Nothing particularly amazing - just sorted an issue with the 5 today... Fuel pump relay wasn't connected properly! Went for a short drive and my friend took some photo's for me

New alloys fitted... Think they break it up a bit more. It's a very modern colour, and the wheels were a bit too modern and in your face I think, so going to try and tone it down a bit.

Next jobs are:

Fit front grille badge
Fit spoiler
Fit rear badges

I'd also like a new drivers side door (current one doesn't fit very well.. a new door was used when the car was painted, but it doesn't seem to fit very well.. maybe a patent part?) but that would mean painting it, and there are a few other bits I'd like to get painted, so think I'll wait and save a bit of cash and get it all done together

Olie, car looks so much better with the turbines on it, as you say you just need a few things to finish her off, those I would say are, grill badge, fogs, rear spoiler, rear tailgate badge.

With ref to the door how do you mean doesn't fit properly, they look good in the pics :) :D

Cheers James,

The door - it's hard to explain. I'll show you at ND (if you're coming?)

Nah, I'll stick with the C1J. Something I like about having the retro 1.4 turbo engine. C1J with EFI = win :D

I know how you feel Oliver if your going to have a retro car you need to really stick with the retro engine  :D  upgrades on that engine are fine aslong as it still retains the C1J :mrgreen:
