    Would that sort of power twist the chassis under load lol 600bhp is a laughable power number haha

    I wonder what mpg you'd get lol I fully support this.

    Cheers. Haha, I was actually thinking that whilst I was washing it (everyone should pile round to mine to clean their cars) - except @Jimbobcook who can just wear his cape. But probably a bit of a drive.

    Been too cold even for me to wash the car. SL2 is currently held together by tape and feeling sorry for itself (and since it's raining, probably soaked inside). Insurance are supposed to send an engineer out to verify the quote before I can do anything. Think it'll be off the road most of Feb!

    And of course now it's raining FFS!

    Wait till the new front end is fitted or you will have to do it twice.

    Cheers. My right shoulder is on fire though.

    Was really easy to apply. Helped despite the nice weather, the panels were stone cold. Seems like there's loads of it as well even though I only got the small tub. The colonite just falls apart for some reason so I seem to get through it really quick. Or maybe I'm just cr@p at applying wax. LOL.

    Think you missed the good weather. When's the new front end ready?

    I'd go for that. I'm currently saving for a Wavetrac LSD. Then probably not this year. But at some point want to go bigger turbo.
