    Just ordered these today. We were after a good quality wheel stud kit to replace the current bolts, first off the bolts are a pain to line up with the spacers and second they have seen a fair amount of work, some people say you should replace every season due to the stretch and strain they are put under.

    A Proper TUV approved, 10.9 grade hardness, high quality race spec bullet nose wheel stud conversion kit

    Love storm grey. How do you find the rsr's? I'm looking to get some track tyres for the spring.

    Great, obversely there are better track tyres out there, like the dunlop direzza's, but for the price you can't beat them. Equally good enough in the wet.

    When this Cayman GT4 was getting blue flagged on the damp day, I think that says it all. And he was pushing hard, sideways out of the corners. The traction control system works so well even with the Megane engine it feels factory standard, pulling the back end in line when needed and cutting out understeer.

    This is a lovely car, much the direction I'm planning to take mine although maybe without the R26 engine for a while!

    We had a 197 carbon one fitted but it just seemed a lot of money to be hanging out the back end on track, so sold it and got this one in a part ex, Also I slightly prefer it over the 200 one as it looks more like a real diffuser, plus the confusion when you pass people and that it's a 197 miltek exhaust so the tips poke out the back what I think looks a bit better, plus long days on track start to melt them so cheaper to replace this, but overall it doesn't really bother us that much and you barley notice it when around the car.
