It's a little more now 11,100 :) the cam belt is fine and it will be 13 quid diy, the pump and pulleys will stay until the next belt change.

Well that went by quick!

Now she has 16600 miles, and it's boring... did the 12,000 service and other than the washer bottle filler tube (between the inner wing and bottle) cracking that has been it.

I will live with boring though.

Seasons greetings to you and yours have a great 2014!

Post by CGATCX25GTITURBO »

Nothing much to report... :)

just washed and polished it again.

Changed the pressure reg and anti sink spheres as new ones turned up cheap.. they came off by hand! :)
Lost the near side fog lamp bezel-trim if anyone has one in this colour.

The CX got a quick wag over too

I have to ask, Neil...how many tens of thousands did that paint cost? Not something I am usually a fan of...but goodness it looks good on the CX....

less than one.... less than 10k that is, a recent quote for the paint was £1600 a litre.
