Looks lovely. You've changed the headlights too haven't you or sprayed the inserts? Do like the new wheels too.

Oh yeah you did I remember the tin foil now.

Sure you'll have loads of goodies for your birthday next week too.

I really wanna go to a track day, not actually race I mean let's face it, I'd be quicker running.

Rarely come on here but i thought i'd update the thread.

Latest update is that i fitted my new wheels in January, everyone always goes with silver, anthracite or black which i didn't want to do. So i decided to get them in a colour which i haven't even seen in person and only in photo's. Bit of a risk whether it was going to look good or not but when they arrived i knew it was the right colour. Bought 4 new Michelin Pilot Sport 3s and had them fitted. I then sealed the wheels with Gtechniq C5 before putting them on the car.

Test fitted one of them to make sure the caliper wouldn't touch the wheel weights, i knew it would be quite close but they we're ok. I wasn't actually planning on fitted them just yet as we were supposed to be getting quite a bit of snow. Once i had the one on though i had to put the others on :p










Went to Three Sisters race track in March and did a few sessions there, handles so much better on the new wheels.









A couple of days later my radiator went. The resistor on the fan had come off, must of rattled itself loose whilst i was on track. The fan kicked in whilst i was parked up and hit the resistor into the radiator causing it to burst.



Got towed home from Warrington by a VXR, thanks Dale :)



Stripped it down to replace the radiator




Latest photo's of it










Went to Three Sisters again on Sunday, only managed to get one session in though before they closed.

I like that David. Did you do your sunstrip? Unblock me on Insta too ��
Thanks :) APM did the sunstrip, need a new one though as i've got loads of little holes in it from stones/grit off the road. Might see if i can get one done on the inside this time.
