    Can you video the dash on a pull so we can see if it is abnormal? That should show any differences to normal.

    Jacking it up with the long-reach under the rear suspension mount/beam running across the middle of the car (so that I could stick a stand on either side so I could work under it). The new Schutz coating I'd had applied acted like a sheet, slipped away from the beam, and the whole car shifted forward. As soon as it'd shifted enough it slipped free and the car, unsupported, fell onto the raised saddle of the jack.

    The frustrating part is that the new coating was the cause of the problem in more ways than one since I only started to jack it up so I could re-seat the handbrake cable guides/seals which they hadn't put back right when they had finished.

    My first weekend with my 62k Cosmic Grey Premier EP3.

    I first replaced the Magnex back box on the exhaust, with an OEM one. Then the AEM V2 air intake was replaced with a standard airbox. The car was then washed, clay barred and waxed. New spark plugs , air filter, oil and oil filter followed. All this is down to me preferring a standard car and knowing some of the service tasks are up to date, even though service history is complete.

    Unfortunately the gearbox/airbox support bracket has been removed, I suspect to make room for the AEM's air filter, so the hunt is on for one of those!

    Next week i'm replacing front discs and pads, then looking into wheel refurb, decent tyres, 4wheel alignment and ultimately getting the underside rustproofed.

    Cheers

    I ordered a bigger bunch of parts from Tegiwa Imports today, the list goes:
    - red anodized wheel nuts
    - red anodized battery tie
    - red anodized engine bay bolt kit
    - RPB front brake discs
    - front strut brace
    - brake stopper

    FYI the "forum25" discount code still works

    I got the black wheel nuts off Tegiwa with the adaptor washers and don't like them so will sell soon,

    Also bought the battery tie down from them and fitting kit which you have to chop to fit.

    And tbh I got the engine bay kit and was not impressed, there is so much in the kit that I have no idea where they are supposed to go and some like the rocker cover and plug cover that do not fit.

    I wish you luck with them! I'm still using the RPB discs though and can't fault them.

    These are the nuts but they poke out way too far for my liking, maybe they would be more suited to an aftermarket wheel and not the OEM.

    Still gotta stick my new stickers on my centre caps hence why they are missing.

    Some people like it, when the wheel nuts stick out so far, personally I also do not. Indeed, having taken a look at the Tegiwa wheel nuts had me thinking the same, so I decided to go with the shortest Muteki closed wheel nuts. The handling mods speak for themselves, I am most curious about the brake stopper, but we'll see how the cosmetics turn out. With all the shiny new bits, I will repaint the rocker cover, and give the engine bay a wash. Hopefully none of the electronics will mind the pressure washer at low setting.
