    The noise isn't quite what I expected tbh, expected louder, but the pick up diference is night and day, smooth straight though and doesn't seem to be as much lag.

    Cool! Shame the noise isnt what you was expectin. Must have a nice rumble to it. Youll have to get someone to blip it up the road & back, see how it sounds from outside to everyone else, might suprise you :)

    Well it's been a while!

    Few bits done and lots to do since PVS!

    Well I haven't spent a penny since the day of purchase maintenance wise since I bought it but car has developed an awful clunk from both back and front end so time it was on the ramps!

    Been far too busy with other bits to focus on the car but developed a stock of parts to be fitted.

    So Monday is the day it goes in, to be fitted Monday is rear 292's with new disks and pads, rear anti roll bar bushes as well so that should be the back end sorted.

    Front end also not right clever so got new top mounts, two shocks to put me on until full koni kit bought, 314s to fit with new discs and pads, and also both banana arms and uprated drop links.

    Garage has been a long time coming and the timing belt and water pump is overdue at 99k. Kit bought too so will update pics on Monday when it's on the ramps!

    Few other bits done so both front fogs replaced as they were cracked, cheers to @tipsy for the units, massive improvement!

    Also another irmy grill bought with the silver top. Was gonna replace but the plain black one didn't sell so decided to do a summer / winter change with both. Keeping them both now so will change between just to keep things fresh!

    Currently running snowies but the twin tops are in for refurb ready for the winter! That will give me chance to either sort the snowies or trade them for a set of vxrs which I quite fancy now.

    Exterior paint / body is in pretty good condition so leaving that for now! Got a few parts stocked such as vxr spoiler, xp front lip in pomegranate (boo!) and the exhaust is shall we say in construction!

    Interior is last on the list unfortunately, done a few bits such as astra gear stick and cd70 with aux and aux tray, but not really feeling the sq so will probably move that on shortly for something more current.

    Anyway, thought I would do an update while I have a spare hour, will update pics over the next few days!

    Oil and filter plus fuel filter change while your at it Dan , as for the front end check the wishbones and I would also swap the drop links too

    The rear end check the lower control arms for play I have replaced mine as that caused the clunking

    Ohh and you will need a tube of tiger seal :lol
