    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    graeme: I saw your car too, i parked near it, was you on Big Fat Tour aswell?

    Hey Dave! Hows things going? Your right, long time no see. Im not racing anymore, dont have the time for it, or money, ive been thinking of selling all my cars and stuff to fund this thing but i dont know how much any of it is worth nowadays, probably next to nothing... Rolling Eyes I saw ashley today aswell, balanced his wheels for him, he hasnt been racing for years either...hows your 'rado going?

    Thanks james! hows your VRS?

    Thanks Sarah, your car looks amazing on those steelies, really impressed with them....i might joined the banded steelie brigade one day. Haha...perks of the job...listening for rattles...at least thats what i was meant to be doing Laughing

    Chris, they are ASA AR-1's (9j on the rear, 8j fronts)

    Ill hopefully make it to the next meet. I think ive only ever been to one vuucult meet before......

    Thanks! Next stop is bodyshop to take my money, just need to find a good one....

    A3rutheboy - Thanks for the comment! I spent a day at MIJ performance for a custom exhaust, they ended up putting an oval back box on to fit better than a round one to get it to sit higher, they did a real good job, good bunch of guys, id recommend them. Just go for the quiet system....the rest of them (mild-sport/sport/race) are stupidly loud, i had the mild-sport one at first lol...it was like a straight through system!

    shame....i just spent bout £150 quid on a new back box... its a nice twin oval but just sits a but low and rubbish. i was hoping there was an easier way. (and when i say easier i mean cheeper too! Wink ) Ah well never mind still loving the car tho cant wait to see it at a meet.

    Does yours have a round silencer or oval? If its oval, you might be able to get someone to weld some new brackets on to get it higher up. Thanks, i should be at next meet, what have you done to yours? Looks pretty low in your avatar...

    i think it is oval to be honest, but theres only 1 mounting bracket on the car which i thort was weird 2 be honest.

    yea its pritty slammed. it can go lower but whats the point with the ammount of speed bumps around near me id just fek the sump or somet lol just looking for some new 225/45/17s or even 40's but prices are just stupid!

    Well, i thought id share some pics of my new wheels...DZ Exclusiv's, 8.5x17 and 10x17. Just in need of a bit of a rim polish! Razz Had a bit of a trial fitting the other day...

    The previous owner got his money's worth from the rear tyres, which are currently 235/40/17...but im thinking going for some 225/40/17, which seem to be quite a rare sight, or getting some 215/45/17...but i dont think i can trust my tyre fitting abilities to fit them on a 10j rim!

    Anyone got any tyre ideas for a 10x17?
