buy it off me and you can listen to it whenever you like! :wink:

Which out of the steering / suspension mods had made the most improvement to the handling.

Once i have my map...then on to brake and handling. Start with springs / coilovers  or ARB / WALK?

Thanks

EX-P is good stuff

been using it a while and really adds to the depth and shine of the paint

really easy on and off too so its always quick to use but if you leave it on an hour or so you get a more 'wet' look to the paint.

all the suspension parts except the B12 kit are sold


i think the WALK was worth having and the sway bar made a difference but i thought the BS kit was crap

the B12 kit is amazing and will most likely be staying on the car as it rides much better as well as handles a bit better and looks spot on to me.

i would possibly sell it for the right money but not bothered really


the exhaust could probably go just to free us some space on my shed more than anything.

I would love to have it but I'm going on my holiday soon and my gf wouldn't be impressed if I spent some of her spending money. You are just down the road from me too

That's good to hear about the EX-P I have Tornado Red and I am looking for the wet look.
