just decided to order the carbon spoiler from MLPerformance and i have noticed that zunsport are now listing grill kits for the m140, so ill be getting some of those too to protect the rads/coolers on track.

My center zunsport grill arrived about 15 mins ago, and it is already fitted, quality and fitment are really good took less than 5 mins to fit, i think it looks rather smart too,

thanks mate, i have to say i wasnt too sure when i first ordered it, however the look and fit are great, and i am sure it will add 50% protection, i have found rocks sitting in my front grill before just in front of the rad :shock:

Look forward to seeing what you think of the strut brace.

Thanks mate, it may make no odds however the rear under body brace made a nice improvement so we shall see, depends how floppy the oem chassis/body really is, now its on more sticky rubber i dare say it will show up the chassis/body strength issues more.

okay...

so since MHD have now released their software so yesterday was a rather expensive day for me.... the following has been ordered

VRSF 200 cell sports cat
MHD FLASH & APP
cheap android phone and connection lead to do the mapping....

should be good for another 30hp and 10nm over my current stage 1 tune and standard cat...


still waiting on the ultra racing strut brace though :cry: was meant to be a 4 week wait..... so far we are at week 8!

Finally the UR front upper strut brace has arrived..

Got to say i am not overly impressed... the paint finish on mine is poor and fitment wasnt great... however its on, time will tell if its made any improvements..

Lovely that. Im afraid I prefer the OEM wheels Exactly what Im lookiing for - just the diesel version.

many thanks i too prefer the oem wheels, however i needed another set for track use and the "M" style ones were less than another set of oem so i went for those,

on track the car gets about 6/7mpg, on the road it easily gets mid 20's, in fact it has got better since the remap, currently in the process of going stage 2.

Look forward to hearing of your results, stage 2 should make an already fast car even faster 8)

AD08R’s are great. When brand new you’ll get some impressive G and lap times out of them.

What pads are you going for?
