I have just ordered one of the AGM batteries recommended by Roy (thanks Roy!) - my car is already setup for the polarity.

I did think of getting a main brand (Bosch, Hella...) "normal" battery, which of course is cheaper, but then some places couldn't tell me if it was in stock unless I ordered, and others more honestly said "not in stock". Others again did have it in stock, but then wanted ££ for delivery, and also some surcharge to be reimbursed if one returned the old one ...

all very complicated and cumbersome.

https://www.batterymegastore.co.uk/ however has the Optima 'yellow top' YTS 2.7 AGM batteri at £139, with free next day delivery, in  stock.

That was a lot easier, and already well worth the extra expense :-)

460 CCA should be good :-)

Hi all, long time no speak. Trying to get hold of the lower front bumper rubber. Simon has them but 2 are listed 14024 and 14024a! I phoned them but the gent couldn't understand me and my German is kaput. Anyone know what the difference is? They look the same in the photo. My metal mounting strip is in good nick. Thanks for any help.

Yes, I still own the car and work is still progressing, be it at a snails pace as despite being semi retired I just cant seem to find any time these days! package arrived from Simons consisting of the front bumper rubber and 2 x end caps. The rubber is easily long enough so I had to trim a couple of cm off each end. (I mounted it centrally on the backing plate first so as to make sure I didnt trim too much off in one go to avoid it being too short). This is the third time I have "finished" the front bumper but every time I thought I had finished I realised I didnt like the outcome. This I suppose is why everything takes me so long. It is still not perfect but it will have to do! I was looking back at photos of the nose and it really has had a lot of time spent on it!
