well its safe to say im due a update on all this bits and bobs have happened nothing major.
first thing was finaly got new tyres and got my alloys back on the car after using standard wheels for a while.


then decided to sort out the center console and door handles as they were all scratched and the center console seemed to be turning blue for some reason.





then got myself some wind deflectors.



then the problems started my spark plugs packed in so replaced them with NGK iridium plugs and also got a K&N replacement filter.

other day i washed the car and decided to go and for a nice drive so i took some pictures.









then tonight my engine light made a appearance and then buggered off again not sure what to make of it but lets just hope the car was just joking with me and nothings wrong.

you needed 1 rear disk? you should check for a stuck calliper, did you replace both rear discs? it's recommended that you do so it's not pulling all over the place.

Looks a tidy enough car, white centre console looks good.

the disks and pads were replaced all round and there were a couple of slider pins on the calipers that were stuck but got it sorted. needs new slider pins and the rubber boots but apparently you need new calipers to get the rubber boots and at £90 each they aint exactly cheap but car breaks fine.

Smart car for a first one; I always considered getting a EP2 (most of the looks of the EP3 without the insurance) but ended up holding on until I could run a EP3.

I can't tell too well from the photos, but is the white paint on the centre console bubbling a bit? I found on mine that the silver inserts on the door handles were horrendous for paint wearing off. Ended up spraying mine black as I got sick of having to get them resprayed silver laugh

If you ever consider upgrading to a EP3, I'd definitely recommend them thumbup

yea fked up the first time spraying it left it in the shed and went away to get more paint came back and my dad was taking the paint off with a stanley knife and just made a mess so when i resprayed it, it came out all horrible.

yea im thinking keep the EP2 for a few years then get a EP3 or maybe a DC2 depending on how insurance wants to be to me.

well the car is only insurance group 6 so im guessing that has somthing to do with it and possibly because i live in a low risk area im not 100% sure plus im 21 and i went with a bad insurance company im with insure the box so i have a box in my car tracking where i go time i drive and speed ect. it was £800 cheaper than the next quote and i think that was with Asda.

Fair enough matey, What's it like with the box installed? I've heard if you stray of 100 or so the insurance is immediately void, true?
