    New MOT today. Always a nice feeling

    Swapped front ds1.11 pads out for some crappy ones just for over winter
    And had an oil and filter change.

    Might go quiet for a little while until Xmas is out the way then back on the upgrades in time for spring and more trackdays.

    I wanted to see how much life was on the track pads and also how good these pfz pads are.
    Not much chance of hooning mate got 50miles left on limited mileage policy until it renews in January:grinning:

    Bloody impressive progress considering you'd never been on a forum before!
    Mine was standard for nearly 5 years until I joined here LOL

    Great news on the MOT Ben, always a pleasurable time when the pass comes through!

    I think it's fair to say you are definitely one of the victims of the forum policy of 'spending other people's money for them' :smile::smile: but all for the good mate, you have a superb car there!

    Update:

    Never really liked my Rainsport 3’s that I bought for wet trackdays so sold them on today.

    Had Michelin PS4’s fitted yesterday for the bargain price of £344 from a cyber Monday deal on black circles. Look forward to driving them in anger to see what the fuss is about.

    My new Autec Wizards are still in their boxes waiting for me to decide on what semi slicks to put on them. May well be into the new year now...
