      Thanks! I wasn't a huge fan to be honest till I got the new Mugen wheels. Very happy with it now.

      Thanks mate, I need to get some proper pics of the car, I'm not a great photographer as the car looks loads better in real life! Will get some better ones taken this summer. I got some HSD coilovers, and for the money they are great, its a little bit stiffer than I would have liked, but you get used to that. Can't fault them for the money. Didn't really notice any different with K&N panel filter, it was more for keep the air cleaner on way into engine than a performance mod.

      Also got some Japspeed rear camber adjusters so the wheels at the back should fill the arches a bit better when fitted. And the car has settled at the front a bit now, so it looks spot on height wise. :Smile:
