Thanks! I punched the idea from a blue one on facebook from memory, breaks up the sea of white!

I do struggle with the lack of depth of the front bumper as the splitter is almost invisible, I've seen a few with Laguna splitters, is that good or a bit 90's?

I use them as wets on the race car, they're pretty decent for the price. Only cars that have beaten us used full motorsport wets so I'm fairly happy with them

I cant complain to be fair, they aren't as good as say a Rainsport or a dedicated Wet tyre, but then in the dry you run rings around them and keep up with 888's etc.

For the money you really can't fault them, however i will say that i doubt i'll get more than 3 trackdays out of them, albeit I drive it as hard as i dare!

Perfect, that sounds like what I'm looking for. I haven't gone the whole hog yet and got a set of wet & dry tyres so they will have to do it all

They don't last a long time, that's the main problem. I've been using the same set in the wet for 2 years but in the dry they can run out after a few trackdays. Something like a R888 or DZ03G last much longer in the dry but aren't as good in the wet

Well she just passed another MOT! (Thank god...)

New set of B8's currently being fitted along with the rectifying work on the Xsara rack, oh and new strut top mounts for the front too, all of which will hopefully solve the knocking front front left

Silverstone on the 15th of Feb so can't wait to get it all sorted!

Well the 6 flew through the MOT, and it transpires the old B8's were totally knackered as the car is utterly transformed, I can see why people rave about the b8/Eibach setup, the ride is amazing, and the car is now silent. (What I thought was a knackered beam noise transpired to be a shot rear damper/bush...)

The new rack now works and turn in is just epic, cannot wait to get it to Silverstone in 3 weeks time, plus I personally think it looks ace on the 1.2's to boot :-)

No sadly not its a GTi,whilst not as quick it is still surprisingly fast and the taxman likes it more...

It's still 6's to 60 and as its a late 2015 car it came with every toy under the sun (Nav, radar cruise, heated seats, front and rear parking sensors, Bluetooth audio etc etc) it's an utterly brilliant car and there aren't many around so im enjoying that bit too

Not using 6 at all & 5speed box is smaller & lighter & doesn't stick out like a 6speed case does ....I can also get the gear Ratios better for track work Thumbs up
