      True. Will do. I have to say that the car is far far far above standard now and the power it generates takes your breath away but...the fact that it has so much puts far more duress on each and every part. As soon as i have upgraded one part, it pressures another until it breaks. This has been the case pretty much since the K04 gave up the ghost. Since hybrid, it's been top gasket leak, downpipe leak, engine mount bolts shearing off and subsequent engine drop, clutch slipping etc..etc..

      However, is it worth it?... When it works it is awesome and i never look back. To drive now, with the suspension, the brakes, the clutch and the engine bay looking sweet with enough bhp/lb torque to burn it puts a lovely smile on my face.

      My fear is when i come to sell the bloody thing!

      hi mate yeah was a total strip as I did it when i wrapped the motor, easy enough bro, takes bout 20 min to strip the bumpers if you never had them off, like I said the vinyl will play a massive part in weather it will go in on the front surround as its quite deep. I can provide you the vinyl if needed, idealy you wanna be using either 3m 85 Sereise CV3 or Avery 900 supercast. Im here if ya need me dude.
