Don't want to ruin them.
I even have some purple polish for them now.

If I don't use it, I can buy more upgrades :D

Time to refurbish my wheels...but do I have them re-done in silver or something else?
I have taken off my feds & have these temporarily.

Thoughts please about feds in this colour?

Careful. All that talk of purple wheels will end up giving him a purple hood.

Just went over this entire topic, interesting to read about your experiences.
Boost creep / Piper downpipe / porting wastegate / ... are in the picture recently...

Your interior looks nice !
Wheel Color... always hard to give advice in colors... I like the Gunmetal Grey.

Some questions from my side :
One of the first posts mentioned drilling the gauges.
You drilled the holes at the bottom or top ?

Eibach springs and Nitron dampers...
Are you happy with the performance ?
Is it a fixed kit, or adjustable in ride hight and/or damper settings ?
Who sells them (and at to what price do they come my way) ?
Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary… that’s what gets you.

Thanks. They are not to everyone's taste.

I'm undecided at the moment. I won't be taking them in to get refurbished for a while, maybe next year.

Top. I didn't remove them. The boost gauge was a little awkward to get at. It has provided a little improvement but nothing major.

I like these, but they were not cheap. My kit cost just under £1000 but it was their prototype so I got them fitted free & VAT went up before the others became available.
I think the price is more like about £1300 now.
They are adjustable for height by rotating a collar around the threaded mount.
The dampers are adjustable from above so the adjusters should not get clogged up with dirt. I adjusted them for the first (& only) time about 18 months after they were fitted. It took me longer to open the bonnet & boot than it did to adjust them.

Downpipe/overboost.... I am reading with interest about the downpipe but not committed to anything yet. I am actually quite happy with the way it drives now so am hesitant to make changes.
