Afternoon folks, with the clocking ticking on for 4x years past my last 225 affair ... (A MINT ph1 Trophy 'MH05 CCF'...) A number of other marquees have followed until today's return to the eccentricities of French living... 2x Mk5 golf R32's..... An E61 535d.... A C63... A VW Amarok and now... A slightly rough 57' plate 225 cup. Before picking up the car, I'd already test driven and worked out that a bit of ££ is required to get this back to an acceptable standard... I will try my best not to make this ££££££ aka- 'wallet opener'. With the car being bogo standard, the following are my immediate areas of focus. - timing belt change (77K miles means this is overdue). Rentec Edinburgh doing the honours. - fog light smashed but a new item came with car - shreks ears... NOT my thing, Carbon dipped items to resolve - cover missing from keyless entry (near side) - wipers - blades all worn to excess - side light / number plate bulbs blown (LEDS to resolve) - exhaust blowing- perhaps KTec / milltek replacement - tracking (needed) Other than the above superficial items, not bad for a 9yr old car.. Drives well, handling is pin sharp. Great interior... HIDs ... And Brakes well. For the cash paid... It has potential Looking forward to seeing how I get on with this and improving with some subtle additions.
