Got them from a Company on Ebay. Link below. Also thanks for the positive comments towards my VTR. It's just had two new driveshaft and seals fitted recently... runs like a dream, done loads to it. I also had it remapped so it's quick as f!

I had my bonnet and spoiler wrapped in hexis professional matt black vinyl a few weeks back. Courtesy of JDM Wrapping. Well pleased with the outcome.

Picture below was just after I cleaned it the weekend just gone (notice the water dripping on the grille, bumper and splitter lol). As you can't wash vinyl wrap with normal car shampoo which has wax in it, I used "Meguiar's Gold Class Car Wash & Meguiar's finishing towel", which they professionally recommend for vinyl wraps on cars.

So, last month I got my Saxo VTR back after it having a full engine rebuild; new inlet valves, new exhaust valves, new cambelt, new gaskets, new oil, spark plugs, leads, flushed out and a full service! It only went in for a routine cambelt change and an unfortunate mistake happened where all previous 8 valves got bent (as cambelt slipped 3 notches), lol!!! These are the photos the garage sent me, with a cool photo of some art work done on the Saxo while work was being carried out. Brand new engine now!

Update. Runs great! Still bedding in, etc, and no engine management light comes on anymore. Still need to put my new shocks on all round and sort the light knocking underneath when I turn wheel here and there (believe it's a rubber as i've had a 2 new driveshafts anyway)....

bet you're glad to have it back with a nice new engine! Did the garage sort it out for you at their cost ?

Looking great. have you fitted new arms recently by any chance (relating to the knocking). Only ask because I fitted two new arms from ebay about 3000 miles ago and have had to replace them (with better ones this time..) due to the balljoints wearing out. Not noticeable on the usual test of 6 O'Clock and 12 O'Clock position, but rather it was vertical play. You could push up on the wishbone and it would move up and down plenty!

Just mentioning it cause I was chasing all sorts of other theories as I assumed it couldn't be balljoints, since I had already done the wishbones.

Yeah they did as they admitted liability. And I know them well, so they wouldn't do me over so to speak. Knocking for me i believe is a rubber, but will sort it, or get them to sort it....

However, my engine management light flashed at me last week and came on. I plugged my thingy into it and it read "multiple misfire all all cylinders". Though the car runs great. Any ideas? Taking it back to the next week.

Could be from the garage doing a compression test or something like that where the car was cranked over with the coil pack / plugs removed. If the car is running fine and the light cleared away OK and is staying away, then I wouldn't worry about it.

It erased it via the thingy I pugged into it. It hasn't came back on yet, so fingers crossed. If it does they said bring it back to them.

My Saxo VTR had some cambelt adjustments and checks today. After all, it had that major engine rebuild last month and with that you have to check things are all 100% still. Engine is running excellent! Now itís booked in for new shocks all round and new arm links next month.
