Im supposedly picking my car up after the weekend having had much work done which includes the fitting of many uprated parts, from there ive got to drive it back to folkestone where fingers crossed my new exhaust system should be waiting, also then have to fit my engine mounts. Replace wipers and fix the washer system and generally give it a good service. Time is pressing though... What have you still got to do before the big day?

Try and change trackrod end as its seized so cannot be tracked up.

Sort out flashing handbrake light Hopefully just low fluid.

Had an oil change at weekend so will check other fluids and then abuse abuse abuse

Ds2500's are good on my car

Fad if I take you out, you'll see on my car, i'm on standard brakes, standard discs, but with these pads. The stopping power is incredible considering.

Paul your car does brake really well. Mine was like that on green stuff pads. (for about 15 mins) My brembos are on now though, but brand new disks, braided hoses and mintex oe pads. Should be interesting.
