Re: I Hope the Girlfriend doesnt read this but....
sounsd like u got a nice onecan onlt help with a couple points here, but sure there will bve plenty of others that will be able to help you wiht the rest:
1: yep it needs a new stat, just had mine done and pretty sure it wont do any damage, ull just use a little more petrol than usual
4. pretty common as well, this should cost about £40 ish to reset form any good indi, tho there is some debate wheather or not the airbag system is deactivated when the light is on, so best to get it looked at asap!!
5. if your code doesnt work, do a thread search as there are a few guys on here that can generate u a new code for your radio so u can get it up and runnng till you replace it
oh and get that bet changed asap as well, the interval for changing them is 3 years or 36k miles which ever is sooner, better safe than sorry
oh and finally enjoy it!!
