Recently had gearbox issues, with the input shaft crapped out, meaning its cutting into the new clutch. To get the box recond is going to be about £700 + labour costs so given that and what ive spent on it recently ive actually decided not to continue with this anymore, so yesterday i bought a new (to me) car :shock:

Undecided what to do with the leon right now. Plan is to put it back to standard and make money off the parts and sell the car or break the complete thing, which i dont really want to do.

New car is a 2007 E90 330D M sport, Moves very well and got an average of 47MPG coming into work today. Ill get pics on the weekend after a clean and post full information and plans. I did just found out though that they can be mapped to 280-300BHP on standard clutch :shock:

iam putting it back to a good spec standard and selling off some of the extras i put on it. I.e. R32 konigs will be sold and ill put back in the electric black leathers in. This is a rare model with sunroof and double din centre console.

Leon will be up for sale sometime late novemeber, gives me enough time to swap over some of the parts. Might leave the coilovers and milltek on, not sure on that one yet though.

Been doing a little work on the Leon recently prepping it for sale.

Removed all the stealth edition decals, Put standard front and rear calipers on and painted them hammerite red along with new Pagid discs and pads all round. New Bosch Aero wiper blades. Ordered a new OEM Sachs clutch and DMF so i can remove the stage 2 Sachs clutch & SMF thats in there.

a few jobs left to do:

• Fit Standard Airbox & air intake & paper air filter
• Black LCR Drivers A Pillar
• 4 x Part Worn 225\40\18 Tyres
• O/S Drive Shaft
• Fit new clutch and Recon \ Replacing Gearbox
• Alloy Wheel center caps

Might extended the tax and mot on it, so its got a year on both to help sell it. The more i do the more money iam losing really, but id sooner sell it knowing its a good car as apposed to maximizing my profits and selling the problems on to someone else.
