Thoses deflectors look good, I'd planned to make them out of plastic but I'm liking the look of the alloy. I'm still leading towards the Merc as I often find myself in traffic for no reason so for the small extra cost it will give me a little bit of peice of mind.

Yes that's correct - and it seems to work fine with the fan cutting in after being stationary for what seems ages and then cutting out shortly after (standard MX5 fan)

I like your Renault Scenic center rear seats - I used the outer pair from the same car - very comfortable indeed

Thanks, the seats work well & were a bargain, one cost 10 the other was an extortionate 30, runners were off a smart car, eBay special!!

When I took the car for it's Iva, there was lots of idling time but very little fan cutting in, it had to be encouraged to get hot to prove the fan worked!
