Re: Keeping the Zed - help needed though

43 offset will be fine but to bring the rears out you would need a 20mm spacer. If you do go for spacers make sure you buy the hubcentric ones, they are more expensive but they are perfectly safe as they have the correct size centre for your wheel to fit onto. I have 8j x 18 wheels all round, offset...

Re: Air con

Halfords do the gas recharge stuff in a can but for an extra £10 - £15 you can get it done properly where they suck all the old gas out & put the correct amount back in, usually with a small amount of lubricant & a dye to check for leaks

Re: Rear speakers

The best way to fit bigger speakers is to use a spacer & fit the spacer & speaker on the outside of the trim (this means cutting out a hole in the original speaker grill) but some dont like the look & prefer to keep it looking standard

Re: Will theses rims fit my car ????

Yes they should fit ok although I think the front will be very close to the strutts & if you want to fill the arches you will need to fit at least 20mm spacers on the rear.
Mine are offset 40, the front is just right & I have 20mm spacers on the rear

With yours being the facelift it is most likely the 1.8, if you look at the rocker cover on top of the engine it will be quite narrow as its single cam, the higher power one is a twin cam & has a much wider rocker cover.

I didnt think ASC was anything to do with the brake system, it just cuts the power (by the engine) to the wheels if you spin them.
The ASC & ABS share the same sensors but it doesnt affect your brake fluid.

A common place for the boot to leak is through the brakelight on top of the boot, the seal may need changing.
As for the steering wheel I am not sure but if its plastic touching plastic try silicon spray as that will be better than wd40
