That's the winters on. Was surprised to see no TPMS errors on the dash...

These new tyres tram line a fair bit!

If you haven't got some already I'd look at getting centre wheel caps just to give the wheel nuts and bolts a little bit of protection from all the crud that gets kicked around on the road these days.

Seen as I've still got warranty I've got it booked in for them to change the gearbox oil, have a look at the driver seat and to also sort the rear parcel shelf supports. Happy days. Out of the 10 cars I've owned I only had 1 that came with warranty that I've used. Good stuff!

Watch those rear parcel shelf supports they are quite fragile. The replacement trim seems to have reinforced that part as they are prone to snapping off completely as standard.

I hope the gearbox oil change helps, mines having this done soon also (at my own cost).

Won roof racks on eBay! Hopefully source fixings for putting a couple of bikes up next month.

Picked up the Vitara after it had its bonnet resprayed.

Got home and fitted the protector!

It flares up quite a lot. Not too sure how I feel about it. It's there to hopefully serve a purpose I guess!

Woman from reception said the guys in the workshop were chatting about the vitara and all love it..... Apart from the paper thin paint!

I'll be looking at the wind deflectors next as the front protector looks odd I reckon without them.

Just a wee update.

Fitted a forge dump valve for the swift sport on the vitara.
It was relatively easy to fit and relocated it a tad higher than the original. Worth it for the smiles.... Ok it's not a 300hp impreza but it certainly makes my commute more amusing.

Enjoyed a weekend away with the OH. Nice weather as I was out taking some photos. Still smiling like a big kid at the sound of the blow of valve.

Suzuki is still going strong. My local suzuki dealership as gone under and has been replaced by an Arnold Shark. Will most likely just take it to the same garage I send our wee mazda 2 to get serviced/motd

Is that a scoutt one? My friend has one that is very noisy and like you say lifts quite a bit, the EGR one I have curves around the bonnet edge and very sturdy at motorway speeds

It's the scoutt one yeah. It's noisy but I also run the roof rack which is equally as noisy/whistly!

I've got used to it now tbf.
