Heard that the ball joints are a nightmare. The cambelt looks a nightmare also. But I have done a few Clio 182 cambelts so it should be pretty straightforward. Plus I’m a mechanic so I never really shy away from any job to be honest. Will let you know how I get on with it all.
Need any advice then just ask. Always here to help.
So you must of jumped on it as soon as it got advertised. Looks great in oyster grey. Mine is in red. Needs loads doing to it. But should be all done by next month.

Thank you! Cambelt has been done thankfully. Although the auxiliary drivebelt hasn't been done and looks very worn and starting to make a bit of noise so booked in to be done in a few weeks time. Would normally do it myself but looks a of a job!

So a very small update, I found a bargain of a private plate on ebay a week ago and couldn't help myself. I know it isn't the greatest plate in the world but it was dirt cheap! Only small obstacle was the original plates for whatever reason had been put on with pop rivets by the looks of it, so out came the drill! I went for 3d gel plates, they are my personal favourite type of plate on a non German car.

















I have also finally fitted my centre silencer delete. 100% recommend it! No drone whatsoever but lovely noise when you hit the accelerator!
