Rplaced and broken parts (such as smashed fog light grille)
All rubbers moisturised and grit removed from all channels and runners
Carpets and boot foam washed

Anyone know how to have a DVD playing as you drive?

Do indy's have access to this via STAR or can I change a setting....

Any help appreciated
