A friend of mine recently visited Magnus Walker and brought me this:

After replacing the interior light by a LED bulb, I also did the foot wells and boot.

Some pictures that you can tell nothing from:

Nice. I want to do this also. Those stock ones are not bright enough.

Yeah, I mainly did it for the added light, my parking structure is quite dark all the time. I got these (clickable):

- dome + boot
- foot well

No updates because... ehr... there are no updates. Only bought fuel and drove around for work. Currently trying to sell both the S-Spokes and the Borbet's to get some lighter 15" or 16".

Right, so I'm still contemplating some new wheels. I'd prefer lightweight 15x7-8 and ET30-35 in antracite or matte black... So far my options have been:
- 949Racing 6UL: expensive to get over here, sold out everywhere
- Enkei PF01: even more expensive and hard to get
- Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2: MX5-cup wheels, but still rare over here... not sure about the looks in 15"
- Speedline 2020: magnesium version of the 2118 (just 5.7kg), but the set offered to me have been tracked intensively on a Clio, magnesium hard to refurbish
- OZ UltraLeggera: best option so far, just have a hard time finding a used set over here
- EDIT: ATS DTC: available in 15x8 ET30 and black in my price range, just have to find a place that sells them now

Any other good options I should consider? All the obvious options in the US (Kosei K1, TRM C1, etc) have lost a lot of their cheap appeal after shipping/VAT/importduties.

Decided to clean my air filter yesterday, it's been on the car for about 25,000 miles now... I expected it to be dirtier, good think I took a before/after pic:

(left before, right after)

Luckily I chose the 'dry' aFe filter when I got it, so don't have to re-oil it. Dried it for a day and fitted it again. Gonna have the oil + filter changed tomorrow so should be good for a while again...

About the only thing I can see that looks different is the wood floor looks cleaner in the right pictures....

It's actually a table. Water that came from the filter was quite clear as well. I guess living in a wet climate does have advantages...
