    Wireless phone charge retrofit

    Anybody else thinking of doing this..... It's less than £40. I was thinking of doing this but my Sumsung Note 10 will not fit in that gap.

    Picked up the S5 today

    Don't think the V8 has added fake noise.

    Picked up the S5 today

    Hate to tell you but the exhaust soundtrack is all fake on the S5. It's just a rumble speaker. I thought it only contributed a little but I turned mine down to 50% and it is pretty much all the noise gone. The only good thing is turning it down 50% made the car much much faster. When I have...

    Oil catch Can Install 8.5?

    I fitted a catch can kit from ECS Tuning USA. Very expensive but it catches a fare amount of creamy black goop that would have probably stuck to the valves. This would need walnut blasted off at some point so it was cheaper than getting that done. Of course I've never seen the valves so...

    Strutco Strut Brace – with pics

    Just to add after looking at the eBay ones, I'm not sure they are a complete rip off. Lots of time taken to ensure they are plug and play so to speak, all possible clearance holes and slots drilled, cable tie holes to secure the plug that needs moved. Actually looks like a very very nice job.

    Strutco Strut Brace – with pics

    OK. It does come across as more of a sneer and that was not my intention, was just miffed at folk still being ripped off for these. So one reason I didn't start making these is I just can't fully guarantee that the measurements I use off my S5 will be spot on for everybody else's car, and...

    Strutco Strut Brace – with pics

    Canyon Run CR-15 strut brace(Replica for £20) Made myself, and is undoubtedly stronger than the official one as I bent the not required tabs down and didn't need to cut 50% of the drivers side mounts out as we drive on the correct side of the road and the water bottle mount isn't in the way...

    S4 brake recommendations

    Just went out to get lunch in the car... On cold brakes!! I slammed them on and kissed the windscreen... Nobody got run over.

    S4 brake recommendations

    I went for red as I already knew they were good on the brake dust front and are still a cut above OEM. I thought yellow would be more that what I needed. I also really don't notice the whole cold bite thing. After the first couple of roundabouts on my journey and I never push the car till it...

    Just had my S4 Avant stolen

    Just had my S4 Avant stolen

    A keyless car only means they don't need to smash the glass and plug in a unit that disables the alarm and then starts the car. An automatic centre punch does the window in 3 seconds and isn't that loud. The time taken to steal the car is about the same for both methods. Glass smashed, OBD...

    Just had my S4 Avant stolen

    I am genuinely really sorry for you. But I'm guessing you did nothing to protect your car other than lock it. For others on here who read this. Get your OBD port secured! Get a steering wheel lock! Do something, or lose your car.

    S4 brake recommendations

    I've had red stuff on 2 cars now and not noticed an initial bite point difference between the OEM and EBC. The first time was a Mondeo ST about 10 or 11 years ago perhaps more, this was before they did yellow stuff and I was expecting to have slightly less bite untill they warmed up, I'm not...

    S4 brake recommendations

    Also less brake dust with the Redstuffs, if they do nothing else to help with my braking they do at least give off less brake dust. Compared to other pads I have used.
