Another few small touches
« on: November 24, 2014, 08:50:41 am »
So my Abarth dust caps arrived along with the branded Abarth seat belt pads so here are some photos. The quality of both these items is actually surpisingly good for about £6-£8 for each. Also received my BMC air filter regeneration kit as upon inspection of the filter seen it has never been cleaned in the 3 years or 30k miles the car has done.

After a good cleaning of the filter and car, which is murder at this time of the year to do! :( the car sounds so much better, the exhaust actually lets off a pop when revved hard now and certainly sounds more grunty than before :D with a nice, louder sound of the air being sucked in... this is going to damage my mpg which I have been trying to keep at 35+  :whistle:

    Yeah Lex, but they have been refurbed by Arnold Clark. Initially I thought they were standard from the factory but was told they had been redone, looking at pictures I think they have been sprayed silver, its lighter than the original titanium colour.

    The wheels are actually being replaced this week with a brand new set of esseesse wheels as these ones are buckled and were sold to me in this condition. Will get a picture up of the new wheels to see the difference next week but I do like the colour and they do clean brilliantly.
