    Most of my 'car' related spend is based on keeping the 3.2 on the road and as only just got it replacing the parts that for peace of mind need replacing or changing....

    Brake pads and discs if needed
    Auto box full fluid change
    Timing belt and service fluids change

    Then the 'wants'.....

    heated jets
    travel assistant (if I can ****** find one)
    SMD dash conversion
    colour code the black 'skirt'

    *edit - the irmscher carbon pillar inserts. I know they are love/hate but I like the look of them.

    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default

    Well it goes in for it's MOT on wednesday so it'll get whatever it needs for that. Then I have a set of 314's and 292's to fit so that'll get done

    Over the next few months I plan to get

    A sports clutch (the current one can't handle the power)
    Eibach pro-shocks (to go with the springs I have)
    An SMD conversion (as soon as I can)
    Irmscher side skirts
    An irmscher handbrake handle
    Possibly a set of Irmscher wheels, still undecided
    Window tints
    Some fettling of the exhaust

    And after that i'm not too sure

    I know the stuff you're on about, but is it as simple as just winding the windows down and applying or more than that?

    My main aims are to keep mine on the road, MOT due mid march so if theres a lot wrong i may be looking to change. Cars pushing 96k now so really starting to question if its worth any outlay but will get sod all for it if i sell so we shall see. Might just find a decent deisel signum.

    First jobs should be
    - auto box service
    - timing chain replaced and balancer shafts if needed
    - droplinks, bushes, rollbars etc as needed
    - find and sort my coolant leak
    - whatever else the MOT chucks at me.

    Like to do's
    - full or half leather
    - xp rear skirt and side skirts
    - irmy delta 19's

    my list is actually never ending...
