So I’ve had my VXT since 2007 after two previous owners, it was on around 25k when I bought it (it was my first car at 22) since then it was my daily until three years ago, and I’ve loved it for all that time, trips to the alps, all around the uk (often loaded with climbing kit etc) and now it’s on 98k and apart from regular servicing endless abs sensor repairs and replacement and the odd sensor I’ve had no serious issues, it has been a car to use and it’s done this well.
so for the past couple of years I’ve been planning to get it resprayed but expenses such as moving house, wedding and a baby have postponed that, however I have now been put on gardening leave for my notice period between jobs so I have a 10 week window to get in it! This has made me realise that I should do everything I can think of under the clams before worrying about the respray.
on the to do list is:
- new rad
- new t7 heater
- Suspension refresh
- head refurb (valve stem seals)
- vxr turbo
- and no doubt endless bits and bobs I find on the way
