EFA and re-ordered for you (imo). If I was to do it all again thats the order I would go for.

Should be getting my Buddy wheels fitted tonight, can't wait. Bet your relieved you won't have the same wheels now! :thumbup1:

Whereabouts do you go about hooning? I don't know many decent places near me :sad:

Ta haha, completely forgot about the Newman. I didn't put down the health check as its the obvious pre-mod move :p
I was a bit WTF! :lol:

Usually up through Goring, a few decent routes around there. Sometimes up the M4 and up the Swallowfield bypass around Basingstoke way.
I see, have to have a looky at some point! If you want to see the difference between a stock S and those engine mods you listed let me know ;)

Meh, just bought some new Yellowstuff's as the stock pads are going to last about another 100 miles :/
Dude, they are £205 +postage. Had I not just bought R56 S brakes I would be all over them! :drool:
Ha, sorry for the lack of picture updates. Wasn't able to get out and take pics at the weekend as was doing stuff + weather was wanketty wank on Sunday. Hopefully this weekend will be better.

Have the flywheel chatter AND release bearing groan so have been speaking with the warranty company and car is going to the transmition specialist on Tuesday to be diagnosed. Warranty doesn't cover the diagnosis cost so I'm going to be about £75 out of pocket and that's the price the transmition specialist has given me :mads:.

They do cover the cost of dismantling though which is inevitable to have a look at the flywheel and clutch. Pretty confident that it will covered by the warranty so will hopefully come out of it with a new clutch and flywheel. Been contemplating FX400 with stock flywheel but been reading mixed reviews on the FX400 in terms of day-to-day use..
It should be a ban stick offence to start a project thread without pics, even Nige can post pics now so no-one has an excuse! :lol:

If you fit a stock flywheel to an FX400 then your mental, and I will call you a pussy everyday! I've had one for years now commuting every day. The only downside is the idle rattle but it doesn't bother me, most rally cars make the same noise so meh! :laugh:

Also the pros far outweigh the cons. Better acceleration, pickup, rev's up quicker, better braking (yes braking), better throttle response, and less rotation weight is a huge effect on cars power to weight. The dual mass is wank and not good for performance! Seriously I will let you try mine if it saves you from making such a mistake! :lol:

What warranty company is it? PM me if you like. I have a warranty and have a bit of experience with a flywheel claim if you need some advice ;)

Sweet dude, looks in such good condition! Dewipered/badge already! How easy is it to de-wiper (i need to do mine!) I think this car would look awesome with a cooper bumper / zorst!! Ala...

Almost forgot...

Got pulley?

Sounds good man! Roll on the fletch! :D

Yeah he sent me a vid on friday (interior only though). It's goood.

My car with janspeed, cat and jcw a bit of outside at the start and very end but mostly interior. The snap at 9 secs is the exhaust, theres a bang at 2:56 but the camera was a shit mono mic so doesn't capture it. It used to bang like a motherfucker :lol:
Oh and btw, up Swallowfield bypass (junction 10), first exit at the roundabout towards Basingstoke, 3rd exit off the next roundabout (Wellington Country Park) = heading for awesome bit of road (some drains).
Do you mean the B road that goes from Risley through Heckfield or the A33?

A33 is decent bar the double whites + stuck behind numpty :(
haha fuckin seems like it! hopefully they'll be with me this week and on at the weekend. nursing semi.

need some help prioritising:-

brakes - still stock as a rock, have Yellowstuffs in the garage but haven't been arsed to put them on (stock lolpads are getting rather low) do I stick those on or just buy new brakes which were my intentions eventually anyway? K-sport 6-pots? :drool:
I've had stocks & good pads for a while. At first they "will just about do" if your not heavy on brakes or adjust your style. Just means slowing down earlier and using the engine/gears more. Can't wait to get my R56 stoppers sorted tbh.

However, now they are pissing me off, I can't lean on them, rely on them and with the cornering getting better and better, power going up its a more obvious flaw on the car. I would suggest sorting something beefy from the outset rather than investing in expensive ish pads for the stockers.

wheels - yoprice has his GT3's in 16x7 ET40 with 205/45/16 tyres for sale which I think could work and love GT3's - if batou could kindly do me a PS? XoXo)******.jpg

^ Mint, aero grill/m7 & de-chrome FTW :thumbup1:

exhaust - looks like its Fletcher or death for exhaust choice, not liking the stocker with the decat janspeed)
Mwuahahahah, dooooo-iiiiiiiiiiiiit!

ROFL @mr K. That is quality & true! :lol:

Cheers buddy. Hmmm, not sure, think I preferred the gold. I kinda like the chrome with the HB, maybe CC'ed grill surrounds..?
I know what you mean tbh, does work better.

Maybe just the beltline, i find this works as the black sills and beltline match up better iygwim...******-bbb.jpg

true, I've become strangely attached to them too and they clean up so well. I'm swaying more towards brakes tbh as they're a bit more important shall we say lol and the brake fluid is due a change so can do it all at once.

While on the subject does anyone know if the brake pad wear sensors are supposed to be on one side at the front, and the opposite site at the rear? As this is the case with mine from looking at the weekend. Kinda makes sense as the pads should wear at the same rate so wouldn't need to put a sensor on each wheel?
Disconnected sensors FTW :lol:

I can see one side of the pads through my wheels so just left mine disconnected tbh... saves a few pennies (like £12 each iirc!)
Yeah I'm just gonna do this, I can clearly see the pads through my wheels too, don't need no single-use sensor telling me when they're done (I'm surprised the light hasn't even come on yet). Is it just a case of pulling them out of the gap in the pad?
Yep, mine just hang free but gonna zip tie them somewhere when it's on the ramps. Make sure you do it now otherwise you'll have a permanent yellow light on the dash like me :lol:

It is fun though, when passengers ask what it means and you say "Oh its the brake pad warning light! :lol:

Yeah this one.

You done it before then? Any others you recommend?
I'm pretty sure I've been round that way before, both that and the 33. I thought that B road was a 50 limit now? Done that on a road near me that used to be NSL :(

Theres some nice roads around Guildford way, virginia water, egham, surrey etc but never get much time to explore tbh. Will have a looky...

Were not all as lucky as you Scottishers! Theres too many Southern muppets who can't drive blocking up our NSL roads, some of them crash and out NSL's become 50's. Fail :sad:
Pirbright B3012 & B3405 perfect for bedding in breaks :thumbup1:
Woking to Farnborough? Some mint roads round Guildford way back to maidenhead, think I've been that way before, not sure if it was that road or not though....
Looks mint, brakes first it is! :thumbup:
