  1. Not a done to, but a done with.... Used my 7 to jump start our generator for our 500 attendee Outdoor Cinema event in the estate of a stately home. Terrible movie (greatest showman), but the 480 ladies attending loved it. Pretty much maxed out our enormous soundsystem and gained some temporary deafness. Awesome night. wouldn't have happened if I didn't have my jump leads and a willing battery
  2. Replaced smashed up rear light custer with replacement from AMS, and properly secured fuel tank exhaust heat shield with proper machine screws and washers in prep for today's MOT. Heat shields are a thing for the MOT now, so check yours. Its only the "Fire Risk" ones such as manifold, cat and fuel tank shields.
  3. Painting Replacement Brake Calipers

    You can get clear coat VHT
  4. I got the same ones, they feel pretty nice. Rubber, not plastic. Definitely felt firmer than the shagged ones I took off. fit perfect, no issues with them. Got the same upper isolater/shock boot as well - 1.5 years on and no tears or perishing
  5. its all a conspiracy!
  6. honestly reboxing rebranding and/or faking is getting so prevalent now I basically avoid critical parts coming from eBay or overseas companies. I now only buy any super critical "holds my wheel on or slows me down" stuff from a couple local motor factors - and even then im choosy with the brand of part if there is a choice. you can inspect them on the premises and there are humans there if you have a problem. Most of the time its only a few quid more. Im not sure about checking the rear shocks as I know mine are genuine (saw the KYB van drop them off to my local depot)
  7. are you ever gonna read my PM ?   :P

      a-ha!   I sent it to CrazyCatLady (without spaces) which must be someone else

  8. Bug splatter

    not sure whats worse, the bug splatter or the jiggalo number plate
  9. I finished my super cheap (maybe 10 quid) and super lightweight (about 3kg total) "sound proofing" in the rear cabin and boot area today Totally pleased with the results, quieter than my friends lexus now even the exhaust is quieter in the cabin. I await confirmation from another member before I post details.
  10. that thing is a pain in the ass I resorted to bending the edges of it over the fuel tank lip with some pliers to keep it in place. Seems to have held fine for a year
  11. Gen 7..good used buy or not?

    sounds like you have some stories
  12. Replaced all three wiper blades with new Valeo units. much better wiping than the bosch on there before and totally silent.
  13. Bug splatter

    y'all don't have forcefields?
  14. 1) someone dinged it with a trolley (or something) in Tesco, rear wing area 2) reversed it into the corner of the skip someone badly placed behind my garage today I cant have nice things
