  1. Agreed, I'd be interested to know what equipment was used, its really good quality!
  2. Welcome to the club, great looking car. Would be interesting to know how it compares to your 3.2 Carrera
  3. Great choice! Love the colour
  4. I don't have one, but that's my understanding. Plug and play. Really tempted to get one based on reviews!
  5. Thanks all. I knew they needed replacing but didn't realise how bad the corrosion had got. Presume the previous owner had not greased the bolts anytime recently either. Lesson learnt!
  6. Discovered whilst removing the front wheels to replace my corroded wheel bolts that 2 of them have kind of welded themselves to the wheel. Or rather the 'cap' part that sits under the head of the bolt has - it seems to have broken off from the main shaft of the bolt. I'd not noticed this before. Tried to prise the them out of the hole but stopped before I caused any further damage and decided it was better left to the professionals. Anyone ever experienced anything similar?
  7. Sounds good! Could I ask if you fitted the springs yourself, or took to a garage? I'm trying to work out how much it's going to cost me in labour - estimates seem to vary wildly on the forums, from 2 to 6+ hours...!
  8. Thanks Craig, have just ordered the 7mm + 15mm spacers plus longer bolts from Gert @ Carenwal. Yes, coupled with the H&R lowering springs I've just ordered I will definitely need to sort out the geometry! Thinking of having a chat with Regal Autosport in Southampton about that.
  9. I don't know the answer to that one Craig, but I just bit the bullet and bought the h&r springs as there is a code on ebay which brought them down to under £200! I imagine fitting will cost a fair whack mind...
  10. Thanks for this - kind of reaffirms what I've read elsewhere. Thinking that I may go for the 7mm/15mm setup purely for the aesthetics, with the knowledge I can remove them if needs be for more spirited driving!
  11. It seems that 7mm at the front and 15mm at the back is a common setup, looks wise at least. Not sure of the impact on handling though?
  12. Cheers mate, they were the standard 2.7 calipers, black and grey, but were faded so badly that anything would have been an improvement to be honest!
  13. Thanks Ray, the calipers were resprayed whilst still on the car, they did a very good job of masking them up! Was a speedy process as I dropped the car off in the morning and it was ready to collect 24 hours later.
