more work tonight, time to get back to those shiny new shocks for some unfinished business.

Here’s what’s left of the off side top mount bearing, noice.

New Febi top mount kits go on on both sides, as well as some new bumpstops.

I also fitted some Eibach camber bolts, that I will try to properly set tomorrow or next week when they’ll let me use the alignment ramp. The aim is to set the camber back to the factory setting after dropping the car on the Sportlines. I do primarily motorway miles, not interested in lap times for now.

Happy turd, next tyres, washer pump and a proper detail.

thanks for the info adam, will hopefully get in on the gemo ramp on saturday, this time using a 172 preset instead of the non sport last time..
The K9K 724 100 block will probably accept a TL4 from a 106 dCi Megane or Clio iircMy best real life consumption figure, back when I was commuting in and out of London in late 2019, was 62.47mpg. 725miles out of almost 53L fill up. This was done averaging 60/65mph on motorways and very easy on the throttle round town.
Best one I got during this trip is 62, but I was never hanging about, as I said, 70mph minimum, sometimes faster.
It’s the gearing that hurts it, if only a 6 speed could fit the old style block.. I reckon the 100 block could accept the later mk3 6speed box maybe ??
