You could have invited me this morning ( I was in a Skoda, so maybe not) Still recovering from my Telford experience, but definitely going to come up through those hills to see you some time and get the cars together

Haha, I should have swung you a message, especially after your Telford experience
To be honest the weather wasn't great and I almost never bothered going.
Definitely need to get the cars together!!

My new brakes are currently making an annoying clicking noise following the recent change. Like a playing card in a bicycle spoke. Need to get that sorted next!!

Full detail booked on 2nd October aswell to get rid of the Japanese owners bad car washing technique lol.

I've had that, it was when I had a swap on alloys and the weights were just in a place on one alloy that made it just rub on the brake caliper, but it was just like a click click sound as you drive, had the alloys re weighted in a slightly different place and it was sorted.

These cars are superb on back roads. Having travelled 500 miles in my 04 tipper, then 900 odd in our Skoda superb over a few days, it was AMAZING to get out in the spec C; it is a bend monster 😁

The reason I ask is that I'm contemplating for my next car daily/track car is a hatch spec c or a Cayman s pdk, but I think the spec c is in front due to all round practicality

The VF53 is such a pleaser.

Feels like instant boost, good mid-gear spool and high rvving too

Sold it last week. They said they weren't traders but it was blindingly obvious they were going to sell it on. Going to build a house so it's gone. Taking a break from cars.

How much did you sell it for if you don't mind. Just so I know if they are putting a big mark up on it

You wouldn't be able to import one for much less than the price that they are asking now.

Cheers guys, spent a lot on the car and time to focus on other things (house, drugs and hookers)

I won't say what I sold it for but at the price it's for sale it's a little to much difference imo. But hey a for sale price is not a sold price.

Its a good car. I hit a kerb in a multi-storey so there is a scratch on the offside splitter. And after a summer of use it's due an oil change. Boot doesn't lock either. Turn key and enjoy otherwise.

I don't know what it's listed at as only seen it on fb page.
if it's over 22k then yes you can import one for upto that landed. Circa 20-22k landed a nice mileage one (if found).

The trouble is actually finding one as original as this, without coilovers , at this mileage. This one drives like new, and is very clean. The H and S really suits it. I would have bought it off Paul at the drop of a hat.

It's all hookers with him, the house and drugs are just a red herring!
