Lmao yes,
Those were suggestions for Stoney regarding his daily commute to work with his dog,
While his focus was in the body shp getting repaired after some handy cap dropped a motorcycle on the front wing.

GSM who has the same car as me has kindly showed me what his looks like n I've sourced a place on ebay that'll do me it for 14quid posted so I just gotta confirm that it is actually the right one n pay for it. Soon as I get it I'll be wrapping it also.

Sounds Good mate, and a quality price I look forward to the results.

I'm always slightly suspicious of someone with an over clean engine.
Bit too OCD for me. ;)

Not that I can put up any photos of this mod but I've now got ELM config working and have so far activated auto locking at around 7mph, activated double locking on one press, activated auto heated windscreen and disabled the seat belt bonger (not that I'd actually drive without my belt on but still lol)

Overall I'm really pleased with these minor little changes to the settings. Gonna activate instant fuel readout too.

Big thanks to Preee on his great guide as well as obvious big thanks to our Russian friend for the software. And obvious thanks to my Irish mate Lenny for very kindly loaning me his ELM327.

No problem mate,
I wouldn't have been able to present it to you had Preee and CivilZ not put in the hard work before to supply the modified elm327 and the user friendly software

Good work mate,
I look forward to seeing the stereo and reverse camera system sounds cool.
You could always sell your stock system and reinvest in another mod.

Was thinking that mate but wouldn't get much for it. Hasn't even got the AUX button :(

Was thinking about butchering the front off it n making a dummy faceplate to stick over the new headunit as a security feature cause I don't like the look off the dummy covers on ebay, they look too dummy lol
