    I'll see what I can do with touchup to try make it not a massive issue, but I may just have to take a trip to you and hope for the best with the match :)

    Took the Leon on to Oulton Park yesterday - was meant to take the 135, but had insurance woes.

    As it happened, there's no way I'd have had as much fun in it as I'd not have wanted to push it so hard.

    Came off once at rather high speed at the expense of my arch liner and tracking, didn't give my tyres enough of a warm up, anyone there would have heard them squealing the rest of the day :lol:

    However, super happy with how the Leon performed, just need to sort the couple of bits, get some new brake pads and back on!!! :D

    Managed 10mpg over the day, 170 miles cost £130 hahaha!!

    Had another track day at Oulton last Tuesday. Stacked it. She won't be coming back from this. Still drives - all cosmetic, but I think the time has come to let it go. Bye bye LCR.

    Yep I know it's cosmetic - but that's what'll piss me off ;)

    Don't have money to throw at it now, just bought a house. Get more money breaking it, so that's what I'll likely be doing unless I come into some no strings money quicktime!

    Depends what you call expensive. I'd gladly do it cheap if it keeps her on the rd b mint.

    Let us know if you need any help

    Don't let her go!! Will be another sad end to a Lcr . Had similar damage to mine ( lovely man in a transit stoved in the side and cleared off ) . Couldn't let mine go!! Difference is yours is out your own pocket as I guess insurance doesn't cover it.
    Sad sad time if you let her go , and you know deep down you will regret it.

    jake - I'll give you a shout for a rough idea, but I really don't know what/if I'm prepared to spend.

    cupraslayer - yeah - it's sad, but I've got no one to blame except myself, and I did kinda know it was a possibility of using it exclusively on track .. just didn't think about how I'd feel if it actually happened haha

    So.. I logged in looking for any LSD for sale.

    Saw my own thread on the fancy new forum

    As it happened, the R never met her end thanks to Jake. But this new forum software doesn't seem to allow thread titles to be changed, smort!

    It's still going strong, done a fair few track days since. Standard seats now out, have 2 sets of ronals but it really just gets used for fun..
