  1. I Run 11j rear wheels with 20mm spacers and 8.5j front wheels with 8mm spacers. But it completely depends on your wheels offsets, trye sizes and 'look' you want to go for.
  2. I think I will likely head straight there if thats ok. I Will print off the club stand sign to get through to the stand location.
  3. Sweet!!! should have the car in full LeMans race livery too. LOL!
  4. is there still space on the club stand for this??? Bit late to the party but only just confirmed I'm free for the day!
  5. You could just Vac Metalized the plastic handles. Leaves a metal finish to plastic parts so much so you would never be able to tell the difference in feel, cold to the touch etc... Sorry if i'm preaching to the choir but essentially they evaporate metal in a vacuum chamber which then 'clings' to a desired substrate leaving a uniform coating of metal round each part. Not a cheap process though, however needs must and all that.
  6. Make sure the overall outer dimensions of the HU fit within the opening on the fascia. A lot of Chinese HU's are too big to fit in and require the fascia to be cut and opened up to allow them to fit. Also as Mavrik mentioned make sure you only have single speakers in the door and not the sound plus package which gives you an amp in the boot that drives bass speaker in the doors. Not to be confused with a Bose system as they are not the same. A few weeks ago I did the swap for a Pioneer 290bt unit and I have the Sound plus package so had to rewire the harness that I ordered to fit. My amp in the frunk was dead anyway so I'm currently running it without the bass speakers unit I get an aftermarket amp and splice it into the wiring harness in the frunk.
  7. Had mine go in the pouring rain!!! My only suggestion to anyone doing it is masking tape is your friend. Mark up the current position of the mounting locations and it will save you loads of time having to mess about. As mentioned though def not something I would do again in a hurry
  8. No these are not the dynamic 'Audi' style indicators. Unfortunately I could only find those for LHD cars so they would throw a code on the dash because the rear fog light is on the wrong side and would fail and MOT due to this i believe. That is something too loo out for when buying rear lights for these as not all sellers specify this in the ad so its worth checking first. Havent got the exact link as there are a few sellers on ebay. Design911 do sell them for about £450 i believe but they are cheaper in ebay but obviously more risky with quality and if they are for LHD or RHD.
  9. So finally got round to buying a set of LED rear lights. Been wanting a set since I purchased the car and these came up for a great price second hand so had to pull the trigger. SUPER!!! easy to fit. Its just 3 screws on each light behind the panel in the boot that you take off to change a bulb, then they just slide out.
  10. Best advice is: Is the car for you to enjoy or are you just borrowing it for the next owner? Your answer to that question should give you an idea on what you want to do with the above modifications. I'm bias however as mine is very much 'heavily modified' with no thoughts about resale value because its been done for me, IF i ever come to sell it (unlikely) I can approach that 'hit' in value knowing full well I have enjoyed every moment driving and changing it into exactly what I wanted.
  11. Running some on mine at the moment the PS91 or PS71 I cant remember off the top of my head, but I really like them. And unrelated to the performance of them but they are a good looking tyre.
  12. Pop into your local OPC as mentioned. Usually wont charge for it or at least they didn't for me, so long as the guy doing it could hear the straight pipe exhaust on full chat
  13. That an Xclusive Customz kit. Had my side skirts and wing from them early last year. Was told by the bodyshop who fitted them for me they were one of the better fibreglass kits he had come across and very easy to work with. I have been tempted by the GT4 looking bumper but I'm yet to pull the plug and get it purchased as I'm still unsure on if i like the look of it.
  14. Welcome along Paul. I too own a 2.7 gen 1. It gets abused every day for the daily commute, track days and road trips. The fear disappears with anything engine related as Gear linkage cables are the most likely thing to go! Any car is likely to have issues but you only hear of the car makes and models ones owned by 'enthusiasts' and not your usual Mondeo driver etc... so take it all with a pinch of salt.
  15. Usually I can turn around a set in a week so long as no other commitments crop up as i'm sure you can understand I do this as a hobby more than anything to help people out who feel uncomfortable trying to do it themselves. I have been getting a problem with the 'half moon' design however. Where I attach the detailing tape to mask off certain areas of the light. Upon removal I have been finding it is pulling up the matt silver section of the lights to expose the plastic bellow. The actual surface of that bit is rough, almost like felt. So I think its clinging to these pockets and causing bits to come off when removing the tape. I'm going to try and find a replacement paint that will match this section or another way to mask the sections off but I have since repainted these to the normal black housing I do but gloss black instead of satin too see what they look like. When I get round to trying out the 'half moon' design again and finding a way round the issue, I'm more than happy for people to come round to try them out and I can supply a 'spare' set while they are being completed so people are not without their car. I'm yet to do an Xenon equipped car however the procedure will be the same as they share the same housings etc... Will just have to test a set to make sure the differences in thermals doesn't cause an issue.
