    It makes me wince and it's come out of your wallet (not mine!).

    If Abramovich owned an S5 he'd be struggling to keep up.

    Titanium wheel bolts for the new spangly rims? Brave move, but could save another big chunk of weight.

    Amazing how much removing significant weight from the outboard of the vehicle can improve the performance, ride and handling (often overlooked). Makes car far more agile, less crashy and generally better to drive.

    Now we just need the public wheel reveal!

    Epic, no more needs saying!

    Amazing build thread, I've re-read it a few times, after I do, I have the constant urge to get the debit card out again!

    Hats off to you Cuppa!!

    Amazing build, love it. I think it need a facelift and it will be perfection in my eyes.

    Uh uh, no facelift for me, I prefer PRE-FL DRLs and the lines down to the grille. I know I'm in the minority, but that's my opinion. I also prefer the really old mirrors (which I kept), but I do like the FL tail lights (not enough to change though).

    I have a couple, but they are fairly old now and poor sound. I'll have a go at taking some more footage.

    Makes it very easy to wash - no more worries about swirl marks :)

    Got the car back from MRC Tuning with the updated cooling kit they now supply with the TTS kit. Been a while since last dyno'd, but made an extra 27Nm of torque (664Nm) with a tune tweak (think the Okada coils helped with the timing). Happy days :)

    Not sure what they did in the map tweak, but after being impressed with a 27Nm torque gain I also got a record MPG on my round trip yesterday...

    cuppa whats the name of the new colour and is it wrapped?

    Would love mine to be this colour and was thinking of getting it wrapped fairly soon unless you can advise me otherwise....

    The wrap is transparent, i.e. it's the original body colour showing through.

    If you're going to get it wrapped then summer is the best time as the sun on the bodywork will make the wrap adhere to the bodywork better. It makes it simple to wash being matte as there's no issue with swirl marks - been OK for me so far, but to keep it balanced there's also some horror stories out there - plenty of info on the web of the pros and cons so best to read up.
