    Sourced the main issue for my intermittent heavy steering... After having pzeros put on and 4 wheel tracking done... The car still felt heavy sometimes and a notchiness to it's steering.

    Fearing the worst about a new rack or pump .. national tyres bloke said the UJ at the bottom of the column was rusted and notchy... I cracked out the wd40 and drowned it in it turning left to right fully lock.... And now my car feels amazing!!!

    Drop links being done at weekend and then in for it's MOT

    Just had a tire plugged as it had a slow puncture....tire thinks it's DJ Khaled because I found another one, and the thing that was in it accidentally flew out this morning... there went the pressure .. tire flat in an hour.. so i jacked the car up called around and found a place that does the plugging... but had to wait until 16:00 as they were booked up... waited until 15:00, used my emergency pump inflated the tire to 20 psi... went of to Asda and put the tire at max pressure... than drove down the garage to have it sorted... 2 plugs and the tire is back to holding pressure yeah beats buying a new one... as i have already ordered a pair for the rear that are matching the fronts of course.

    Fitted a gearstick bush, not sure yet not a night and day improvement and a little stiff and there's no way any of the will wear any time soon. Will reset the cable tomorrow as neutral to first and 2 to 1 is now stiff and awkward. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/REPAIR-KI...0/264296345675

    Sorted out multiple rear bulb faults, it was just a question of removing the bulbs, giving all the connections a good clean/scrape and reassembling.
    Happy days.

    Altered the mapping for on sports so its more relaxed and not as responsive so the full power is easier to control which the rear wheels squealing around some roundabouts will testify to. Also reset the gear cables which cured the notchy shifts, and found play in the turret where it pivots. So worked out which way the stick was pulling it and set it tight against it so there would be no play when you move it left to change into 1st 2nd or reverse. So a new turret is on the card then or one of those repair jobs you see on eBay for it. Still not %100 on the new bush as it makes the gearstick quite stiff to use now compared to before and it was a good enough change from just changing the 3 engine mounts.
