I will be Changing the security bolts on the 75 soon (again a no.12 key), so they will be available soon if anyone wants them.
Fitted a set of new shiny bolt covers to the wheel nuts (hairpin wheels), looks so much better now - amazing how small details make such a difference!
Whilst moving the car on the drive noticed the outside temperature display read -30, did i read somewhere this is normal and will rectify itself after a period of time?
I think that your last paragraph means you have not connected the sensor up that is behind the bumper. Not sure but think I read it somewhere.

The temperature display corrected itself the second time I drove the car after refitting the bumper so I guess it just needed time to calibrate.

Well, finally got round to changing the off side top mount and bearing. The bump stop washer was missing causing damage to the top mount rubber and a dent in my bonnet when I hit a pot hole as mentioned earlier.

Compressed the spring, released the drop link, dropped the strut down, released the top nut, swapped out the top mount sans bearing and re built the whole lot in place. All fairly straight forward.
Boy was that shock strut a PITA to push back up into the top mount! When there new, struts push themselves open, when aged they pull themselves shut!!!! The little gits!!!

Just got the other side to do now, can’t wait!!!!! can’t be having odd bearings now can we!!

Real walnut interior. New 18” 11 spokes with Rainsport 5 rubber, Pioneer AVH-Z9200DAB double din Wi Fi phone integration. Retrofitted twin front horns. 160 re-map. Revotec fan. Silicone intercooler hoses and ‘O ring’ replacement. Top hose thermostat. New walnut and smokestone steering wheel with cruise upgrade. Brembo Brakes. Ceramic coated rear Exhaust. L/engine mount, Hydramount, Bosch MAF. Focal Access Drivers and Focal Amp.

A full service on a diesel, wrestled with a powerflex bush, it finally gave in and found a new home in a teardrop mount, and a cruise control retrofit.
Lest we forget..
