Gave the car a full detail on the outside today, clay bar ect.. took around 4 hours all up, very happy with how it turned out got rid of pretty much all the swirl marks previous owner had left on the bonnet..

Before:



After: marks on the top left are just smudge marks

^^ Thanks mate.

Bad news - the person i was ment to be getting my VX boot garnish off (from ebay) apparently had a problem with it so i got my money refunded, therefore wont be getting the garnish untill i find another :(

Good news is that i now have that money to spend on other things :D, have been susing a few mace products and might order some soon. also brought some LED parker globes :D.

The Mace CAI is very well worth it, the throttle response is improved, its not sluggish as it used to be. Worth the money IMO
Cheers for the advice mate, yeh i think the cold air intake will be first on the list with plenum spacer, then maybe throttle body and manifold insulator down the track :)
