E5GDM, looking at getting the st diffuser from European parts, how hard was it to fit ? Have you got any pictures for a guide ? Would be appreciated

All pretty straight forward....
Remove the old deffuser by first drilling out the single pot rivet at each end (there's 3 at each end, but only the inner one is for the deffuser),& then just gently pull it off (you can see the clips on the new one).
I clipped the 2 parts of the new deffuser together, then attached it to the car by pushing it on, ensuring all the clips located.
There's 2 protruding 'lugs' on the bottom of the defuser that you hinge back under the car, & using 2 nuts secure them to the bolts already in place under the spare wheel well (you'll see them when you look under the car).
Then I drilled 1 hole & used a self taper at each end (instead of pot rivets) to attach the lower ends of the new deffuser.
Then I cut back the original tail pipe to allow me to attach the tail pipe.
Job done :)

Not too bad then, makes a massive improvement, did it cost you around £250 then for the diffuser, painting it and tail pipe ? Debating whether to give it a go :)

It cost me £75 to get it sprayed in my local body shop, shouldn't be any harder or cost you anymore really.

So although its not that obvious, the bit arrowed had to go

Looks tidier.

My job today entailed pulling my dash apart again.
This morning I discovered that my air vent control wasn't changing the vent direction anymore.
I knew that when I swapped my heater control panel over on thursday due to a duff aircon switch that I'd cracked the collar so thought it may have snapped.
On pulling everything apart I found that the wire stem goes all the way through the plastic so it was still turning but the other end had unclipped from the vent actuator at the rear.
Luckily I already had a spare wire so replaced the damaged one and ensured both ends were properly seated.
Bit of a faff but had to be done.
