Just took it for a short drive, the coilovers aren’t as bad as I thought they’d be to be fair, a touch firmer than the teins but not horrendous, it is lower though as the bumper scrapes the kerb backing it into the drive something it didn’t do with the teins, not messing about adjusting up them though

Kind of tempted to stick it on eBay for a grand and see what happens!

Back to the skoda, bass amp fitted using the piggyback fuse holder method I described in the previous page, rear view camera up and running without static (thank god as i for the life of me can’t reverse this car!) the feed from the reverse light was causing the screen to go fuzzy when the engine was running, fed it from the head unit reverse cable instead and all good

bargain of the day though from the local car boot, a Toyota branded Thule aero bar roof rack with roof rail clamping feet, went straight on with no messing…..


an absolute steal at £5!

As a further aside to this car, my wife’s Touareg, as expected, failed it’s MOT today needing a fair bit of work doing, 2 tyres, rear pads, rear suspension arms, it’s got an oil leak and using a lot of oil, the airbag light is also on, probably about £700 worth of parts and labour



She’s agreed to call it quits and use the skoda for the time and I’ll use the R53 until she sees a 4x4 she likes, I’ll put the Touareg on eBay as spares or repairs and get what I can for it, had it 2 1/2 years and the only expense we’ve really had was a spring for the last MOT and a couple of tyres so can’t complain really given I only paid £2k for it
