just a quick update. have fitted the b&m shifter to the new grandad spec vl. have discovered it has a leak in the windscreen so have removed the glove box and the carpet from the vechicle and heater fan to see where its leaking.thought id scrape the sound deadening off while the carpets out so far half done with the drivers side still to be done . surprisingly the sound deadening ways a bit about 5kgs with still more to be scraped out

Just letting you know what you could be in for, I did exactly the same thing to my berlina last year, had big puddles (yup puddles) of water in both front footwells, so I pulled half the dash out and the carpet and I still couldnt find where it was coming from. One day I had to get a new windscreen coz it had a crack in it and when they took it out there was rust the whole way around it. So I had that fixed up and a new windscreen put in and it hasnt leaked since. Still has a big leak in the boot tho.

Boost is over-rated

I started looking into building a new house, so the VLBT idea will go on the back burner if that happens!
