Went to Nurburgring the weekend, weather was wet all weekend but what an experience. Car never missed a beat all the way there and back including on track. Can't wait to go when it's dry

Latest mod for my car is set of 362mm AP brakes, nothing wrong with my 8pots but can't resist a bargain.
Pictures to follow when back from powder coating
Never ended up fitting the r888 tyres as they were 265 35 18 and were way too big for the arches on 9" rims so sold them and got
ado8r 235 40 18.
Must say I'm impressed with ado8 wet and dry they are much better than the pzeros that came off.

You would never say it's the same car looking at the pics when you purchased, and the pics now. Massive effort from yourself and some serious hours and graft put in. Really shows in the results.

So new brakes are on. I must say AP brakes are a great upgrade. Ksport did the job but these AP are next level .

Got a serious bargain on a set of equal length RCM headers, titanium heat wrapped, but for some reason previous owner sprayed the heat wrap silver.


So my own ported RCM unequal length headers will be for sale as soon as these are fitted.
