Nice to see you painted the sun visors, I was debating on wether to or to get them covered. Going to try paint and see how long it lasts

[mention]Papa Bear [/mention] yeah the sunvisors are actually holding up ok so far but I think the pull down handles will scratch easily. Time will tell

It's on the 'to do' list @Papa Bear :D
The reason is asked you round was simple :D I've been on 12.5 hour Nightshifts 17.30 - 06.00. 12 days on, 2 days off, since 20th Jan, and still have six weeks to go. It's been a bit of a nightmare, as I don't actually have the time to do much myself :cry:
I'm in bed for 06.30, and get up about 2.00pm, showered and dressed, Coffee read the news, potter about for an hour or so, and then I'm almost ready to set off again :cry: :cry:

Once I'm back on my normal day-shift, and not having to do every other weekend it'll be full steam ahead, :lol: and I'll either look at removing and painting, or trying the covers route, as I have been impressed with those I've seen advertised (retro trims) on here.

@deany123 will try painting the grab handles, if it doesn’t work, may swap them for genuine black but don’t know how well the colour will match

Got entire clutch assembly replaced at dealership. Here (in South Africa) that would cost 1250UKP. Fortunately I have an extended warranty so they paid the first 900UKP. First repair I've had done in 5 and a half years. Warranty just paid for itself, and then some! :D

New tyre day for me as the front tyres had badly worn on the inside edge, tracking was well out so now that's been sorted too. Nice to have a steering wheel that's dead centre again

PTC heater install for me today!

Managed to pick up a PTC heater (rev E) wiring and fuse yesterday for the rather modest sum of £15, result!

Image

It’s not the easiest of things to install, took 3 hours, a bit of cursing and a little bit of skin!

Testing with VCDS, all working, lots of hot air coming out the vents, test mode doesn’t seem to run the heater at full power, it got significantly hotter when I stopped the test and let it run!

Image
Still have an error code that I can’t remove, bummer Image

Image
And the cables are nice and cool, no heating up of the cables or connections.

Bring on the cold and frosty mornings!
