Been wanting one for a while, and at 235K I eventually managed to persuade SWMBO that the T16S 'vert ought to be treated with a little respect and dignity - and not abused as a daily driver / motorway mile-muncher, so bought this:

Same owner for past 12 years, very light usage recently (~2-3K per year) and allegedly an enthusiast. He had a 9-3 and a C900 and did his own maintenance. Alas, that left a bit to be desired, so immediately after purchase I got a full service and new DI Cassette to start off with.

Decided it wasn't blue enough, and needed some enhancements. Start off with the easy stuff:

That wasn't so difficult, try a bit harder:

Added some blue pipes - one at each corner, but they just slowed it down :(

Finally added a sticker. Unfortunately the bloke who sent the sticker (apparently well known on this forum) had already attached the sticker to some electrickery widget. I couldn't get the sticker off so had to replace the whole widget. Applying the sticker has definitely made it faster :)

I've also acquired some blue pipes for the coolant, but they will have to wait for another day...
