Cheers Steve, it'll happen one day.

We've been together just over 6 years now so I'll tell her there's no rush! 10 sounds like a nice round number!

Well, took the car in yesterday to have the door replaced and the front bumper resprayed, the paint was really thin when I bought it and so what the hell. God I miss the comfort already, having to use SWMBO Polo this week is killing me, It's been years since I drove a manual over any distance and my left leg aches like there's no tomorrow :roll:

So after dropping the car off at 9am yesterday, and seeing the guys wandering out about 20 minutes later with the old door already off the car, was a bit of a shock :shock: but hey, they know what they're doing :!:

I'm looking forward to getting her back at the weekend, after Oz (thats the guy doing to work) has given me the car back, were are going to take his dad for a ride in the C6, apparently his dad has never seen one, so we are going to make the most of it.

Ah, Jim, believe me it's no fun, rattling. Down the motorway and then getting blown across the lanes because there's no weight in the car, it was good to drive a manual again, but my god,give me mine back PLEASE :roll:

I'll take some pictures tomorrow for the column of the new look, after she's had her 'nose job'


Got to say that riding around in comfort out way's the cost of driving the Polo.... :roll: :-D :-D :-D

As usually happens I had a couple of days off last week and the weather was to say the least Poo... so No pictures as yet because now she needs a wash. As the weather was so poor I decided to settle down and re-install the Lexia after it threw a fit whilst trying to diagnose BlackBeard's C5.

Just as I was about to set to I remembered that I'd been sent a copy of Diagbox so decided to install that instead. I down loaded the video instruction to another computer and then sat and followed the instructions, first attempt and Hey Presto...... unbelievable !! worked first time.

I've run in on the C6 and I've got a couple of issues, Steering Wheel Angle Sensor, Cabin Humidity Sensor and a Tyre Pressure Sensor and an ignition ECU that won't comunicate, other than that everything appears to be OK.

So, I'm hoping to get that lot sorted over the next couple of months. The only other thing is that the new door sounds hollow when you shut it compared to the door on the other side, I need to investigate that and maybe look at some sound proofing, there's also a little rattle coming from the door so I suspect something has worked loose, It works so there's no urgency.

If anybody wants a copy of Diagbox let me know and I'll have some with me at the X Rally.
