New guy here. Bought a 159 SW a couple of days ago ...
Yesterday, wrapped the gear knob in new leather. Also, wrapped the steering wheel plastic plate in that same leather (it was pretty damaged color-wise) ...
I have my knob in front of me on my desk
Tidying it up a bit and cleaning it. I bought a new silver cap so the knob should look a little better.
End of last week I had the brake discs and pads I had bought earlier, replaced. The weather being crap I let the garage who refurbished my wheels (at the same time) change them over.
Saturday I changed the oil, filter and air filter. What a pig removing the lower engine cover. A right mix of bolts and self tappers all more or less seized. One of them towards the back was impossible to remove so I worked around it.
That air filter though, how low down in the car is that? I read on here to be careful in slightly deep water, so take note if you are not already aware. The filter sits just above the lower engine cover
Noticed the frame below the engine a tad rusty, so I waxoyled it. Replaced nearside fog-light and added LED sidelights.
I absolutely adore this car and love the 5 cylinder 2.4. I still need to change the power steering fluid, fix the glow plug error and have the inside valeted. It'll be perfect then though
I wanted this when I bought my GT but the right one for the right price never appeared. Glad I got there in the end. A definite all time favourite car.
