£440 but that was heavily discounted, other dealers where quoting 600+

Nice one on the intercooler, the problem you now have is everything under the bonnet needs to look as good if not better than it.

Thanks mate, ironically I have two intercoolers, my blobeye one and what I thought was another one but was in actual fact a hawkeye one which is slightly smaller, I recommend you get a grille to cover the intercooler to keep it that way.

Write up is great, keep up the good work mate.
