    DF057 fault.

    Am i right in thinking its the lambda sensor? Also, the baffles are gone in the centre silencer, could this cause the code to pop up on the fault reader? Dont wanna have to fork out for a new lambda, if its the centre box causing it, as i will be getting a new exhaust. Cheers.

    Cooksports fitted, now tyres rubbing on arch liners.

    So i had my Cooksports fitted yesterday, along with new dampers. Took it for a spin and noticed the front tyres rubbing on the arch liners, mainly on full lock left and right. Got home and had a look and the tyres are catching on this bit (first pic in step 2, bit that bulges out)...
