I am getting a new water pump also. Forgot about that. £98 for that too. And i have the centre caps. I plan to do them i just havent had the time. I dont want to spray over the badge so it means i need to remove it clean them all up, respray and refit, if i dont want to refit the badge i have small holes to fill.

Ongoing project so things will get done eventually

ok i fitted all of the above parts today, the only pain in the ***** was doing the gearbox oil! why dont they make a small compartment from inside the car to get to the refill plug! anywho i created this and manually pumped the oil in, it took about 30-45 minutes to do 2 litres and worked well :)

at first drive of the car power steering was very stiff at points and the belt squeeked on each turn so a little tighten and that was it, anyone looking to do this i recommend doing it yourself, i done more than what is included in a typical service and it took me just under 2 hours and cost £156.44.

less of the stealers and DIY!

list of things to do are:

water pump, new radiator, new Battery, new discs and pads, wheel spacers (when i get them), rear lights (when i get a replacement), centre caps, tidy up calipers, and maybe some stretch tyres

i spent another 3 hours on the car today. fitted the spacers that eventually came. the annoying thing is that i bought 30mm spacers and i received 2 15mm spacers! so there will be no pictures of how much they are out until i speak to the company and see if theres a mistake. i also got my centre caps done and the calipers :) so heres some pictures:
