    Default My brake upgrade news

    hey all

    bad news hit me as soon as i started off? ecu/managment light was on
    phoned lee at ipswich vx stealer, he said pop straing over and he'd have a look. (they great like that) no appoinment need (other customers gave me funny looks tho lol.

    guess what it was!!!!! suprise suprise EGR valve!!1 he reset and i was on my way, and left him ordering me a new one in.

    go to saab, and the boys there are great.

    left to come home, ECU light on again

    it can stay on now till they get valve in!!!

    here are some pics already, they had couple of coats of filler primer, just waiting for them to dry before i key back down and give them some more coats. (want smooth finish)

    By the way, which colour?

    i was thinking arden vxr blue?
    or Red?
    or normal brake blue?

    i have a black car, red is too common now? just fancy somthing different?so ardan blue im thinking?

    Here is my first 2 pix, ill keep adding more as i go along
