I finally got the car back, had the following done on it:

1) Gear overhaul - it was leaking tranny fluid
2) Exhaust repair
3) Window motor and wiring sorted - my power windows work now!
4) AC Gas refill - and it cools well
5) New Spark Plugs, NGK V-Power
6) New Spark Plug Wires - NGK Blue Wires ZE21
7) Radiator Cleaned and flushed
8) New Horn...from a SUV
9) Replaced the black rims with original BBS rims, same tyres though
10) Replaced engine oil
11) Replaced differential oil
12) Replaced coolant
13) Replaced tranny oil
14) Nismo Gear knob (!!)
15) New Air filter, Oil Filter, Fuel Filter

The garage is very good, honest, and they did a very good job.

It still requires a bit of work though, such as getting rid of the stereo system wires, amp and the cylindrical crappy sub. I couldn't get the BBS wheel caps to go on as the bolts are too long, but that's okay, they're light and look brill, and that's what matters!

The old rims are for sale btw, if anyone is interested, and so is the crappy, but working amp, and the sub.

Cheers to TNT for all his efforts in getting me in touch with the garage, and tagging along and advice, and Accord98 for the tip on the rims!

Maybe you should get some spacers! I am not a big fan of spacers but in your case, you will get a nice flush fit and also will be able to fit those BBS caps on!

I'd rather not get the wheel caps on as my area is prone to wankers stealing them (they stole my brother's FX35 cap), but yeah, I need them for the flushed look, unless I get wider rims later this year with a better offset.
