    I had problems with my SC’s battery going flat and thought the same, so disconnected them but following week battery flat again, was told to switch stereo off prior to parking up as amp will still be live and drawing a current if you leave it on and switch ignition off... not had a flat battery since

    SC430 modification and maintenance

    My next biggest job on my SC is a complete respray but will be staying with same colour “black” maybe with bit of a sparkle tho in it as just normal black is costing me 4K so might as well spend a bit more for something different which sticks out slightly from the norm too much peeheeing around to do a colour change ie door shuts under bonnet and boot.... your silver in my opinion is the best colour, i have that colour on my LS agree with you about covering plastic dash and other bits of trim 👍🏻...hmmmm next job to do after respray lol
  4. Was i..... and cost of leather seat base with intrigated heater element would of been £1350 plus vat had it not of been covered by extended warranty i had...on the LS600hL. And most likely other LSs and other models the leather and heater element are intrigated together and aren’t separate hence the price,,,, and indeed ended up being a £10-20 relay that was at fault

    Re the battery drainage, i had similar problem and has been suggested to switch stereo off PRIOR to parking up as amp stays on and drains battery,..... never had a flat battery since and cars left for a week or two, whilst i am away working,

    Little bit of trim wrapping today, still got dash n centre console bits to do, but work n family commitments are hindering me (damned pesky children 😂) Ps will have to strip and re wrap passenger side as carbon effect is going opposite direction to other side and my OCD is killing me 😆
  15. I have the luxury of having a whisper quiet V8 LS600hL and the roar of a 3rd cat deleted custom stainless steel exhaust on my V8 SC430 neighbours never hear me coming or going in the LS but wake the whole village up in the SC 😂
