HI Si, welcome to the club :cheesy:

Thats a nice Monaco Blue you have there, can you post a picture of the interior as I think the rapier has black ash door trim, but the 2003 cars had silver trims - yours is both!

I'll get pics of interior up.

It originally had black ash trim - but I sold the car for a while to my mate's dad and he converted it to wood effect trim.

Now that I have the car back - I don't mind the wood.

Engine - removed plastic cover as they tend to vibrate through the injector wires. It's a HDi 90

This is the towbar - I'm going to sand it down and give it a fresh coat of black before fitting it 8)

The wood trim actually looks quite nice with the black - better than I imagined. You can get a wood effect ashtray too.. :cheesy:

Its also a fact* that all 406's must have a towbar - whether you use it or not...

Took a full Sunday afternoon to do 1 CV Joint on the Pug!!

Thanks to Biz for popping up to lend a hand it's sorted now.
The bottom balljoint point blank refused to come out the arm - so I had to go the strut out hub route.
Then the CV Joint refused to leave the shaft :evil:

Hey Ho - French engineering :wink:
