    To be honest mate, it's going to take me a lot of time researching and doing mock ups and making decisions with Mrs M. It might just fall into place that I have a good look around your car during the Christmas meet up. Always better in the flesh I agree!

    Thanks Sean.

    Yes mate. Basically there isn't a problem with the cat in the manifold. The fueling on the previous shite map was so all over the place that it seemed the problem was maybe the cat. Seriously, I when I saw the graph I was amazed the car was running anything even close to ok. Now, after having proper diagnostics done, it was just the map. The fueling was so bad it was "just" triggering the emissions sensor. Which makes sense of us having the codes cleared and getting a couple of months of running before the lights came back.

    Andy explained it in great detail bless him, I only understood half of it but it all seemed right with the experience we've had.

    VERY pleased.

    Ah ok, good stuff. Well at least you didn't have to fork out more money for a cat/manifold then. More money towards other goodies :wink:

    Exactly mate. Money that was for the interior can go back to actually being used for the interior!

    Excellent news Mes, very happy that you got to the bottom of things. Clean bill of health is a massive thing with any car, so totally understand your joy at that! Love the fact that you needed a beer-free run, just to make sure :wink:

    Thanks mate. Yep, super pleased. Getting the thumbs up for everything being ok was the real result of the day.

    And yeah, must have been getting on for 20kg of beer in the back. Definitely felt a difference!

    Hi folks.

    Car is still being bloody awesome all the time and I'm loving it as much as ever.

    Mrs M has a good stash of cash burning a hole in her pocket at the moment, which is only getting bigger thanks to her getting a new job with an EPIC wage rise. So maybe... just maybe, there might be some more nice things happening soon. She's even started to mention spoilers... :smiley: Yeah right. I'll believe it if I see it.

    Anyway, here's a recent photo (shite quality as usual...) from Boxing day:

    Good to see you're still around mes. Sprint spoiler or nothing for me. Oh and a supercharger :french:

    I *hope* so. It's her car mate so she makes the decisions and certainly she spends the money. Well... mostly! :smiley:

    All good thanks fella. Hope you and the family are well. Photo is ok, just that it's from a phone so it's fuzzy and grainy! :wink:

    Thanks Peter. Sprint spoiler only mate, so subtle but I really do think it accentuates the rear of the car so well without standing out too much.

    Impossible to leave Sean. Love this place too much.

    Yep, Sprint spoiler is the ONLY option in my opinion. As for the charger, she could do that with the funds she has now. My chances of persuading her are probably very slim though. Who knows...
