    Right so worked out it is the right hand sensor that is dead where is best to get a new one from please?

    Also think my tyre pressure sensors are dead as the light randomly comes on and goes off how much are the sensors as think they are probably all about to die

    Having looked at how to add bluetooth and an aux socket I think cost wise the best best will be a dynavin as don't like how you have to change source to trick the system to let you use the bluetooth with the dice system. Has anyone got experience of these units at all are they any good. Also can you retain the cd changer with the dynavin unit. I don't think I would use it but would like to reatin it for a complete oem look.

    Also think I have found a guy local in Nuneaton to check her over that has been recommended to me which is good.

    Hopefully can get the check over done soon and the pdc and tyre pressure and thermostat sorted. Then a good detail if nothing else is wrong. Then get it into my bodyshop to sort a chip by the boot and make sure the rest of the car is solid bodywork wise. Then save for a dynavin I think with that done I will have my perfect car.

    Anything else I should know about these motors to watch out for.

    cheers

    Matt

    Right have found an indy in Nuneaton near me who has been recommended and seemed great on the phone. The car is going in Saturday morning for a full check over. I have asked him to check the thermostat, the pdc sensor and the tpms to see if he can get the light to stop randomly coming on. He said he will give it a thorough check over and diagnostics as well as the things I have mentioned. The best bit is he is doing it for free as he hopes that any work now and in the future I will put through him. So hopefully know nasty shocks on Saturday. Once the all clear is given I will be taking the car to my bodyshop for a smart repair on rear where a chip hasn't been treated and has started to rust. I will also ask them to check the arches and make sure that they are ok in the bits that I can't see. Then a good detail and tracking and in the new year a dynavin unit. I honestly think once that is all done other than a wheel refurb or possibly getting hold of some mv1's she will be perfect and just the way I want her. I am very happy with the car so far and hope it continues for a long time.
