    Hey Miggies


    Glad to see you finishing her off all lekker for the mag feature...
    Would it be possible if you could give that rubber hose to Ashley for me? then I could pick it up from him at his work if he doesn't mind either. You also said you had a sh!tty catch can at home, I'd like to fit it to my caddy, as she pumps **** out like a mother.

    Hope your cabby comes out great in the photo shoot.

    Really appreciate it bud

    thanks nick!!!!

    i have mixed feelings about the k04 hey. the car pulls lovely and is awesome and is running very smooth but sometimes i wonder if it was a mistake going k04 and should have rather just gone gt28. traction is a big issue in the wet but thankfully our wet season is nearly over.

    i get to drive a few k03s on a weekly base and i have appreciated the power delivery of the k04 and being able to hold power past 6k.

    think i should just fit the NOS kit and see how it goes!!!

    last night i decided to remove the film on my headlights as it started looking ****. its been on for nearly 2 years!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    but believe it or not by removing the film it actually took a thin layer off the lens making it look faded! 1st time iv ever seen that. so i had to sand and polish till both arms went dead then re apply film and it turned out pretty decent

    my E-Brake is completely useless i can hang on it and it feels like i just tapped off acceleration. I made a post about it a while ago and no real help. it just feels like it is getting worse and worse. Iv ordered new cables to see if it will change at all
