There are a few up for it on the GB site as well, maybe you could organise something with them? Link

Not enough compacts on there

yeah, when i bought it, i was gonna lower it, fit updated lights , xenons, oh, and chip it (easy 180 - 190 brake). Nice.....

But then it needed a new turbo (partially replaced under warranty) then the day after i got that back the cat fell off! (came apart from the new turbo) Again replaced under warranty. AND THEN, i had soaking wet carpet in the drivers and rear drivers side footwells. AAAAARGGGGH!

Not a pleasant 6 months ownership and i have had enough.

Apart from that, they are good.

when i first got my compact i took it for a service and it needed:

new rear springs,
front ball joints,
rear subframe mounts,
new headlight washers,
abs sensor.
new rear brake cylinders and adjusters,
exhaust,
oh.... and the air bag light is on.

but its an ongoing project so to speak.....

brakes i'll rebuild, but a shop will do the final install of the parts. I would NEVER touch the braking system myself as i know it'd fail....
