    Dunno whether to get same bulbs as you or use the cheap Chinese ones I paid £3 for a pair... they look the same, but I'm worried about small incendiary fires.

    Put the cheap ones in, I paid double the price as mine were already in the UK I bet.

    So non cleaning related update, decided with the help of @Legojon I've got a list of bits to do so I keep on top of potential failures as the car is getting on a little bit now. Just hit 45k miles and thankfully cambelt and water pump were done just over a year ago so that's handy.

    This time it's the following...

    Ordered...
    6L Oil 5w30 edge
    Mann oil filter
    Mann fuel filter
    NKG Platinum Spark plugs
    Pollen filter

    Booking in...
    Oil pickup pipe replacement
    Sump cleanout
    Oil change
    Injector cleaning
    New injector seals and baskets
    Full service

    Also ordered some new wax to show off at the national meet thanks to @Legojon for that as well haha yoink!

    Your welcome. Did you go for the active pollen filter or the passive? Lol.

    Bargain... think I paid £18 for it. But agree with Seat now and only do it every other year. I changed it last time cause it was the passive one and I bought the active. But the one I took out looked brand new after just a year.

    I felt a tingle... the wife looked at me like what the hell you ordered. When I got excited that it had a puck in the top she looked even more unimpressed haha
