Some work done

Some money spent in the last few weeks.

Wasn't happy with the condition of the 17" Teledials but not easy to find sets. After a bit of searching I found a set that were straight but needed a refurb - finished in light shadow chrome so not as per original but really happy with the finish - fitted a new set of FK452's as well. Got a deal at £600 all in.

I'd noticed a faint knock when on right hand lock and suspected an inner CV joint, as this is beyond my capabilities I booked it in to the Simplyalfas in Stourbridge, they confirmed my thinking but I also asked them to give the car a full check and draw up a list of what they felt was needed.

I had already bought a set of slightly lower Eibach springs and rear shocks so wanted new front shocks as well.

Eventual list ran out to being:

Inner CV joint
Fitting Eibach springs
Fitting rear shocks
Supply and fit of Koni front shocks
Supply and fit Brembo front discs and pads
Supply and fit front anti roll bar drop links
Supply and fit front anti roll bar (bushes aren't available so no choice but whole new bar)
Supply and fit new rear bump stops
Supply and fit new front shock boots

Grand total of £1,409 invested ( invested makes it easier to justify than cost) but now mechanically 100%

Drives fantastically now and nice to know it has been given a thorough look over and sorted
