Not done today but had a proper drive about locally to see how the lowered suspension faired. Overall it was pretty good, some parts of the drive seemed a bit bouncier and maybe other parts seemed a bit harsher but none of it so bad that I would swap it back. The only 2 things I have any concerns about is the mud flaps where I'm going to have to be a bit more careful what I drive over and the power steering is just a bit more noticeable when getting near full lock. No plans to change the wheels yet so the 16s will have to do.

Finally got round to colour coding the wing mirror covers, ordered a new drivers mirror as the previous owner put a manual one on instead of an electric one. New heater dials arrive today.ImageImage

There is 2 British Gas blue colours one 2010 and older and the other 2011 onwards if I remember correctly, the newer is a lighter shade so double check your using the rite one.

Ricksy1121, good to know for the future, the paint does match I think it's just the light making it look off. Test spraying onto some scrap paid off.

Off to fit my new heater dials now.
