    Vacuumed the mats and discovered a new uncharted lake in the rear passenger side foot well. I've already contacted the Ordinance Survey people and the local environment agency to let them know of this new geological feature.

    That's almost to be expected of a 1m Leon! Easy fix if you buy the underlay and tape from SERE on this forum. Takes about 3 hours, I did mine 2 months ago, if you search my profile I wrote the job up as best I could

    Yeah I've had it happen before which was down to the pollen filter. I'll check it out your guide, cheers.

    New master cylinder, slave and clutch DMF was fine and it's cheap enough for me to get done if it ever needs it.
    Clutch was very worn, can't feel the pedal it is so light.
    Had the dogbone mount fitted, very slight cabin vibration but you can't half feel the difference.

    Had car mot'd today and it passed fine. No probs with the hids fitted and I have the quad rear side lights and that also got through.
    Thought I would have probs as the mot regs are really tough now apparently...

    Resolved the power issue and had a nicer rolling road result. Now putting out 245BHP instead of 205 so very happy.
