Looks familiar that

Nice clean looking motor mate. I've got those yellow fog lamp protectors too, I've had them on for a couple of months now and I'm 50/50 as to whether I keep them on or not

Now you're talking...! No CTR should be seen without one!

Smart car by the way mate, then again I would say that being the proud owner of a pretty much identical beastie..!

Cheers

Nick

Sweet, yep Skunk2 is great - looks the part but also makes a genuine difference when shifting. Got mine online off Funkypower (as have a few other members) if that helps, was a decent price and also quick delivery. Occassionally used ones come up on the forum too, but they get snapped up almost straight away..!

eibachs and new brakes fitted

i had a busy afternoon today
the postman delivered my -30mm Eibachs from APB yesterday ,so i thought id better get busy.
my new brakes also turned up earlier in the week ,so whilst i had it all apart i stuck those on as well.



good job i did as they were pretty shafted



no wonder it made a droning when braking from hi speed



shiny new bits









I cant really tell if it looks any lower at the moment ,it definitely drives a whole lot better ,less crashy over bumps.
im sure it needs to settle a bit yet
