    The battery was used for over 18 months on a track car which was used once a month and it had no issues. I asked today the persons car it came off and he had done the research on it initially but cannot remember what the exacts where my car is used regularly so (hopefully) it's not going to be an issue but it's got a status indicator but will keep an eye on it.. as I mentioned I haven't paid for it so it is a bit on an experiment. I've just been 10 miles the and 10 miles back and I all seemed fine..


    However on another note

    So that's a saving of just under 17.5kg

    Had a weird issue the other day hopefully I have fixed it.. my boot switch has been playing up recently I haven't been able to get into it until untry about 4-5 times.. then recently would open randomly when unlocking the car and and just getting in in general.. so today I fitted a few boot switch. We'll see what happens..

    Looks a tight fit around the strut tower! Be interested to hear your thoughts on it.

    Not sure if they're needed on the 197, as the turrets are pretty much part of the bulkhead.
    But be good to see if it makes any difference.
