nice updates bud - shame the fob didnt work... do you still have one that does work? I seem to recall reading that you can add extra fobs if you have one that works...

EXCELLENT daily driver!! I desperately wanted to be a long-distance driver when I was younger.. I've always been amazed by you guys... used to work in freight forwarding and watching the reversing skills always impressed me... :thumbup:

Offending part

New one in place

Also after much farking about, I got the front bumper off

So that I could remove my front grill in preperation for fitting an M3 mesh. Also replaced the damaged fog light

Good progress there, carbon fibre badges are way cooler than the originals!

I would suggest new number plates and surrounds, my vr6 had tatty number plates when I bought it, new plates and surrounds made such a difference. Yours aren't bad but would look cooler with surrounds IMO. Also i'm not too keen on the chrome edge on the kidney grills. Apart from that looks tidy.

Also I read you've always been into Japanese cars, my only jap car was my first one - Yaris T Sport, awesome nippy wee first car, loved mine but wouldn't get one again, too slow now i'm not a teenager anymore haha
