    Pav, Ben was leading, it was me who had to keep up. And that Megged Clio does NOT hang about!

    Knowing when you can get your foot down helps a lot obviously and you caught me napping a couple of times!

    But as I said on the day, VERY impressed with the pace of your car!

    Thanks mate.
    Glad you drove it. Felt quicker in the passenger seat than I thought it would!
    I’ve thrown a few quid at it obviously so would expect a bit more pace. Always nice to have it confirmed though:grinning:

    Always feels better in the passenger seat. You soon get used to the extra speed when you're driving.

    Next time I'll bring the M3 and you can return the favour :wink: :thumb:

    Should be about the same on pace as yours so you'll feel at home! :wink:

    You'll like the noise though...

    Yes mate, but it's all about the induction noise from the huge carbon air intake. The Supersprint sounds pretty decent too.

    Best thing about the car is the noise mate. You'll see.

    WISH I could have that engine / intake / exhaust set up on the Lotus. Would do it in a heartbeat if I had the funds.

    Collecting wheels today. Just waiting on last wheel to cool down. Had a mark on it apparently so they’ve done it again this morning. Have to say they look bloody good:thumb:

    Sprayed up and fitted centre caps. Only a 90% match but certainly good enough for track wheels!
    Highly recommend citywheelrefurbishment in Birmingham. Top outfit
