I spent approx 5 hours doing this, but mostly I was also cleaning up the mess from when I'd stripped the rear subframe

Why would you want to do something via a cable?

its a PASS!

very happy with that, rear tyre slightly worn on outside and oil leak but no excessive.

the oil leak is just some sitting on the undertray from when I did the timing chain, I shouldve cleaned up it to save an advisory.

The Bluetooth connection fits into the same slot as the aux so some things I have are so old they don't have Bluetooth connectivity so need a wire

Plus it looks nice :ROFLMAO:

You could fit a factory bluetooth module possibly.
Those work well with modern phones, so should be able to do music via bluetooth.

The module that looks like this in the pic below.
This one is phone only, but there are phone/bluetooth and phone/bluetooth/voice control models.

I've got one of them, but no wiring
Plus it's very bulky compared to the half a small match box if the bt unit I've fitted

If you ever decide to go the factory bluetooth, or voice command route you’ll only need to get one piece of loom.

It clips out the way under the fascia.

Randomly browsing through UP Garage in Japan (for those who don't know it's supposedly stand for "Used Parts" Garage and apparently stock mostly high quality and hardly used second hand parts (I'm guessing mostly JDM stuff).
Guess what I found the other day - a set of NOS Eibach lowering springs for estates for only USD70. Although shipping is 5 times the price... Can't believe anyone wants to soup up a mondeo in Japan...
I can. I mean why not?

i should have added in the earlier post why anyone would buy an estate and lower it... sort of defeats the purpose, doesn't it?
imho, that thing makes awful noise and not going anywhere fast with the hammer down.
i was led to believe st220 was a decent car!

That vid sounds like whoever was driving was keeping the car at between 5500-6500rpm a lot of the time.
That engine would get very very hot at that rpm when going so slowly.

I changed my headlights from being auto height adjusting to manual adjusting.
This was because there was a fault somewhere in one of the headlight position sensors, so it was easiest to just change to manual.

I also added two spare loom runs into the engine bay for use in future projects.

Cables ready for pulling through the bulkhead.

Spare loom runs coiled in the cabin ready for storing behind the glovebox.
