cv gaiter £4

valating materials £5

spark plugs £6

Tax £225

log book £25

Strut brace I had (£30)

cd player I had (£30)

Tuning box £10

cause I couldnt tax in time i didnt get tracking/alignment and balancing done £20 via mate but to be honest Iv had 110 and its pretty spot on :)

weeks insurance £42

Cams where on loan but cause I couldnt identify one of them didnt do them and ecu wasnt worth doing with cams.  Ecu £35.
