    Weird rattle...

    Wasn't keen on the intro music, but you immediately redeemed yourself with the "ey up"

    Car lowered, now front is knocking

    I had it on axle stands to do that. When I fitted the new ones I dropped it on its wheels. I got them as tight as factory spec then gave them a couple of days then put it back up in the air and fully tightened them up with extra leverage as I was getting the odd clinking noise.

    Car lowered, now front is knocking

    Mine is lowered "around" 30mm on Flex Z coilovers, I have no knocking or rattling but do every now and again get and kind of rubbery sounding creak at the front. I am expecting noise obviously and have triple checked things and everything seems ok. When I fitted them I wrote down every torque spec I could fine to have to hand. The only nuts I couldn't torque as my wrench doesn't go that high is the two 19mm nuts on the front. I just reefed on those with my driver with a couple of foot of tube added.

    Absolutely sure everything is tight? It could be something else moving.

    Mine were £80 from Japspeed.An added expense, but as I had to cut the original links off I had to have some. I subsequently learned apparently people fit Corsa D ones.

    I put adjustable links on mine.

    Worst Car Ever Driven

    I had a gAygo too, I actually quite liked it.

    USDM / JDM Parts

    I've used Amayama. I got all my interior trim from them. My local Toyota dealer couldn't get half of it.

    New car

    I must admit the first time I drove mine after I'd changed the Michelins I thought I'd ruined it. It gripped without sliding. Now I've had the Hankooks on a while I can safely say they are massively better tyres.

    Leave it on Primacy tyres, they're way more fun [emoji16]

    Needs a wash, and a drive.

    Device in glovebox

    Tis the alarm keypad. If it's going off a lot, try inspecting the switch under the bonnet. The bracket is a tad flimsy and can get bent enough so the switch doesn't do switching things. Also, I'm not 100% but will the alarm go off with low battery voltage too? You have things in your glove box too, you absolute rebel. I don't use mine at all. I hate things slopping about and making noise.
