Hi John ..

 

Not today.. but tomorrow will be wash, polish and a wax day for mine ( ok not as exciting as a new exhaust or tyres), then a trip up the A1 towards London to meet up with a friend.

So it’s been over 30k so I thought I would run a clean through the K&N filters and change the engine bay stickers out for a New set as they had been on for over 4 years.

Well After John I tried the Meguiars Plast-Rx

Unfortunately I could not get the same kit as John so it was all by hand, About 30 passes. And a good amount of elbow power this is the result nearly as good as new.

Cannot wait for the morning drivers to start flashing me

Looking good!  I know what I've been meaning to ask for a while: do you get a pair of the large K&N stickers (in addition to the little "Stop" sticker) with the dual filter kits? :)

In each of the Filters you get a single Sticker - and a Stop Sticker.  So when you buy two you get one in each.  You can also replace them with the Sticker Pack from K&N P/No:  89-0200 - Decal Promo Pack.  Which Amazon sells or direct from K&N

Today I fitted a carbon fibre 'slam panel'. Easy to do but needed new fixers as most were broken.

The verbose eBay title for it was

Carbon Fiber Front Racing Radiator Cooling Slam Panel Protector

Hi Kev that was my Zed. It was an eBay purchase from 'rejapanknight', short link to the item = http://goo.gl/UuUE8t

As usual you will need to wait a month or so for delivery.

Slam panel looks great Laurence, but a bit pricey for something you will rarely see, I will have to give it some thought but thanks for sharing.

New boots fitted this morning  :D

 

First Impressions from the short drive home is that they have a more comfortable ride than the Vredesteins and they also pick up more loose chippings judging by the racket from the rear wheel arches (Leeds City Council have just started the annual summer crap road covering with excess chippings) which should translate into more grip.

Good news . . . except for the temporarily ropey road surfaces.

 

You'll have seen ERYC has/have done the same.  Hopefully that's it for now, and the sound of someone distantly letting off a shotgun in our rear arches subsides.

Hopefully silly season has ended, they never learn, cheap resurfacing only results in having to do it all again next year and they never sort out the pot holes, just put bloody chippings over them.

Dropped the Zed off for the MOT yesterday evening and got the phone call to say it had passed with flying colours this morning and I have just bought the oil and brake fluid ready for the next service.

another successful MOT...13 months to the next due date

took the opportunity of the while you wait, to take these out;

Impressions

The Nismo Recaro seats are not for me (I have a sore back at the moment). Did discuss with Dean (technician) ordering a v1 wing and attaching it to the v2! He thought it was feasible.

The GT Auto is basically my car, but 7 years and 80k miles newer. Home from home. Like the driving lights, like the red calipers, but do I prefer my wheels? (Thoughts?) and would I want another Black one?

My thanks to Norton Way for coordinating.
