    Cheers Fran. Very pleased with the result. The only difference between the last run and this one are brand new injectors I reckon if it wasn't so hot today it may well have cracked the 200bhp mark.....

    Been a while since I last updated this.......

    Ran my cheapo 16's and winter tyres throughout winter and I think they saw about 2 days of snow lol. on those two days though, not once did I get stuck so very impressed overall

    18's went back on over the weekend which created a whole host of problems as two tyres places couldn't balance my wheels properly!! It's been a case of 4 times lucky in getting my wheels balanced.........(one place failed twice hence the 4!)

    Thankfully my mate Darren knew of a place so we went there today Also had 4 wheel alignment carried out so it drives absolutely spot on

    Looking good on the ramps! What was the problem that prevented the other tyre places from performing the alignment?

    Cheers! Shame it's absolutely filthy lol

    Not using the right tools for the job judging by what I was told at the last place. A combination of not using the right wheel holder and not clamping the wheel properly to the machine using a full face flange plate. That and they didn't stick the weights on straight! They didn't even bother to try and hide the weights either!!

    Drove to work this morning and it was so smooooooooooooooth! Love it! :D

    Yeah. Its quite suprising how different your car will feel after a correct wheel alignment. Happy days!

    It drives lovely! Luckily the alignment wasn't a mile out, it was the lack of balanced wheels that was ruining it All sorted now in time for the better (hopefully) weather!

    The colour of those wheels are EXACTLY what I was looking for! Sorry if I've missed it already mentioned, but what colour are they exactly?

    I'm in South Wales too, so may very well check out that company in Cwmbran. If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost for refurb and spray?

    Cheers,
    James

    Hi James

    I got them done at The Wheel Specialist; they call it Gunmetal Grey. My mate who runs a paint shop reckons its very similar to United Grey found on the MK5 Golf

    I paid £250 for stripping wheels, powdercoating and re-fitting tyres and balancing etc but I was a returning customer

    Whereabouts in South Wales you from?

    I'm in Swansea mate

    So that's a powder coat? I presumed it had been sprayed! My local powder coater reckons it's not possible to get that metallic look with powder coat, only flatter shades of grey.... I had a feeling he was talking sh*t! But it's ace mate. Exactly the colour I am after.... I'll have to get in touch with them!

    I also love the carbon fibre wrapped grille and rear diffuser you've done. That's something I'd like to do in time, but I wouldn't know where to start to be honest! The whole removing bumpers and stuff is out of my limits

    Yep a complete powder coat; the finish is superb

    I was lucky with the carbon fibre as a mate did it for me; removing the bumper was easy as we put it on a 4 post ramp :D

    Just the standard Concert 2+ stereo and Dension 300 system; the Dension kept failing to boot up meaning that when the phone rang I couldn't hear the person talking and it cut out the MSFW controls
