    Dude, give Redish-motorsport a call.
    I know he sells track tyres and he might have some part warns but not 100% sure.
    Give him a ring and tell him I sent you (Scott not what my name says).

    Cheers. I can get hold of 2 Yoko Advan part worns from my mate but they have slight nics in the rim of the tyre where they were taken off. So if I can find another 2 225/45/17 advans I could be in business.

    I have a set of almost racing slicks on the back of my A3, if they're any good to you)

    I'm guessing they're just bald tyres Chris?

    They dont allow full slicks on the Ring as its classed as a public toll road so I need road legal semis.

    Right, He cant remember if there was a full set but i know theres some in there. Next time im there or near i`ll swing by and have a look. He said he`d do them cheap. They`re brand new and he said probably do them at 50 a tyre. Even if there wasnt a full set they might be worth snapping up but i`ll keep you informed next time im up there.

    Nice! How is the pedal travel compared to standard?

    I have the cayenne turbo calipers on my to do list. The price doesn't seem hugely different; new cayenne turbo calipers can be had for $900 ish. It'd be about the same to get old 911 ones and rebuild them. Also the 18ZR calipers are OK with the standard MC from what I can see.

    The pedal feel is exactly the same as it was with the S3 brakes except they are so much more sharper than before. They stop the car so much better, I'm impressed.

    Did an engine oil and filter change tonight as it's been 3 months since the new turbo was fitted. I also cleaned thee injectors and FPR.

    The last time i cleaned my injectors I didn't do the FPR and I was shocked at how much sh!te came out of the FPR! There was a sticky black goo that came out on the first wash!

    I gave the injectors 2 8 min washes and the FPR got 3 8 minute washes before I was happy with it.

    Hoping to have some track rubber fitted next week then it's off to the ring. I've done most stuff I wanted to for the car so this thread probably wont have many updates to it for the rest of the year

    Even though my injectors were cleaned only a few months ago, after last nights clean up my car felt so smooth and responsive this morning. I definitely recommend cleaning the FPR.

    Yeah sure. We'll do your injectors again too if you like. If I'd realised how dirty the inside of the FRP gets i'f have done yours at the same time last time!

    It looks like i'm having coil pack issues!

    Pulled out of work yesterday and had the distinct sound of an engine running on 3 cylinders. After a minute or two and a few revs it cleared.

    When I got home I scanned the car and it was completely fault free, probably for the first time since i've ever owned it lol. I let the engine cool down and I popped out the coils which all looked fine.

    Anyway, the coils are 14 months old now and were running on my old sh!te map for a year of that so I've bought myself 4 new coils and 4 new spark plugs.

    Pulled out of work yesterday and had the distinct sound of an engine running on 3 cylinders. After a minute or two and a few revs it cleared.

    When I got home I scanned the car and it was completely fault free, probably for the first time since i've ever owned it lol. I let the engine cool down and I popped out the coils which all looked fine.

    Anyway, the coils are 14 months old now and were running on my old sh!te map for a year of that so I've bought myself 4 new coils and 4 new spark plugs.
    Have you tried the recall?
