    Why cant Vaux keep things simple, a few 18mm bolts would keep things attatched... lol

    Oh and one of the vaux jack failed at one point too, cracked the side skirt slighlty when the car decided to lean one way and all the weight rested on it...


    Its payday and bonus time so i'm not too fussed, but £305 is a joke...

    When I did mine, I never used any torx bits... I don't think I own any either, std socket set, spring clamps, wd40, mole grips, allen key and a hammer is all you need.
