  2. Finally got the correct an ELM327 cable to use ddt4all to get rid of the “error prog” due to different options in the previous car on the new cluster ..all thanks to Charlie Howard :smile:

    So got the RS 265 speedo cluster fitted to my RS 250. Was simply for the white needle over the original one so I can see how fast I am going lol

    Nice to have the mph digital display and changed tpms to psi instead of bar :smile:

    Took ages to find a cluster with lower mileage than my car but eventually found one

  11. Im not a big fan of cleaning my car tbh. The interior I clean as I go so it always looks imaculate. The exterior I could leave for months.
     
  12. Well, I cleaned the exterior today. Took about 40 minutes. Needs to look pretty for its full service tomorrow + air con.
     
  13. Had its service yesterday. Air con topped up and no leaks. Had plugs, filters, oil changed.

    My pads are 50% and 70% so I'll have them changed for its next MOT in December. Will take the oppurtunity to buy better pads. They recommened yellow backs.

    Tyres have 4mm and 6mm left

    Custom Shift Knob done. Well mark 1. It's a bit bigger than I thought I ordered but with the short shift it doesn't feel too bad.

  24. Some temporary pads to get me back on the commute. I'll fit the track pads before the next outing. Your ferodo recommendation will be the winning formula

  26. Got it out of the garage to let it warm up and and give it a coat of wax. :hearteyes: NSR Caliper was seized last time I drove it in September so will do that and rear pads in March before I tax it in April. Never replaced a caliper or bled brakes before though :triumph:
