[Wanted] Bits wanted

Hi all

After buying a D3 2006 2.7D HSE 2 weeks ago am gradually finding bits & pieces I need

Drivers side front fog light
Rear seating area air vent cover/vent
Drivers seat.. full set of seats would be nice but not sure I can afford them all yet. Seat heater is naffed and the upholstery is in pretty rough condition.
The rubber mat that sits in the centre upper dash where a sat nav would be normally fitted... someone cut bits out of the old one to bodge another sat nav in and for running cables.

I'm new to the Disco scene but loving it.. any other suggestions for improvements welcomed Very Happy

You have removed the locking wheel nuts I trust?...

I nearly came a cropper on this. Search the site for more info but in summary they fail and badly meaning almost impossible to remove.

Confused

Not yet mate but that's on the agenda. I have no locking wheel nut key either but think I've worked out I can get them off with a 25mm socket, 24mm just goes on but not far on enough to twist them off.. 25mm socket currently en route

I'll have a genuine LR fog light (drivers side) available by the weekend.... say £10 plus postage?

RE - Locking nuts, I would ber very, very wary of trying to get them off with a socket as they're temperamental with the actual key. My local indie had a box of them and let me go through to find the right size and then order a new key. I pretty sure if I had ordered the replacement nuts from them they'd have let me use the key to swap them over. This was on the wife's RRS many years ago, no locking nuts on my car but she seems to think hers will get stolen.

eesh - this sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. I'd be calling around local places that might have the correct key.

You're probably right Teddy, last thing I want to do is create more problems before I have even started. I won't be doing anything I'm not comfortable with
