    So i decided to fit my vibra technic mounts when i got home from work this morning after a night shift, i still havnt been to bed lol, i forgot to take one of the gearbox mount, but im sure we all know what a mount looks like lol....

    First impressions are brilliant, the car feels so much more solid and tight, im over the moon, theres a little more vibration on tick over but thats the only downfall, although i quite like it, it tickles my balls.

    I got home earlier this morning and the post man had left me these, im still waiting on my dash strips tho..

    Nice little (OCD) touch with the arch screws there :smile: great attention to details, such a good looking car.

    Did you make a decision on the wheels in the end?

    Yes its the small things that make the difference :smile:

    Im still unsure on the wheels as of yet mate, i might keep these but buy some standard 182 wheels and get them refurbished so i can put them on when i go to meets etc for the oem look :smile:
