    Even after only 4500 or so miles the gearbox oil certainly did need changing, the gear change is so much better.

    I have changed it every year too

    I finally got around to installing the power fold mirrors to my vxr, took three hours in total to add the extra wiring and swap over the mirror units.

    I can confirm they are plug and play, no coding required. One press downwards on the mirror switch folds them in, another press and they return to normal position

    I used this thread for the info

    https://www.vxoc.org.uk/forum/Thread...RORS-retro-fit

    Part numbers I used;

    LH power mirror - 13342461
    RH power mirror - 13342463
    power mirror switch - 13345014 or 13498638

    ps: They are the gloss black mirror bases, you will still need the mirror glass and it's motor, plus the painted outer cover from your current mirror units

    Next job on the list is to get the reverse camera working, had a slight set back with the coding. But I have a cunning plan B

    Finally the rear reversing camera works



    I also remembered to take a photo of the bonnet gas struts, I made the alloy brackets on my mill and the gas struts are just universal ebay items.

    Looking good mate!

    I didn't know the J didn't have a self holding bonnet strut like the H has!
