No lol. Someone who used to be on here tried to tune the Lucas for me & got the max fuel stuck open, I don't think it even made its next MOT after I sold it...

New standard mount came but gonna save for a vibra one i think.

It did make its next mot as was put on a bosch pump but the last i saw of it was when the turbo went.

Your old engine mount was pretty knackered! Vibra one would be pretty harsh though? I'd stick with new OEM.

Good to hear it made another MOT. I wonder if it ever got to the 200k mark, what did you sell it on Jordan?

Vibra ones really that harder ride? Is there any other upgrade options out there?
Heard about using the 205 chocks and spacing the with washers but is this actually any better?

The only other upgrade I know of is the Baker BM ones. Not sure how they differ in harshness but I'm pretty sure they're cheaper. I've not heard of using a 205 one.
A new OEM mount would feel like an upgrade compared to what you had, I wouldn't have thought that had been in good condition for much, if any of your ownership.

After fitting that was a little surprised to still feel the knock so jacked the car up earlier to find I had snapped my p-bush :/ never seen this before but some how I managed it. As a temp bodge i've re-used an old wishbone that had a perished p bush and knackered ball joint, replaced the ball joint with the one from my car and bolted it all up. Feels like heaven to drive again!

Right, so the ph2 headlight conversion has been nothing short of a nightmare.started by parting of both ph3/2 headlights for there lenses and internals. After parting the ph2 i realised all the crome had pealed off the masks and they would need a respray.. easiest solution seemed to be respray them in audi silver [Image: 7a65537e3a2a0634a749d2cfff2579ec.jpg]
Was sprayed the next step was to clean the ph3 lenses and apply the tint film. Anyone who ever says this is easy desrves to be shot the original plan was to use the ph3 bodys but soon realised all the clips were dead so moved onto converting the ph2 to twin optic. Part of the bulb "shrowd" would have to be changed and to do so I had to savage the headlights with a saw and file to make it fit

Once that was done was a simple case of re asswmberling and sealing the lights up

As im sure most people are, I was to excited to get these on so had a fumble in the dark. Absolutley love the end result and really think they suit the car

Wait, I think I'm right in saying you've put clear fronts on ph2 headlights...

Yeah, you might want to change those, I tried it when I was feeling cheap and ended up with the worst headlights I've ever used - the reflector is TOTALLY different in the ph2 vs ph3 headlights. It makes them so bad it's bordering dangerous. The frosty front is what makes the beam pattern - in a ph3 headlight the beam pattern is created by the reflector in the back... It's like driving round with a poundland torch strapped to the front of your car.

The beam was a complete pain to set up but its alot better now! Comparing them they didnt look alot different but will see how i get on with them. They've ended up brighter than my ph3 but are pointed into oncoming traffic a lil atm which is a nightmare

Yeah, you'll also notice that the beam goes nowhere near where it should... Driving down any road without street lighting is disastrous.

I would personally change them if I were you, they're pretty dangerous!

Sooo...pointed at the floor and no discernable pattern!?

Also be horrific as you've bodge the bulb in. Im doing a video soon on all those plebs who cant fit a headlight bulb in correctly and result in blinding oncomers as the EXACT position of the bulb is fundemental to beam pattern.

Liking the carbon wing mirror caps, but you need to get some back to black or similar on the rest of the mirror, really lets it down IMO. Wink
