Malcolm, we need to check if they'll fit mine as mine is a very late model and they're different at the front..

Can I PM you my VIM Number to check?

Yesterday was quite a day :-D It started off with a very brief meet-up with Northern Mike at an M4 Service area to deliver a TCT throttle body for Juliso and then off to deepest Somerset to see Dad and amongst many other needed tasks, get his garden in order... It was looking a bit jungly...

Time was always very much at a premium all day, which was why I flew off so quickly Mike and why I planned only a quick visit to you Sticky! I has ti be back in MK at 6PM at the very latest and not leaving Frome until 3:15 was pushing it a bit...

As it happened, the combination of Activa, clear roads and a good run between Chippenham and the A34 on the M4 saw me back in MK at 5:45 :-D

Good effort and not one speed limit exceeded anywhere... Except for the odd accidental excursions north of 80mph on the M4...

A good day... :-D I so love my Activa :-D

Was a top job meeting up after all this time...it still took me buying two Activa's and a V6 to convince you I was serious :)

Glad you like the set up here and the Car. Ebay this winter has been of quite a benefit for a few bits :)

Cheers so much for the help on the problems I have with it, it was a relief to hear you list the methods/tricks to resolve them for the MOT/V5 process shortly to come.
I am so pleased with the condition in particular, thanks for helping to banish "the nagging" worry the inexperienced have about their decisions and judgments.

With those areas addressed I should have it on the road very soon so I will have to bring it along to a couple of shows.....if for nothing else to steal your badge :)

Going to do the "visit" to the dealers tomorrow for a collection of seals etc for the two jobs we talked about. Sphere seals and ? what ones will I need for the ram job ? (just in case I have to take it off totally)

Your lucky I did not mug you for your tail badge :), ...open door mate, any time

I shall make a point of making sure it's still there after my next visit Sticky :lol: :lol: :lol:

In fact I'm very much looking forward to the next visit!

There was once a mob on the 'bay doing repros of that badge but it was some while back now. Might be worth a search though...

of course you can hunny, although S/C showed them as to only fit C1 in an all families search, and did not come up as to fit C1 MK2,,

just post the last 8 digits on here or is there some sort of security risk in doing this,

even if they do not fit your car i can pm. you your cars birth certificate,

aren't you registered on S/C then hun??????

:shock: :roll: #-o :-D :wink:

i have sent you a pm. with your cars birth certificate,

but i cant find for sure if the fog light kit i have will fit your car,

the only C1's that show under C1 are C1 and C1(B4),

and your seems to come under C1 and not the (B4)

here is a screen shot of what comes up on a search with the part No. for the kit i have, so i would assume the shape of the C1 is the style this kit fits,
does your look like in the screen shot

No, sadly not Malcolm :( That's the model before mine, the one before DRLs were introduced on them...

So, sadly not good for mine :(

the other way to double check would be aim that part No. at your local stealer and ask if they fit your car,

unless RichardW can confirm as i sent him a pm. asking him, as he seems to know his way round SC better than i
