    No probs, it’s a quick fix, and cheap, think it’s big bucks to upgrade/replace it, if you get round to sorting your key fob out give us a shout, I’d like to get mine sorted really, it bugs me lol.

    thats the place i rang, £564 for dpf gutting, egr removal and a map, said not to bother removing the cat as it easier with the emissions. might go with de cat anyway if its the mot thats the concern. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Sorry mate, completely missed this, can see the ride height much better in that pic, looks like a sensible height to me, without scraping the ground, spot on.

    Not done this yet, as been away, but going to get my mate sort it and to order them through his work, then hopefully see a bit of an mpg increase! 30 mpg sat at 60 or 70mph is a bit shite lol

    That’s good to hear, I always presumed it was bilsteins or nothing, these seem like a great cheaper alternative, are they as low as they go?

    Finally managed to cHeck my engine temperature, Just landed back from a 40 minute drive, 90% motorway rest A roads. Starting temp - 65 10 minutes later averaging about 50mph - 75 Next 25 minutes or so I’m sat at 70mph, temp goes as follows 78 80 77 78 76 73 So peaked at 80, then slowly tailed off Sat at 50mph next - 72 Then 30mph - 70, finished on 67. Am I best replacing both stats? And am I best using genuine items? Cheers Quote

    Just had a quick look the m badges are only a few quid, full set of centre caps and badges below https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123734582470?ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F710-53481-19255-0%2F1%3Fff3%3D2%26pub%3D5575376664%26toolid%3D10001%26campid%3D5338268676%26customid%3DEAIaIQobChMIv56hxJKE5AIVwuF3Ch1htAEtEAQYAiABEgJVn_D_BwE%26lgeo%3D1%26item%3D123734582470%26srcrot%3D710-53481-19255-0%26rvr_id%3D2076275221351%26rvr_ts%3D93c4685016c0ac3d90d251bbfff43887&ul_noapp=true Back to the t5, did you put the coilovers on or where they already on it? Is the ride ok on them, not to crashy? From what I’ve read they seem to get decent reviews for the money, big saving over the bilsteins that’s for sure, is that as low as they go? cheers
