    Although I will be taking out my front lights, I really like the clear lenses you have on yours.
    If I see it correctly, you still have an orange indicator bulb.
    You do know that they exist in silver that give an orange light.

    just spent 2nd Saturday, another coat of polish, trying to get to get the rear screen clean its got a sort of smokers film on the inside hard work but its coming off. stripped out the rear brakes and cleaned all free now, replaced the plugs one of the techs at work had the service reset tool, but now found the passengers seat is jammed fully up the motor tries to work but keeps jamming so out with the seat next week I think, the chrome bulbs are fitted to Nissan Qashqai front indicators so pop down to them if anybody wants, oh and the one thing I liked to know what's the mpg for the 2.8 the on board comp is saying 44 but I doubt that?

    Sometimes the seats jam because the original rubber seat bushes disintergrate and bits get stuck in the thread so if this happens you will need somenew bushes which It just so happens I can help you out on that, just clixk the link in my sig. ;):D

    My mpg is very low. But that's normal as I only do track miles.

    What do you do to lighten the steering I love driving it but it does feel heavy, not very pointy

    Hi mate. I get about 26 -35 mpg in Zelda. My computer reads litres/100km so I have to convert to mpg. Depends on if you are poodling about or cruising, or giving it some stick! I think it tells you how much juice you have left when the light comes on, in the handbook.

    Bonzo.

    Have the same beautiful color. I just noticed after the snow melted on the hood (bonnet) that the clear coat had started to come off in 2 or 3 very small places. I know that this starts to spread and it isn't long before the paint is affected. Is there any quick fix for this. I will probably have to get the bonnet redone completely but what can I do for right now on these fingernail size areas?

    when it was on the road the comp was saying average at 42 mpg (I don't think so) and when it got to around 90 miles to go I would go to work about 3 miles and when I got back in it again it would come up about 60 to go so not the accurate really, I think I will just keep it brimmed and just listen to the loud pedal:):)
