Speaking of mods, Mark was telling me he fancies a little more power so a map is in the offing,he also said to me that he didnt fancy the look of the wheels,something about them looking a little lost in the arches so he's planning a quality set of spacers soon :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

Just the 1 bucket? If you haven't already, you should get another bucket so you can do a 2 bucket wash to minimise any scratching during washing.

Car's superb! :thumleft:
