    “Let me give you youngsters a present. Five mantras to carry with you through your lives. These are mine:

    Number one, all men are equal - therefore no one can ever be your genuine superior.

    Number two, your future is as bright as you make it.

    Number three, change is a constant of life, so you must never ever lose your wisdom.

    Number four, if you want to live a full and complete human life, you have to be free.

    And number five, Love is the answer. Love is the answer. ” - Rik Mayall

    That's a good price as it also includes the wiring harness

    That said, the clips on the plastic aren't so good if you ever need to take it out

    Feelin like a boss . Fitted a new stereo- no dramas, swapped not one but TWO bulbs over , changed the spark plugs. Cleaned a nice pool of oil out of one before I could remove it, whole other thing that, something about a crack in the gasket cover? Should probably get it sorted once and for all. Fitted a new coil pack. The old one had to be hammer and chiseled out, sod's law a bolt head shears. So chopped the corner off and did the same to the new one Clarkson style. One of the other bolts snapped in half lol, so it's held on by 2 but I have every confidence in them Noticed the front bumper may drop off on the drivers side due to rust, so had to put some duct tape in the car in case it drops off en route haha. Keep it's heart beating a little while longer.
    Appreciate all the help, no doubt you'll see this thread at some point in the future
