  number plate removal -
indeed I have removed the rubbish UK spec number plate and all the gunk that was left. Left to do are


The plate was stuck on with sticky pads and I pondered for a while how to remove the blighter. Couldn't really lever it off as that would wreak the paintwork. Couldn't pull the plate off cause, well I just couldn't. Then John had a brilliant almost offhand idea. Use Dental floss!

Indeed 3 or 4 metres of dental floss later I had cheesewired the old plate off. Took about 15 minutes. Just wrap the ends round a pair of screwdrivers (saved cutting my fingers off lol) and saw at the plate. Came off in one piece very quickly. Bumper started like



ended up like this after plate removal



and after some cleaning with white spirit ended up with this (note bag and my feet lol)



Now just to get the new plate and holder fitted and hey presto, nice front end .

  OEM Lambda (O2) Sensor fitted -
indeed, plugged it in and went for a wee jaunt. Boring cruising along the motor way cause that's when the Lambda does its thing. Well it survived the first journey ok. No error codes created. Woo hoo

  new boost pipes fitted -
always had a wee nick in the turbo to intercooler pipe but never bothered changing the pipes. Even bought some pipes through a group buy and never did anything about fitting them. Well the ever increasing whistling from the engine bay under boost was enough to convice me it was time for a change.

so from this

old engine bay

to this

new look engine bay

No more whistling and boost seems stronger too. Doesn't take as long to come on song and holds the boost better too. Lovely

  sensor ordered -
hopefully arrive Monday, get it fitted and hassle ends. Next on list, ignition leads and maybe cap / rota arm. Need that lottery win soon.
 
  sigh O2 sensor no worky -
will need to buy an OEM unit as the generic units are not being liked by the ecu. Will also post up some pics of the droplink change, the boost hose change and maybe even some pics of the new wheels.

Also I picked up some front undertrays last night, for once somebody selling stuff that actually has the items ready for collection. Good bloke, didn't even take amrket value on them.
