    Looking forward to August. The X should be at its best by then... spent 8 days in the body shop a few weeks ago and goes back in 2 weeks time for a couple of days to re-spray the rear bumper. I may even have the capacitive screen update on my JagDroid by then if Ben can fit me in.

    Totally agree on the nice looking pair, all polished up bit though

    You see Jim, it stuck a chord with me because, when I was younger I always dreamt of one day owning the ultimate collection:

    1) A luxury car
    2) A fast car
    3) A 4x4 for off roading

    Rich kind of as items 1+2 in one with the Super V8; then he also has that big sparkling Discovery too!

    He must look out to his drive and think 'Oh yes!'

    It'll soon be here Mark

    Hope Ben comes through for you as I'm really looking forward to seeing one of these Jagdroids.

    Blah, blah, blah.

    I suppose you'll be saying I need crampons and an Ice axe to summit during the winter.

    Another week in the Rat race is over, although I'm thoroughly enjoying it, time to break the spanners out

    The remaining 16 wheel nuts turned up as expected, so I changed them and now have 20 brand new normal nuts fitted. Seems the guys at Nationwide Autocentre were not kidding when they changed my tyres, I had to use both 22, 23 and in 1 case a 24mm socket to get them off. All the new used a snug fit 22mm, torqued to the correct 145nm.

    That done and with 2+ hours light left in the day I set about fitting the Nextbase Duo HD dashcam, something I had planned for the morning but doing this evening, allows me the time to go get more upgrade items in the morning.

    I'd purchased the hardwiring kit with the cam, it comes with all you need and simple instructions.

    Ran the cable from the fitted point under the headlining to the N/S A pillar, down to the fuse compartment behind the glove box. Used the front aux sockets 15A fuse location to piggyback the DC. Loads of slack left so coiled, taped and secured behind the A pillar trim. Tested it came on with the ignition, confirmed, I refitted all trim, job done inside 90 minutes, including time for tea and choccy hob nobs.

    Another satisfying evenings fettling
