Always thought P-Torques prices are expensive compared to the next mapper, especially surrounding the whole ambient air info Twenny shared a while back. Then again they are a reputable company and as long as you're happy with the car.
I shot them an email and apparently there's a January sale on if you book this month, 15% off, so maybe a good time to get on down there myself :o

Yeah I would say it's worth it Lewis, it really changes the engine in the car and makes it much more responsive. It wasn't too pricey with the 15% off, just under £300 I think.

So today I got my backbox chopped off and some nice 3.5" tips welded on in place by pipe dynamics. What a lovely bunch of lads and the welds and fittment are excellent. The exhaust is definately a lot louder and it pops away on overrun, it's not too in your face as it quietens down once you get into the higher revs. All in all I would say it's a nice cheap and effective mod if you want a bit more noise

3.5" might not be to everyone's taste but I like em!

Fixed an annoying rattle that had been coming from my passengers side rear wheel, the small Allen bolt on the hub had come loose and was causing a very very annoying rattle (haven't looked into what this bolt actually does) terrible I know, I've still not had a chance to take bits of the car to pieces and see how it all works yet.

Finally worked up the courage to book my first trackday in the car, it's pretty much standard apart from the remap so it will be interesting to see how the car handles on the limit. Will post up some videos afterwards :)

Well I'm home safe and sound after the trackday. What a great day of racing! It rained until lunchtime and then the track dried out for my last run of the day. I started out very cautious as I wasn't too sure how the car would handle and I didn't have any experience with the cheapo nankangs I had on, in the wet the car had good turn in and predictable overseer. In the dry I could really push the car and the standard suspension was very impressive and I had no problems with indersteer at all :) the nankangs also did a fairly good job considering they were only about £70 a tyre for 19"! The car felt very quick after it's remap and the difference between my car and a e46 m3 up the straights wasn't too bad. I ended up setting fire to my front brake pads on the last run of the day :lol: now it's time for me to get buying some coilovers, decent treaded slicks, track wheels, and some racing pads and brake fluid.

Here's the car once I got it home

Here's the video, it didn't come out great as it was dark in the car and sunny outside. Excuse the boring first couple of laps also

Looks epic fun that!
I'd love to do a track day, but don't have the balls (or talent :lol: )

Went to pick up some wheels that I can use on the track, I went for some cheap and cheerful mv1's that I found on gumtree. They weren't in the best condition so I decided to paint them black. I have ordered some federal rsr to fit to them for trackdays.

Image

Don't look too bad

And another update is that my meister r crd+ arrived today, they look to be pretty good quality for the price. They come with adjustable top mounts for camber and adjustable dampening which should mean I can still have a fairly smooth ride quality.

I also bought myself some new brake pads for my next track day after brembo pads that came with the car caught fire last track day :lol: I went for ebc yellowstuff pads as they are reasonably priced and I've used them before and found them fairly good.
Will post up some pics later on in the week once I've fitted my coilovers
