    If anyone fancies an exhaust from AAS AAS - Advanced Automotive Systems Ltd - Nationally renowned for quality craftmanship its 450 for a twin box cat-back, or they can do a one-ball for less (call them for an up to date price). They have all sorts of other stuff available like Royal Purple lubricants and filters

    The new exhaust pops and crackles like a good-un. I did a before vid yesterday, i'll do an aftervid tomorrow and add them both to the thread so you can hear the comparison. It sounds awesome

    Posted an incar vid of the Hobo Hybrid induction whine earlier. Just trimming the before and after vids of the exhaust and I'll post them as soon as poss. Bit of a pain though as windows movie maker keeps crashing so I'm having to do it all from my iphone.
    Had some carbon vinyl delivered yesterday so expect to see some of this sometime soon

    It looks excellent when the sun hits it

    I'm going to be asking 1320 to do the pulley kit for me. Coils i'll be fitting myself but still undecided as to what to go for. I know AP's are the popular choice but fk highsports can be had much cheaper (368 direct from FK) and nobody seems to have anything bad to say about them elsewhere. I can only find a couple of references to them on here using the search function and they weren't much help

    This is what the new system sounds like. When I can rope in an assistant i'll do a couple of drive-by clips
