    Icon7 Where would you Spend $250 on your Frogs?

    Excluding consumables like petrol, oil, filters and everyday tyres...

    Say you have decided that you had $250 free just for the purpose of spending on one or more of your French fleet - what would it go on?

    SuperCheap has a portable tyre changer for $70. That's a start if anyone can locate a matching balancer.

    I've decided my "theoretical $250" would go on the 605 climate circuit. A new OEM control module for the fan ($100), new TX valve and a regas (the balance).

    I bet th evaporater is corroded. I reckon you'd enjoy the dash out job to replace it, as it's the same as the XM part. You can borrow my heavy sledge hammer and sabre saw to aid removal if you like.
