    Mod 6): Trip to COMAND.co.uk to add a couple of options to my car via STAR, sort out audio issues & to clear the SRS error I had caused when facelifting the dash.

    Added:
    -Tank content (Gallons)
    -Temp display on all screens
    -Digital speedo with temp display
    -Netherlands Setting*


    *This strangely appeared by itself when I reconnected the battery a week before.

    Wasnt able to add auto/folding mirrors however as my car is too old :(

    Facelift dash transformation finally complete. Missing upper dash trim found (thanks Gurpz!):

    Mod 15) Headlight Restoration. Ever since I got the car the plastic lenses on have been yellow and scratched.

    By using Megirues Headlight Restoration kit I have returned them back to original shininess: (time taken around 1 hour)
