M-Power Reg Surrounds Fitted

So my new M-Power Reg surrounds arrived today courtesy of Dave @ CDi to replace the existing surrounds.

Unfortunately the existing reg plate had just been screwed on, so the holes are visible. :( New standard metal plate set ordered from eireplates to replace them.

Also, I had not really paid much attention to the fact the front already had a plate holder, even with the existing surrounds, it was only when fitting it struck me. :eek: I'm on the fence as to how much is bothers me or not, now that the penny has dropped. :confused:

With a set of Kumho's courtesy of John from The Garage Dunboyne. John fitted and balanced them and I am booked in with Conor in Scully's on Thursday for a 4 wheel laser alignment. Also due to pick-up a space saver wheel kit from Murphy & Gunn Thursday.

Then at last got to give this whole snow foam stuff a try, courtesy of the group buy from the Detailing Shed. Thanks again Chris/Dave my son loved it, so we had to do it twice cos he wanted to. ;)

Pics are of my first attempt which was the learning stage, car was completely white next time around but forgot to grab some snaps. :eek:

Just picked up the space saver kit today from Ken in M&G seen as the runflats went last week. Had to come from Germany so with the long weekend took a bit longer than expected. A few pics of the contents of the box. :)

Yeah no wheel well, don't ever recall seeing a purchase option to remove runflats based on prior E92's, however they do support you doing it. Its a bummer for sure but actually not as bad as I expected.
