    our Matt's got this REALLY cheap

    gearbox was shot, but Matt has fitted one that he had at his unit

    were going halfs on the purchase & modding costs

    going to keep the purchase/modding cost under 999 & use it for next years Practical Performance Car 999 Challenge.........also going to do some trackdays & drag racing with it

    so i'm on the lookout for a performance exhaust & uprated ARB's...... i anyone see's any, give me a shout

    first on list is a couple of tyres.......the current front ones are the wrong size scratch

    may get some wheels that are easier to clean

    need a better cone air filter than the current one

    i'm mainly looking for performance bits on eBay and forums to keep costs down

    it's never going to be a shiny show car No

    it was very un-spectacular

    i was on the un-lit part of the M62 & there was a thud at the rear of the car
    thought i'd hit a rock/bit of wood

    a bit afterwards there was an other thud & the car started to pull a bit to the left

    a shame it wasnt one of the fronts, cos there the wrong size (195/50x15).......but it was a rear (205/50x15)

    65/70 at that point........was trying to get max mpg out of it, got 33

    just to be different to everyone else...... i've raised the front suspension by 25mm Very Happy

    ok, not just to be different........ due to now having 205/50x15 tyres up front, the front right was catching on the arch Crying or Very sad

    going to raise the rear a touch too

    big thanks to Spen for lending me the spanner to do this thumbs up

    ........

    more bits have come today

    2 part worn Yokohama tyres, for trackdays

    Twin smoked Hella front lights....... i'll be able to see were i'm going

    Shame you gotta raise it... I suppose it's cheaper than replacing the tyres!

    current lights are rubbish

    Matt's already had the sump off to knock the dint's out of it (last owner dinted it)

    can't have the tyres rubbing on trackdays...... i'd get black flaged
