wouldnt bother mate, your not really going to gain anything on the revo map. save the money for something else, the revo map is a good map, just dont turn it up too much, id say get a tip and jetex cone filter with the money

if its a basic service then do it yourself, oil, filters should cost no more than £60 in bits,

A Poxy Tesco truck just took off my passenger side wing mirror!!!! utterly destroyed :/ he would not admit it either and I had no witnesses...I did get his get number and he just called me to say he will post a cheque for half the cost (yea ok) what shall I do? I dont want to bump up my insurance by making a claim does anyone know where I could get a new mirror unit from-used.?

 I had a look on flea bay mate and there is 1 red LCR breaking so have mailed him...fingers crossed he will reply with good news....but all the wires are hanging out and I am not sure if it is going to require a garage to fix it? thing is if I go through insurers he wont admit liability so it will be a Parus caeruleus for tat claim meaning it comes from my policy? am gutted had the car less than a day [6]

there is absolutely no point claiming for a door mirror. that would be moronic beyond all reason. most peoples excess is a couple of hundred quid where as a new mirror even painted and fitted is hardly going to be more than that...


just remove the broken one and put this new one on and job done!

dont forget the lcr mirrors should be folded, so if your hoing the scrappers get the bit of the harness and then solder it in place

sure you can find an online guide mate couln't imagine it'd be too hard. probably a case of remove the cover on the inside and unscrew but that's only a guess.


still happy days !
