    storm lighter plug?

    just the suspension for the time being Liam...but even thats going to have to wait till i can afford what i want...maybe a rear brace....but i reckon i can get that made for 1/4 of the cost ;)
    be handy to get the dimensions of one....

    Changing to m seats in non m??
    De-tangoing??
    ??

    I'm just curious..... as my sig says, I haven't changed anything with Zippy....

    its open to interpretation snoops.

    the odd stereo change or minor tweak inho is ok.

    i have a couple of those only.

    i havent made any other changes to the car.

    some people might say even a brake pad change to non oem makes it modded.

    not in my book.

    if i sold mine, it would be advertised as standard with low mileage.

    well that was a learning curve......after having a stick rear caliper...iv now just finished...and got the worst back ache iv ever had....
    i decided to do both sides....for 60 quid each you might as well..my brake guys found the OEM ones with the M/// logo on so chuffed with that ...also new springs and sliders all greased up lovely.....not driven her yet....but found the rear anti roll bar had popped off on the left hand side so thats now back on :-o

    Thought so they are non ///M droplinks so you won't need them. The realoem diagram is a universal pic showing both ///M and non ///M setups. ;)
