here we go, my shopping list of the last 2 months:

-aircon pipes replaced (free of charge)
-undertray (stupid road kill)
-bolts for ac compressor renewed
-oil pipe and clips for intercooler replaced
-new instrument cluster (because i flucked with it too much)

to do:
-get coolant pipes replaced
-remap

quite possibly:
-get wheel bearings looked at, ford reckon there is a noise, yet i cant hear it

i havnt washed my car for about 7 months now

Two new headlight bulbs this evening (always buy in pairs and replace both and keep the other as a spare)

Cleaned all the inside out on Sunday... would have done the outside, but Peugeot done that for me FOC last week, along with all the work too
