    Nah no option mate.

    The one time I try to skimp a bit on money and put a secondhand part in, it bites me in the ass:tearsofjoy:

    I can earn the money back no bother but it's the inconvenience and the not knowing what's next that becomes a bit of a bind.

    I'll keep throwing money at it until I'm happy. Love the car so no problem.

    That's good to know - couldn't help but think you were smashing the Auto Trader website on Friday for a nice Mk4...

    It does look god without the bumper doesn't it? Tempted to retrofit the plate somehow and leave it without for a few days lol

    Apologies for the condenser mate, I got stitched by the ebay seller so I wouldn't know:worried: So did you buy new at the end? IIRC the price for an original one was close to £300! Hopefully you managed to get one much cheaper than that?

    not sure I'd get on a trackday circuit looking like that!!

    No blame attached to you Yiannis. These things happen.
    Went for a new Renault one as it was only £200. Hope it does the trick
