ok few more bits done!
How did I forget my awesome new tyres! I had some Sailun (not a brand I was familiar with!) tyres on it when I purchased her. It wasn't like they were really old, worn ordesperately needed replacing...... In case you haven't guessed already I am a sucker for new and shiny! I was originally going to go for the Toyo T1 proxies as I used to run those on my S14a, but after reading reviews and looking at forums I went for the Michelin Pilot Sport 4's all round. I am running 18 inch rays so cant do those lovely MPS4S bad boys, but figured 'non super' ones were really decent. I paid about £550 in total for the 4 fitted with alignment sorted etc....which I thought wasn't too bad price wise. They have been on for a couple of months and I love them, really noticed the grip difference.
All sprayed! I had a lot of stone chips and a small chunk missing from the front drivers side by the reflector, so felt it really needed doing. I know stone chips are inevitable... I have to drive the damn thing! But figure a tidy up was warranted!
Before - chunk! That was there when I bought the car so knew I would have to get it sorted.
Before - lovely stone chips section (oh and a cobweb.. apparently I had a house guest!)
After - I picked her up on Friday. I also had the front gill bits painted in the same colour as the rest of her. she looks so tidy now! Really chuffed The only down side is, that it really now highlights the bonnet stone chips; so will maybe look at getting that done at a later date.
oh... I know what some of you are thinking looking at my arches.....wheel spacers... After seeing some zeds in the flesh I think the aesthetics are really bought up with the wheels poking out a wee bit...! So adding that to the to do list...
Post P3/Major Service Plus!
Maybe it was because I didn't have her for 4/5 days while she was having the work done (my courtesy car was a kia picanto. Not knocking the kia... it just wasn't the zed!) She feels fan-bloomin-tastic to drive! Well she did before but now.. gears and acceleration just feel ace!
