    Paint colour

    Thanks for digging this out very much appreciated. For interest do you have a pic of the code under the bonnet? Keen to see if it's the same. Thanks again. Andy

    John that sounds ideal. What branch of euro car parts was it? Was the scanner mobile enough so they could scan the car outside?

    Paint colour

    Thanks for your comments. The car is a 2003 in navy blue so finding a second hand bonnet the correct colour seems unlikely. Only the bonnet has been painted, i guess its easly damaged if knocked when removed. The match is noticeable enough that I need to sort something, it's annoying me every time I look at the car. In relation to graphics I would most definitely be interested in wraping it with something. I've had a Google and can't find many examples to copy off (artistic is not my string point). Anyone have any suggestions/examples of what's been done on other cars? Thanks again

    Paint colour

    Hi, After my recent westfield purchase i have to say I'm over the moon with the car, it's as much fun as I ever expected. Only issue is the bonnet, it is a slightly different shade of blue. The previous owner said he didnt know why but after spending a lot of time looking and washing the car the bonnet has been painted and it's not the best job, not to mention it's the wrong shade. Going forward I need to do something with it. I've been to a couple of local painters who are not keen on painting it as they are concerned I won't be happy with the colour match as I don't want to blow it in to the other panels. I've looked at wrapping the bonnet but again colour match is an issue. Any ideas on how I could find an accurate paint code, is there a code stamped on the car? Is there any where I can buy the right colour bonnet? I have tried living with it ( to be fair it's not miles away) but it annoying me to say the least. Appreciate any advice. Thanks Andy

    Throttle Bodies

    Cheers Chris, mines a 1.8 silver top and I have a print out of 140bhp. Ideally if I can get another 30bhp out of it I will be very happy. Will have a shop around, ideally I didn't want to spend much more than 1k.

    Throttle Bodies

    Chris, I've been told by the previous owner it's MBE. Does this mean I can fit the bodies and remap using existing fuel pump, ecu, etc.?
