Tommi - Edinburgh - Light mods done thanks to DIY's on here.

Post by Tommi » Wed Mar 28, 2012 4:43 pm

Hey,

Wanted to start to track my work on here and have an ongoing 'thanks' to the Forum for the DIY section that keeps spending my money for me.

- 2006 Titanium 231
- Black Oz Racing Superturismo wheels,
- Hymee Qucik Shifter
- NGK Iridium plugs & NGK Silicon leads, Uprated Coils
- K&N panel filter
- Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta 235/40R18,
- Premix 150ml (300ml on track) MOTUL 710.
- Seafoamed

This is me at Knockhill last Sunday, 25/03/12.

And this is it today after I spent the last 2 days installing TEIN springs, although It will take a little while for the springs to fully bed. I also replaced 2 broken drop links before the track day.

Small things next, such as gearbox and diff oil, another seafoam (after 2 more track days)

Next big thing is spend my pocket monies on is EBS Ultimax discs, yellow stuff pads and MRP braided lines all round, epic brake fade at Knockhill last week :)

Then uprated roll and strut bars, track tyres (Kumho) onto the original wheels, catback - remap.
