    The GP is my daily - the S3 is the wife's but I do get to choose which I can use as a daily

    I can't fault them for the money, I'd recommend them to anyone

    from cold they have loads of bite & they work better the hotter they get, I haven't had them on track yet but if their good enough for the Civic Cup they should be spot on

    Into the New Year, next up, stud conversion from Mtec in Tamworth

    After a week of driving salty roads, I didn't like the short nuts & stud ends being on show so longer black nuts were ordered, I was also gonna get a set of sport cup 2's but opted for 2 more PS4's as I was liking the pair I'd already got on the front. If I ever get a spare set of wheels, I'll probably fit cup 2's to them.

    Driftworks sell the nuts but they are the same & cheaper off eBay

    I've got no pics of these, one of my favourite mod's, Citroen washer jets, but they weren't sealed to the bonnet well, every time it rained, water would piss in & the hose wasn't a tight fit, they leaked when used. I lost the set I took off so had to buy new. They are now fitted with a blob of clear silicone under them & I heated the end of the hose up with a lighter, it shrank just enough to get a nice tight fit

    Massive thanks to @Flacsi :thumb:

    I ordered 1 of his drivers RHD lower seat rails. At last, I fitted it on Sunday, what a difference. Can't recommend it enough, it really should of come this low from the factory. All I need now is a passenger lower rail to stop the wife moaning :censored:

    Drop me a pm when you're next in the 200 as I wouldn't mind seeing what the seating position is like with the lowered frame in if that would be ok?

    Making the most of the weather, Saturday was a very productive day

    Hopefully, now winter is behind us, I gave the brakes their usual 6 month strip down, clean & coat of black smoothrite,

    new pins, out with the Kam Racing set, back to Mr Pinks, with spare clips
