Oil wise you need a 5:30 Fully Synthetic. Halfords own is fine but im sure others may have some more ideas.

The ciggy lighter only comes aspart of the Smokers Pack, however you can buy a version from eBay which includes the lighter and an ash tray pot thing that fits in one of the cup holders.

lol Scalpel can be good, perticuraly for the modification im doing at the momment, fitting a red brake light behind the rear ford badge, pree has one on his but i dont have a dremil and tried to use a drill instead lol didnt go to plan, so scalpal skills 10 out of 10. :D

a good tip is to keep the bonnet lock oiled mate, spray once a month with wd40 and exercise it by opening and closing, these locks have been known to.... well lock up lol,

and if that happens your talking around 100-150 because the only way in to it is to smash the grill, meaning new lock, new grill and new badge plus labour, verses a can of WD-40 and 2 minutes of your time once every four weeks.
