    Great photos Pav, the witch looks immense on track! Really glad you enjoyed it so much and you could make full use of the extra performance! I'm sure the track bug has well and truly bitten you now :wink:

    i used the opportunity of my wheels being off the car and gave them a proper clean prior to sealing them with C5..hope they will be back on the car by next weekend..
    checked my tires and must say that given i bought them last summer,there's not much tread left on the fronts..a bit disappointed if you ask me...expected more from GY ass3..will swap them over since the rears are still decent...

    I've heard good things about C5. Should hopefully be easy to apply too, especially compared to the standard alloys! I bought mine ASY3s last summer too, even though I rotated them i've found that they've worn down considerably. At least that means an early tyre upgrade though :smile:

    Yeah thats what happens when they have 280bhp through them..

    Saying that I do found my fronts had worn down quick also when I last had ASY3s... Do have to expect that on a fwd hot hatch though.

    The wheels are looking good Pav! That is quite surprising that the GYs have worn down quicker than you thought - with or without extra boost :smile: Mine are still going strong - I think I need to get out in her more!

    I reckon some Recaros, or other sexy bucket seats, are next on Pav's agenda :wink:

    No, the naked woman needs to be in the back seat with me, Pav needs to keep his eyes on the road!

    Definitely seats I reckon. Being back in Will's Mk3 at Bedford I realised how amazing they are on track!
