Right so as you may have seen from my other thread had a bit of a 'mare but front Tein street basis coilovers are now on (rears will be done when I get a chance)

Will adjust them when I find my spanners, once they are all done it is having a full 4 wheel alignment. Nearly at 900 miles now so not far off a trip to rotary motion and then let the beeping commence :D

Also discovered a "feature" today that if you turn the rear heated screen on it makes the radio signal go terrible...

There's an RF filter box in the back to stop that interference.
Sounds like yours isn't working (they can die) so a call to BigPete might be in order.

My BMW does that. For me it's because the earth strap breaks between the screen and the main body. There's a total of 4 of them, and they're £20/ea :shock:

Finally ticked over 1000 miles today :D So off for a trip to rotary motion on thursday for oil change and hopefully sort the airbag light issue.

When it stops raining the rear coilovers will be fitted and they will all need adjusting as the front needs to go a bit lower so I assume the back will as well... then time for a 4 wheel alignment to make sure im not wrecking my tyres, which are awesome btw been really really wet last few days (even for Wales!) and the grip is still amazing had a nice blast home through the country lanes in the dark tonight!

Then once all that is sorted the decat and exhaust will be fitted as it is definitely too quiet then all I have to do is fit the RR coils and hopefully leave it alone for a while :shock:

I meant leaving it alone mechanically, driving wise it will get plenty of use ;)

The exhaust turned up today, i`m guessing I need a gasket for between the centre pipe and the backbox?

I really think it's worthwhile to get a new fitting kit from your local exhaust shop for the sake of a few notes. You will have trouble free fitting 8) . One of My spring bolts snapped when taking of the stock exhaust so it was great peace of mind putting on the new gaskets etc in that the job would be done perfectly by yourself :thumright:

I already bought a fitting kit with all the front gaskets for fitting the decat but at the time didn't have a catback, but got this for £100 so couldn't resist, so just need the back one.
