Nope.
Thought you all drove Vauxhall Astras? :P
All good things come to those who wait. I'm really impatient which explains a lot.

F31 320i. Good car.
E89 20i Now fully dried
Z3 'free litre'. Project and a half. Complicated!
Mazda3 sold
Tatty old R56 Mini Cooper. Money pit!

Yea I'm asking as I'm after getting photos of the brake pipes running from the servo right across the firewall to the point where they drop out of the engine bay and the runs to towards the front brakes. I need this info for shaping and replacing on my roadster. Stupidly threw all the old pipes away not realising they don't come pre shaped😱

E85 3.0i,

ah - nightmare! views required from under bonnet or from under car ? If under the bonnet, I'll try and help. I'm not planning on being underneath it for a while yet.

Can't look at the moment - I'll wake the kids :)

Have you looked on realoem for the part diagrams to at least offer some context?
