Part number for the centre grill? Is it the centre lower one? Nice car by the way. Seems to be quite a few C's on here now and silver also


am i right in thinking you have the foglight grilles, just without foglights in?
i need a proper grille as my intercooler is side mounted!

up to you mate, havent got the part number, but Warren G ordered it for me, he will know!

i suppose you could mount a cold air feed in there, havent you got a cone filter though? if so wont really do anything..


Correct i have the fog light holes with no fogs as the fogs won't fit due to IC pipework. Even if i could just put the front of the fogs on that would be a little improvement. Yes it is ope filter but no cold air feed at the moment.


ah fair enough, try mesh like mine mate, it looks tidy that way, if you just have the foglight glass that could also work... up to you!

its for the SPA gauge - its a micro computer so stored maximum temperature, and pressure.
can change backlight colour.
and set up warning alrams if the temp gets too high or the pressure gets too low.

I alway thought it was best to have the oil coller with the ports on the top the way you have it you will loose a pint or so of oil when the stat opens

interesting point you make there, either way i would expect there to be oil in the cooler and pipework when the stat is off whichever way the ports are... i also have a remote filter head so always ensure i use about 5 litres (or thereabouts) which keept the level perfect... havent had any problems before...

thanks
