Right, this will be the last update on the mk3 for the foreseeable future. Likely to be pretty much off the road for the next few years anyway.
Finally got round to doing the mudflaps, now I know a lot don't like mudflaps, but I wanted them for their practical use as much as their, IMO, cosmetic enhancement. Hence why I got extra wide ones for an XR2i In one of the pictures you can see that I have also moved the tailpipe even further into the bumper, looks nice and discrete, but noticable at the same time.
Couple of months ago I got a set (5) of XR2i/ghia alloy wheels, these were an option on my LX (that wasn't ticked) so I don't mind putting them on.

Even got every receipt for every tank of fuel I have put in - all from the same place. Sad I know. Also got a spreadsheet going of how much I've spent and the date I bought each item
Got every tax disc from when it was new in a frame - very sad.
He was not, he merely suggested that the car should not be doing that. If you take the time to read his other 2245 posts you will know he is pretty clued up and car performance and modification. I rather think he was trying to help you. FOCA - please correct me if I am wrong.
