bit of an update, on the return journey from cumbria (nice place) it ticked over to 17,000 miles :D

been too long since the last mod, so bought some custom heater control knobs to fit, ive also bought a replacement sub switch which has a blue led instead of red which i will pick up tomorrow and get swapped over,

for the next mod i have a couple of options, either the gas strut bonnet lifters or the clear rear lens with dual reverse, ive also been thinking about getting a clear high level rear brake light (not liking the red) so on the look out for 1 of them.

another update

still waiting on my brake light ..(taking its time now)

also working on another mod, ive not seen done before, it wont add any beneficial gains but will add some colour to the area

also removed a front part of the air intake, and can definitely notice an increase in torque, however found out i couldn't get my bonnet open today, must of knocked the cable when i removed the item

this is the part of the induction system i removed

20130616_100626_zps1eabfc49.jpg

to remove it open ya bonnet, remove the front plastic piece with the 4 screws

20130616_100506_zps5c332e2b.jpg

then undo a bolt either side of the part, using a T30 allen key

20130616_100202_zpse5f655f8.jpg

once the screws are out it will be free however still attached to the airbox, it takes a good hard tug to pull it off, be careful when doing this as not to disturb the locking cable, (this is where i think i broke mine resulting in me not being able to open my bonnet)

REMEMBER to either keep the bolts safe somewhere in ya house etc or put them back in the holes and screw in tightly

(i put the screws back in and did them up tight and they are still in there strong)

the part is on order should arrive some time next week, i must say tho this mod is purely cosmetic, it has no performance values

should brighten up the engine bay a little hopefully

sounds good vince B) and the focus engine bay needs brightening up to with all the plastic in there. :(

that's what I want to do with my engine bay once the out side is all done :)

will be waiting with very open eyes next week for the pics to appear
