    I got round to fitting new H7 bulbs with a control unit to stop a fault popping up, and stop beam flickering.. and it works perfectly! The upgrade is huge compared to the Osram Nightbreakers I had on.

    I tried to adjust my passenger side headlight... and none of the screws do anything. Doh... Another job on the list to fix.

    So I finally got the car washed in time for a GTI meet.. I tagged along with a friend and there's some nice rolling shots and pictures:



    In other news, I've got a really good deal on used lower control arms with newish (2000 miles) Super pro anti lift kit bushes, with camber bushes too. I have a few days off work after this set of shifts so I'll hopefully be getting these on.
    I'm still looking into the headlight screw adjuster issue, I think I may have to get the bumper off again and get the headlight off.

    So I had my budget for this car this month set to £250... I have gone way over :whistle:

    I spoke to Matthew @ Trackslag and didn't even know they do a Downpipe > OEM adapter, so I've gone and spent more on that! New downpipe + centre pipe should be here mid next week!

    Your order on Trackslag is complete.

    You have chosen the PayPal method.

    Your order will be sent very soon.




    My new lower control arms with anti lift kit + camber bushes arrived today, so I'll be opening that up on Monday as I don't fancy sweeping up my mess twice!



    I also got a great deal on Michelin PS4S tyres, if you have an F1 auto centre near you, they're coming up cheap + you can claim Michelin cashback, if you have 19s then it's £50 for 2 or £100 for 4 tyres:
    https://www.f1autocentres.co.uk/terms-and-conditions/michelin-spring-2019-offer

    My total for 2 front tyres came to £226.50 (including cashback) so was an amazing deal as they're usually around £150-160 a tyre.


    Lots happening to the car next week, pictures will follow as I go along.

    So 2 weeks ago I said before Autumn I want to get these done, well.. I made some calls and ended up with:
    - Used alloy control arms with the Superpro Anti Lift Kit, and Powerflex camber bushes for a good price
    - PS4S on the fronts to be fitted at 2pm today
    - Ordered the VIS internals from VIS Motorsport
    - Ordered and received my Trackslag 3.5" (which is fu**ing HUGE).

    When I was trying to take my old wishbones off, some of the bolts had seized... I had to try to put the car back together as much as I could, but some bolts wouldn't line up. I clunked and banged my way to the end of my road where there is a garage. They ended up having trouble with the wishbones too, it took them 2 full days to get the old ones off and new ones in (they ended up cross threading one hole getting the bolt out, so had to re-thread it). They're on now, I'll go for a fast drive shortly.

    Holes not lining up:

    Finally on the car:

    Beefy bloody exhaust!

    I also got the gas strut bonnet kit from Andrey from the group buy post, it came to about £40 delivered https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php?threads/mk2-mk3-leon-gas-bonnet-struts.452513/:
