Auto-fold mirror kit installation. Pretty simple after watching their YT video. Only fiddly bit was pulling the smaller plug from door control as the release clip faces down. Used an inspection mirror and smaller screwdriver to push and the plug pulled right out. Wrapped all the plugs with stick-backed foam so they don't add to the rattles.

Today I drove it home from work, and in about 45 minutes I'll be driving it back to work.
For a 6 hour shift and then holiday until the 14th. Absolutely glorious.
I can smell the freedom already.

Dropped it off with Mark and the team at Abbey. Only a week til I have my own version of Party Mode/Hammer Time.

I'd seen some pictures from Thruxton in the week and a Peugeot 309 Thundersaloon had caught my eye (memories of the Daily Express race day at Brands Hatch in my younger days!) so I was excited to see it being worked on at Abbey when I arrived, 500+bhp in a car weighing less than a tonne sounds like a blast!

Are you having variable boost levels mapped in then?

No, just the one. It'll be party mode all the time I know it's not crazy power, but ~240-250whp should make it plenty fast enough!
