Yesterday I changed the engine oil and filter which gave me a good opportunity to have a look around the underneath of the front of the car, unfortunately I found the n/s outer cv boot is losing its grease as its all over the inside of the wheel and tomorrow it's going to Lowndes garage for its mot.
It could have only just happened as two weeks ago the car was cleaned for the Cleveleys show and everything was fine then :( :(

Picked up a new pollen filter today and some serrated flange nuts for the front control arms which I could see were really corroded when I had the cv joint replaced on Monday.
The pollen filter has to be one of the easiest jobs on the TT, the flange nuts I think will be another story when I come to replace them.

Decided finally to order some new Bosch 550cc injectors and adapters which arrived a few days ago while I was away. Cars all booked in with Rick at Unicorn to have them installed and mapped in on the 25th :D :D :D

Since I got the TT in July 2015 the near side indicator repeater has been loose in the front wing, which was annoying whenever I cleaned the car, so today I finally got round to replacing it. Now it's all good, just another small job that can be ticked off the list ;) ;)
