    Nothing like seeing your car through a window. Let's look at this in the daylight, now that it's dry! What a cutie. Early facelift March headlights are interesting. Plastic lens as opposed to glass, a bit like first-face headlights with the light diffuser being in the lens rather than the...

    Action photo of me rushing into university after setting up camp for several weeks in Bristol's insane traffic. Eddie's painted his heat shield! Time to give my engine some love. It's been making diesel sounds since adding that oil seal additive, and even though the oil was changed when I got...

    Today I had a go with these chrome indicator bulbs. Here's how they look normally (ignore the dried wax, that'll disappear in the next photo): And then with the chrome bulbs installed. Damn, that does look good! However, the moment I tested the bulb, I realised that it's way way less bright...

    It won't be the rocker cover as I just changed that gasket. I mean, that was leaking too, but that was a different leak. The sump has maybe three nasty rust spots on it so I'm concerned it's coming out of the sump itself. Unless they're thick enough that that isn't going to happen? Apparently...

    Got that curb fitment once again. Already feeling a little tired of the steelies. I tried to find the oil leak, with a friend. Unfortunately it doesn't look like it's coming from the filter. It wasn't that tight though, so I tightened it as much as I could. The oil just seems to appear from...

    Slow updates again, sorry. This was a while back, fitment looked better with one wheel on a curb. We've always noticed that Eddie's tail lights weren't lined up right. Turns out mine aren't very much either! But his ones were actually letting in water now. So he added some sealant behind the...

    At least wait for me to write the text first! I just drove home in exceptional heavy rain on the motorway. That pipe isn't sucking air in, it's just guiding it to the filter, water won't be a problem.

    Yesterday, I got some good work done at Eddies. He's now got a jack and stands (and chocks that weren't in yet in this picture). I set out to fit an old mod from Cassie, but got distracted by the heat sheild at the front of the exhaust. It's been rattling for weeks and driving me crazy. It's...

    New MAF sensor in. No more engine warning light. Also revs up fast much more consistently. The ECU is doing some hardcore adjusting though. Kept stalling at first, stalled at every stop. Leaving it idling for a while, I noticed it figuring out how it's supposed to run. I reckon by tomorrow, or...

    I apologise for not posting for so long. I'm ill currently, university has started (and boy did it kick off hard). Plus it's been raining every single day for weeks. On top of all of that, I've been working on a different, non-car project. I've been taking photos here and there, so now I just...

    I like the two-tone gauge clusters. Looks pretty neat. You're probably the only one with that setup. Sent from my F8331 using Micra Sports Club mobile app

    When starting your engine, it's often best to check that your oil cap is fitted. Otherwise a small amount of oil may be deposited upon your bonnet, windscreen, alternator and exhaust manifold. Brought out the soap to get some tree sap off. Very nice. Wanted to do some waxing but ran out of...

    You see all of those scratches in my boot panel? Yeah, you don't, because I went over them with touch up paint. Something that was in the boot really left a nasty mark, which is now just a slightly off-colour line. Time to fix this boot handle once and for all. The two left bolts weren't bad...

    Today I collected my GTi wheels, bonnet hinges, and also the wheel spacers. I bought a Simoniz seat/carpet cleaner. It's really good. Starting to really like Simoniz as a brand. I didn't even vacuum the boot, it seems that all dust and foliage just gets caught up in the brush, which opens up...

    Best Photos of Cassie 9th of October, 2014. I bought Cassie, my first ever car. Some time in October, 2014. Feels like a lifetime ago. Me and an old friend at college about to hit the gym, him seeing me (a diehard biker at the time) in a car for the first time. 4th of June, 2015. A friend and...
