Nice motor! Just looked at your post on Detailing World - very very impressive results with the wet sand! I don't think I'd have the guts to even try it!!!

Cracking car, loving the stance especially on the CSL's. What coilovers are you on? also what brake setup/ disks are you using?

Don't have a video clip i'm afraid, it sounds a little nicer but not louder which would have put me off. When we took the rear box off that was the first thing I did was have a listen and it made no output difference just a subtle difference in the tone.

With your ride height being low, what jack or technique do you use when swapping wheels around.

I like the ferric grey mv3's !!

Hey Mr S, who/where did you buy your indicator lens from, can you recommend them. All I seem to find on ebay are the very dark ones, yours looked 'smoked' which is what I am after.

Cheers.

I love this car even more than mine

I've got to say though, IMO the ride height is better now.
