    Cheers mate it's not been cleaned for a few weeks. Needs lots more work. New hoses and clips and I badly want an Integrated engineering intake manifold.

    Done the gearbox shim today wasnt too bad took about an hr from start to finish. Haven't had a chance to test it properly yet but definitely feels smoother changing gear.

    Took the car to AMD this morning for when they opened. Had cambelt and waterdecatdone and they also change the hydraulic dampner which some places don't bother changing. I also treated the car to a GFB recirc valve while I was there which they fitted for me. Also had the aircon regassed.

    Only thing the mechanic that was working on it said was the fuel lines were slightly corroded so will get some braided fuel lines and billet connectors at some point.

    Next on list is wheel refurb. Then need to get TIP,Front mount,downpipe and decat and get it stage 2 mapped.

    Not updated for a while. Booked car in for 24th November at AMD for oil pickup pipe and obviously oil and oil filter change. Also having SFS tip fitted and remap. Looking forward to seeing the difference the remap makes.

    Then ill just need to get front mount downpipe and decat for stage 2. Still need to get wheels sorted. Then will proberly do hoses and fuel lines and then get respray sorted. [B)]

    Update I had the wheels refurbed last week at Rimtec in Meopham seriously impressed with the results. There anthracite with a fleck in they look awesome in the sunlight.

    When I picked up new centre caps and wheel nut caps I also picked up service bits and a new oil pickup pipe. Having that done at AMD on 26th June and also having 3 inch tip fitted at same time.
