Hi and welcome

The best thing to do is ignore the little problems and enjoy driving it.

I drove my +2 for 2 years and decided to replace the donuts, over a year later I have fitted cv shafts and am in the process of replacing the rear Sypder end for Issue 18. Everytime I look at the little things I have to upgrade other parts.

I think you have to remember how old the car is and accept that the little things are not always going to work.

Enjoy :lol:
