    My god mate. Fresh paintwork is always full on porn. Looks absolutely fantastic. Bet you can't stop looking at it.

    In the afternoon sun (ha ha!) that silver will look ridiculous.

    Don't know if this may help you decide, but if your changing the wishbone rear bushes. don't go camber adjustable. Use your top mounts. Reason....the rear adjustable bush is a nightmare to adjust in situ. Just go for a normal bush.
    Secondly, order new drop links and anti rotation arms, they never come out in one piece.....i.e angle grinder maybe needed!

    Good luck

    Agreed with the above. I just run standard black polybushes with adjustable top mounts. If you already have them, I would position both of the adjustment bushes the same and use the top mounts to get equal camber on both sides. Compbrake top mounts fully maxed out at around 2.2 degree's on my set up with 1.5 degrees of camber on the rear.

    Regarding the list of jobs you're doing, very similar to mine and a great step in the right direction, there isn't anything you've got in the list that I wouldn't do. Bigger two piece brakes and pads are next for me with a remap. After fitting the manifold it is very jerky to drive and certainly needs sorting soon!

    I was until the Mrs made me go shopping and yeah I love it ..

    I bought them not knowing I'd have the mounts until later on I was planning to get the bushes at full camber then set the top mounts as they will be better to adjust.. as I already have the bushes and the drop links and rotation links I have checked with my parts factor who can get them and have them on order ready to hit the go button

    Yeah it's the way I will go and it will be mapped soon enough..

    I don't know what it was but the last few weeks with the chip and not driving it much because of using the bike for work I think I lost some love for it so I decided to get the map to try and help things then the paint thing just happened so yeah very happy with it and it will be a new car when I get round to doing the bushes and top mounts the list I have to do is a big one but I have set a good amount of time to get it done

    drove the car to work today and love it it feels so much better to drive and much more eager to get there feels like a smoother drive when you put your foot down it just pulls and pulls i love it and cant wait to drive it again... one of the things that i have noticed when i used to accelerate there was a little lul halfway into the rev range and wasn't massive but noticeable now that has gone which makes accelerating much nicer and feels (this sounds weird) fuller throughout the revs the i have found the torque feels like its increased as i have found the pull on the car feels much better the rev limiter has been increased a smidge over the redline its brilliant i will report after another driver later on this afternoon.
