Haha Connolley, I wanna buy yours, but I've never used a courier and don't know how to! Send me them please. And pics please? lol

Shaun. Cheers for the link mate! Will get one ordered up in black I think!

Noticed a good difference with the VX inlet on mate, especially top end of the rev range. It just kicks in all of a sudden like a vtec lmao! Sounds sweet too. You lose the grunt you usually get from the x14xe and the x16xe. But it just sounds a beast now lol. Changes the tone completely!

Cheers Cooki!

Well I got my oil catch tank and got that fitted.





But, to put a downer on things, I hit a pothole other night, I am not happy. Knackered one of my fresh Cesaros

This is the culprit!





And this is what it has done to my rim!





So now I need to find 1 cesaro. Gonna be a mission I think. Thinking about buying 4, replacing the knackered one, using one as a spare, and selling the other two seperately.

Gonna try claiming from the council, but not many people are successfull at it are they lol. Plus, Ihow would I go about telling them a price for new rim if they don't sell them new?

Mate thats shit I'd be very surprised if you got a penny from the council to be honest. I popped my tyre, took a chuck out of my wheel and knocked my steering out on one last year. Did everything by the book, took photos, filled out all the paperwork, gave them copies of the bills etc. about 3 months later I got a letter from Zurich politely telling me I had no case and wasnt getting a money Tried contesting it but got nowhere leaving me nearly 200 out of pocket! Hope you get on better than I did dude

I too have knocked my steering out. Wouldn't mind, I was doing about 20mph, maybe less! As the road is rough as arseholes anyway! lol.

Gonna buy two new bottom arms next weekend before I get it re-tracked, just to make sure! That was shit for you I bet mate. I don't think I will get anywhere tbh, cause the tyre is fine, and I can't exactly get a bill for a second hand rim can I lol.

Any more updates on yours Shaun? You got it on the road yet?

Worth a try anyway bud. You've got nothing to lose Not sure what you'd do about a bill for a second hand wheel either, unless you had a paypal receipt or something?

As for my car...don't ask

Got home fine yesterday mate. Went into Liverpool centre on the way back though. Took me about an hour to find the St.Johns Centre! Was getting well miffed off! And some of the roads around there are horrendous for potholes etc!

But yeah, thanks very much for the rim mate, 20 BARGAIN!

Got this from Mark yesterday. Getting tyre removed tomorrow, then in for blasting and powder coating straight away!



A better picture to show the extent of the bend in the wheel!



But last night, I decided to see if I could do anything with it. Just to get the tyre pumped back up really so it didn't end up deformed. Ended up like this, and it holds pressure! haha, so it may be used as a spare I think.



Went and took some pics of the offending pothole last night, so I can try claim something back!

Look at the freakin' size of it!







So, you may be thinking, "how did you not see it?" Well, it's a tops road, so no street lighting, its like basically on the corner, it was hammering with rain and my headlights are pants

To brighten things up a little, I fitted some Tigra clock surronds, with orange needles , just unsure if the needled have gone back in the exact same place as the old ones came off . Any way of getting it checked??



Also, got a coin tray thing out of the Tigra, that goes behind the handbrake. Pics when fitted!

c+c welcome as always!

I got the Cesaro back from powder coating and got the tyre swapped over, and fit the wheels again!

But first, I put some red rim tape on them, then gave it a big clean today and took some pics!!



Cleanliness!! And reflections of rim tape











Unsure on the rim tape. Makes the wheels look smaller . Opinions?

The gsi kit has arrived . Need to get everything painted and fit now before PVS.!

c+c welcome as always
