  1. Brilliant! Thanks OldRed Well, the sunstrip doesn't come down any further than it would do if the sun visors were down - I did it to this effect mainly because my hands free kit is on my sun visor and a bit of a pain attempting to turn it around every time I move it up and down... Solid Colour sunstrip yes, not transparent. I do agree with you though, I only ever get my car MOT'd at Toyota via my cousin and generally they are pretty thorough - they make sure the car is safe, but wouldn't fail me for having a, air freshener hanging in the window The chameleon Tint went a long time ago :( it looked great but it was pulled off before last years MOT... I really need to update my build thread and profile picture -.- so much has changed!
  2. Bonjour! I recently installed a sunstrip on the outside of my windscreen, and I read somewhere that any wipers passing over this area can fail my MOT... Asked my buddy who is an MOT tester and he said the same - Question is, he told me that I cant run anything other than the stock size wipers...but he wasn't 100% sure... So, how would I go about this? Anyone else done this and gone through an MOT? Thanks!
  3. So, I thought id fixed it! But apparently not... All the usual spots like drain tubes and rear grommets in the boot lip have been checked and all good. Ive even fit a rubber strip around the inner of the sunroof to improve the seal. The only possible thing i can think of is that the rubber on the top outside seal of the sunroof where it meets the glass (top face) is lifting in the corners. Would this cause enough water ingress to spring a relatively noticeable leak? And would it cause me any problems to seal around it? I appreciate that there's probably something somewhere on the forum, But all I can find is sunroof drains and standard stuff... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Happy 2 Anniversary skittletastic!

  6. Happy Birthday skittletastic!

  7. I vaguley remember, was the Fabia yellow? My car history isnt great! 95 Fiat Punto 1.2, 98 Renault Clio 1.2, 51 Plate 1.4 Polo 6n2, 51 plate Seat Leon 1.6... All 'great' cars
  8. Not today but yesterday.... Had a new front drivers side caliper fitted apparently the old one wanted to fuse itself together and cause the disk to get incredibly hot! £140 later.....
  9. Your thinking of 'alloygators' mar - I enquired with sextons but there was a lengthy wait before they could get me in to fit them. Went to a place just past Winchester in the end. Looked great on my wheels, and very thick. They get seated under the tyre but unfortunately as I had aftermarket alloys they didn't seat properly and so I ended up with air leaks. Will be fine on stock alloys. Once curbed you simply shave down the gator again to get it looking nice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Glad to hear that I'm not alone in the 'hard to replace' mindset! I've always had base model cars and wanted the more powerful model, but cost was always an issue, But I'm happy with my 140. So far it's been reliable and I'm hoping it will be for the years to come contemplated getting another, maybe an older model, but unfortunately don't have the space to keep it anywhere!

  11. On my walk to work this morning, my timehop reminded me that I picked up my good, reliable friend Butterz 2 years ago to this day! 2 years later and 20,000 miles travelled together, still love it as much as the first viewing Just wanted to know how long every one else has owned there's for? Was it bought from new, second hand, and what state to get it back to where it is now?! This was the day I picked him up! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Surely itll come with a silencer bung of some sort to quieten it down? If not ive got one spare for a 3 inch exit i think Mine is pretty loud but with the bung in it softens it enough for the cold starts then you can just pop it out at the weekends for the full whack!
