Small update, interior this time

M Sport leather gear knob and handbrake cover

Managed to get these from England after a lot of phoning around, not one place in NI had them except Bavarian. Gearknob is so much nicer than the standard one, much smaller and soft leather




Also got my windows retinted today at Carnology, James as usual did a fantastic job. Went for a 15% shade, very similar to what was on the car.

I've been looking over the progress and all I can say is: Nice job!! The car looks fantastic. I'm just waiting on my wheels arriving -- they really transform a car. The ride height and rear bumper addition are perfect!

Question: how do you find the comfort with that kit and UK roads? Did you go with them due to the price etc?

Thanks mate, i am proud of the way the car sits now, its definitely come a long way in a year. Which wheels did you go for?

The car is still very comfortable with the coilovers fitted, it is bouncy at times but still is very smooth on the road, if you do hit a bad bump you will know about it though

I went for WSP Italy W675s in Gunmetal:



They should look quite smart Just taking an age to get here!

Interesting, I read a few niggles about those coilovers but they don't seem bad. Worth a look at that price!

Ok did a bit more tinkering with the car, a mate of mine uses NCS Expert, so i got him to do a bit of ECU coding on my car, he coded a digital speedo, clifford style alarm chirp on lock/unlock (i believe this is standard on US spec cars?) and flashing high beam headlights when the alarm goes off.

Also took some pics at an old style fuel station today, experimented a bit with some photo editing software.

They are 19 inch Autodesign CSL alloys.
