheaper!
