    Wheel fell off!

    After putting on hold until tomorrow lowering my car as we didn't have a tool we needed my best mate Simon replaced my NSF wheel and tightened the bolts to the correct tension with a torque wrench!
    We then had a BBQ some cider and gave the car a good clean!

    Great!

    Except he had also undone the OSF wheel bolts!!!

    AND FORGOTTEN!!!!

    I got about a mile this morning and pulled up due to a sudden bad knocking and BUMP! my OSF front dropped!

    Thankfully I had slowed to a stop and with a nice save from my wing, absolutly no dammage!

    After a short walk to retreive the wheel bolts and 5 minutes work all was back to normal!

    On the plus side I now knor what the car will look like lowered!!!......lol
