A 'Dit' is the common name of a far fetched story used in the RN community. A tale of derring do & heroic actions whilst under the affluence of incahol !

Fitted this morning, Very easy to do if anyone wants to do it too.

The trims are fitted with a little bit of 3m tape to hold the corners and 2 push clips.

It's easier to lift to bonnet to get behind the trims. They'll come off pretty easy with a bit of a pull.

Vitara S - Bright Red - UK Spec - Page 2 E5e03e10

Make sure the area is clean, dry and free of any old 3M and simply push the new trims to fit.

How it should have left the factory, will certainly be changing my dad's Vitara S to black

Nearly all sports or GT cars of the 70's boasted on blacked out chromework

Finally got around to fitting my boot net, came as a pack of two, so I'm unsure what to do with the other. Always handy as a spare I suppose.

With huge help from Karl, and all credit to him I've finally got around the fitting my heated seat kit. It's not 100% in yet, I'm trying to juggle everything between the light after work and the little one, so there's not much time to be found. But so far we're looking good

Also, my forum stickers  have turned up and will be fitted once I can get the glass clean.

Got hold of some sill protectors this week and a reasonable (not really) price.
I'm getting a few scuffs from people getting in and out so hopefully they'll offer a bit more protection.

More goodies from AliExpress came today.

Door Hinge Covers, a bargain at £1.55 for the set of four, they're a good tight fit and are easy on the eye.

For todays added extra, Power fold mirrors on lock and start up. Firstly, a huge thank you once again to Karl for all his help.

On lock, With the key fob or any of the door buttons, the mirrors will fold.
On start up, the mirrors will open so no need for pushing that button anymore.

This is the (almost) plug and play loom that makes the magic happen

Vitara S - Bright Red - UK Spec - Page 2 7705df10

Vitara S - Bright Red - UK Spec - Page 2 0503d510

It's pretty easy to fit yourself, but a multimeter would be a very handy tool to have as I found out.
I'm sure over the coming weeks, Karl will put up a how to if he is able to get hold of more (I wouldn't hold your breath).

Just a Heads Up reference the sill protectors. There have been postings on a Škoda forum of rust forming under these due to water ingress. Although the sill protectors were bought via Škoda and are official Škoda branded merchandise, the owner fitted them himself. Due to this they refused to honour his anti perforation warranty as he couldn't prove he had fitted them correctly or to the same standard as a Škoda Technician.

If they had been installed by a Škoda Tech, they would have honoured it!

Karl sorted it all for me, as I said in the original post, I'm not sure if he can sort anymore or not. I was one of the lucky ones.

I've put together a spare wheel kit with an SX4 spare, the only difference between the Vitara spare wheel and the SX4 spare is the colour, They'll be Black or Red, respectively.

In the tool kit there is..


  • A jack
    Jack handle
    Wheel brace
    Locking nut
    and a quick align tool, which can be found on the link below.

It's a shame the Vitara comes without a spare, but is a must carry even if there is free AA cover offered.

Inspired by Karl, I too have now stored my inflation kit in an old winter pack.

The compressor and sealant that becomes redundant when you fit a spare wheel just fits so well and far more useful than the winter kit
