    Bet you're glad to get that one out the way. They're so much more important now than when the main reason for them was for smoking (where has the smoking smiley gone?...)

    Camber arms look nice and tidy mate. Think I'm in need of some new Bush action.. Let us know how the poly ones feel... I've never convinced myself that they won't be too firm / crash.

    Rattle noise when cornering

    Any idea where the noise is coming from generally? Is it like a knock or does it keep rattling?

    Replacement coolant hoses

    I think that with silicon you're relying on the jubilee clip (or similar) to do all the work, whereas with rubber over time it starts to weld itself to the metal, so even if there's a problem with the seal from the clip, the fact that the rubber has joined forces with the metal will save the day. That said, there's plenty of people who've been running silicon hoses without any issues. I've got silicon ones on (for about 9 months I think) and so far so good.

    Not really I mentioned it because I spotted the induction kit... It's just that it's an extra bit of gubbins that's not needed anymore . I suppose taking it out might make a path for air to come into the engine bay, but likely to be such a small effect.
