Yeah better than peppering the rear bumper with those crap looking sensors. Usually the camera sits under the plinth above the rear plate

Very slow progress.

Expected coilovers and an additional 100bhp at the very least by now.

Looks nice, keep seeing more of these in the roads lately, look well lowered, miss the Megane much?

More expensive mods for these things!

Miss the meg? Honestly no. It was an ace car but this has properly clicked with me already and the meg never did fully.
There's not a lot I want to change on this. but on the megane it was a weekly event.

Yeah I've seen the prices of some of the stuff for honda's not cheap eh.

That's pretty much what I expected you to say regarding the Megane, I'll keep an eye on the progress as it spills over the initial plans lol

Aircon regassed but compressor won't kick in. Balls.
Know a guy breaking a couple of fns for track cars so shouldn't be an expensive fix. Gas was bone dry so probably why it knackered the compressor.
Don't even use the ac but will get it fixed anyway for the sake of 150 quid or so. Never know when it'll come in useful.

Well the rain held off and got most of it done. Plates off to put my plain ones on tomorrow.

Wash, dry, meguiars paint cleaner, meguiars polish, ez car care glaze and fusso KOG. Bodywork and wheels alike. Wheels sealed with ez car care alloy sealant and meguiars tyre dressing stuff.

Do the glass tomorrow and fit the plates and new rear quarter stickers. Not perfect but a damn sight better than it was and I can see the blue flecks in the paint!

How much is a decent LSD FN2 worth with 60k miles or so? Am I right in thinking that only 2010 onwards and CW editions have the diffs?

Upwards of 6500 if you can find an lsd model. Champ white are guaranteed lsd but you won't get one for less than 8500 on those miles. Fn2 manufactured (not registered) from Apr 2010 will have lsd.

Or you could probably buy a wavetrac lsd and have that fitted for around £700.

I've always fancied one of these but they only have 4 seats don't they?
I have too many kids!
Seems like all the cars I like these days have 4 seats!

Same as any other car? 5 seats this. Never really pay much attention to back seats though. Seen plenty of these with kiddie seats in.

Cw would be a great purchase imo. Wouldn't lose any money if you paid half sensible money.

Good luck with the move matey
