  1. When you say 'light' how light exactly are these any stats? All I know is most alloys I've lifted are far from light, I'm trying to perceive the effect/difference on unsprung weight.
  2. A v tasty looking wheel that have to say, the OZ ones look nice too but the JR ones for me just look too similar to the standard tsports
  3. It's one of the best long term expenditures you could make if you want to do that, it sounds quite a good place price and service that, itd just ideally be done in a glorious week that we prolly get only once in a decade!!
  4. Well that's plenty of time for it to dry out!! Must be quite a comprehensive service none of the quotes I got took that long Oh just another thing as a bit of a pointer I'd make sure the garage is offering dinitrol and not actually waxoyl it's a better product and I found the better places only offer that and not actually waxoyl
  5. You'd think garages like this operating this sort of service all year round would have some form of drying arrangements now, but tbh I don't fully trust em and I'd wait for a nice spell spending 750 sovs. When I first got mine I looked around a lot for this sortta service and your price doesn't seem too bad compared, but I was never quite happy with the owners assurances and premises, in the end I compromised and addressed the worst areas myself, and then booked it in for a schutz undersealing my Toyota dealer does for 60 quid, but I must have rearranged it 5 times due to the weather that summer until in the end I just said sod it and got it done on a tepid day, but if u don't get it done right can do more harm than good, I think I'd wait for a bit myself personally unless you can drive to Tenerife and get it done there!! What sortta notice do they give for booking in?
  6. I've sortta grown to quite like those p flaps but I'm not sure they'd look good on all colours, not sure about blue for instance, but yeah I think the price is way excessive for what they are, I've thought about it, but personally I think maybe going down the route of akuma with a decal or wrap coordinated to the individual car's a better route
  7. I know what you mean bazz, it's a personal thing, but I must admit, at my age it would be a handy reminder for which side the filler caps on!!!
  8. Hiya wolfie your engine bay looks really nice a lot cleaner than mine. The catchcan looks good what does that do and what benefits does it have? And is it easily plumbed in?
  9. I have watched quite a few of this guy's vids he does try and do some interesting comparisons tbh
  10. Hiya cheers, no the discs are just normal 'non-grooved' but thanks for the suggestion, think they were all ebay/ecp cheapies they're terrible look coal powered or something, thought about painting them black but not a real fan of that, but it's really thick stuff hard to remove, I can't understand it the rears are just as bad and it's not as though I'm practicing emergency stopping!! Yeah I've heard about the wheel wax, if I can get them clean in the first place!, is it actually different than just 'normal' car wax?
  11. The brake dust on my wheels is shocking, black thick and really unsightly totally ruining any look of my wheels. I've tried painting the inserts dark and still look crap. I've not long put new discs and pads on there (think they were standard mintex y type things). Has anyone got any tips on a) removing the dust and keeping it at bay b) anything I can put on the wheels that 'll help it not stick/make em easier to clean c) any other solutions at all like brake pad brands that give off silver dust thatd be handy!!
  12. I've noticed on my driveshafts think the o/s I'll double check, there's a piece of rubber integral about halfway along it that seems to be 'disintegrating' is this like a dampener or anti-vibration thing along it? has anyone any experience of this? And does this mean it's gonna snap at some point? Cheers in advance for any help
  13. Think it may help with cleaning and keeping parts lubed up I've read about adding 2 stroke but not tried that people even use diesel I've experimented with acetone, paraffin and white spirity type higher up the aromatic carbon chain type solvents in the past with varying success you've just not got to overdue it, from what I can remember that's all pretty much what's in redex anyway and prolly the detergent type additives in vpower petrol etc. I think atf mite be another one I've seen on good ol youtube
