  1. I did it Hasan. I don't have the furniture clinic code as I sent them my headrest to colour match. The paint is fairly robust, but there are some light marks where it has worn off where my clumsy feet have caught them when getting in the car. If you call furniture clinic they should be able to supply it based on make/model though as a few of us have used them for our beige interiors.
  2. Pantera is definitely up there for me! I get what you're saying about impractical, but surely that's the whole point of a supercar!? You won't be driving it every day anyway, you'd want something big, plush and comfortable like a Roller or Bentley as your day to day car. If I won the Euromillions, I'd have a Pantera, Lamborghini Diablo, Porsche 911 (993) Turbo, Lotus Esprit, Bentley Continental GT Mulliner, and something a bit more subtle like an Alfa Giulia or a Merc C63.
  3. That's a late card fitted with a manual wonder. The early door cards had the switch set within the panel, whereas late cards have the switch in the pocket just behind the speaker grille. You can see a blank has been put in on that picture where it would have been.
  4. I've used Corrado graveyard direct through FB. Really well priced in comparison to some other joker who wanted Β£80 for a second hand throttle cable on there! I got a cable & front spoiler bar for about Β£50 delivered which I thought was really good. He supplied photos before I purchased too. Both items arrive well wrapped and swiftly so I guess it's luck of the draw.
  5. Should have asked that before buying! πŸ˜† Welcome to ownership anyway mate. As mentioned, the Wiki has a buyer's guide and although it's quite dated now, most things still stand. Parts are the difficult one as a lot of items are now obsolete. VW Heritage tend to have quite a few items and can order direct from VW classic parts which will save you cost on shipping if you went direct. Facebook CCGB page (very much worth membership) as well as here, and eBay are good sources of used parts and to research where to get things too.
  6. Wow! I was gonna say Β£2.5k. I wouldn't necessarily bother with the centre caps. It's very rare they become available in this fitment so it's certainly a seller's market and you'll likely have people biting your hand off anyway. It wouldn't make sense financially to do them as you'll probably still achieve the same price regardless.

    Get em banded too! They look absolutely superb with a lip. Timeless. πŸ‘
  8. Thanks all for responses btw. I did read that there are certain companies that can clean the ash out with various fluids etc but not seen much by way of evidence that it's actually very effective beyond the short term.
  9. Collected it and the warning is now off. Hope it stays off for at least 24 hours as I'm chopping it in for a Tourneo Custom tomorrow! Lol
  10. Nice one Martin, looks great! Bit of 1200 then 2000 grit sanding, then a good cut & polish and it'll stand up to even close scrutiny though. πŸ‘Œ
  11. No issues with EGR as far as I'm aware and they've not mentioned it, so assume it working correctly. Yeah it's a euro 6 so adblue as well. That's all good as I get a countdown when low and it won't start if empty.
  12. Hi all, does anyone know the intricacies of DPFs and can advise on the following?P I have a 2015 Pug 308 hdiBlue, and I recently had a 'engine fault - seek assistance' warning come up on the MFD. Not having a diagnostic system, I took it to the dealer who has said the EOLYS fluid needed topping up (Β£115+VAT) and also that the DPF needs replacing (Β£1100+VAT!!!!). Now the car has done 120k due to my 81 mile each way daily commute, and looking online it seems that 150k KM is pretty standard for them to top up with ash and need cleaning/replacing. The soot should have been burned off due to the length of time I spend on the motorway but that leaves the ash. The fact is that with the mileage, that price combined is probably 1/3 the value of the car which seems ludicrous to me. I've instructed them to top up the fluid but not replace the DPF. Now my question is, is it worth replacing with an aftermarket DPF (Are they reliable?), can it be effectively cleaned? Or are they spinning me a line to fleece me and it'll likely go on for a good while yet? I've actually been contemplating getting a transporter or similar recently, so if it'll last a good few miles then I can chop it in, but morally I don't like the thought of that if it could come back on and potentially leave someone stranded in short order.... Any help appreciated. Thanks all! πŸ‘
  13. Yeah the rear trim and C pillars will give you plenty of room. πŸ‘
  14. Yeah it's not difficult really, just need to be careful removing the pillar trims. It's back in but the sunroof is very stiff now. I can crank it back and forward by hand with a bit of effort as the mechanism is strong, but doubt the motor will be man enough. πŸ˜” May leave it for a little while to 'bed in' so the foam compresses and softens a little.....
