    BITDI Brake upgrade options?

    Wondering what the recommended options for upgrading the brakes on a C7. 5 BITDI Avant would be? I feel this thing needs better stopping power. It definitely stops, but not as well as I feel it should in some situations especially at higher speeds. Compared to my ex-bosses C5 RS6 that thing...

    VHF trackers other than 'Tracker'?

    Doe's anybody know of any car trackers out there that provide VHF units other than 'Tracker'? I like the look of Tracker, the price for the kit and installation is no issue, but the annual subscription of about £130 per year puts me off as I cant really justify that outgoing (mainly as my cars...

    Flat bottoms (from ebay)

    Anyone have an opinion on these wheels from Ebay. They look great and are much cheaper than one from a breaker/write off etc. Has anyone used one, or have opinions on whether they are a good/bad idea. I suppose my main concern would be the materials used and how well built it would be compared...
