  3. Car looks great mate! Where did you get the cage? I'm still trying to finally get mine ready for the track after a few more years of ownership! Now thinking I need to forge the engine beforehand, as its running 302bhp and 303lbft on standard internals and I don't want it shitting itself first time out!

  6. Staying localish to me so bedford or abingdon. Im 5 miles from silverstone but far to expensive and i dont think is best track for meganes imo

  7. Silverstone is great in a Megane, if its raining or damp it levels the playing field :laughing::laughing::laughing:

  10. You keeping the Recaro’s? If not get some buckets - selling the Recaro’s will cover the cost.
     
  11. Was thinking of just 1 corbeau seat. £210 for 1 isnt bad. Im a bit of a hoarder so id keep both seats even if has both buckets

  17. Wheels look awesome to be fair!

    Not sure if the wrap on the pipe post turbo is of any benefit, the air will be hot anyway so may even trap heat? Unless it's for aesthetics?
     
  18. Hard to get a picture of them in good light.. and i give up with photobucket too

    More of a look for the heatwrap tbf. Will get it powder coated in future along with cold side which i still need to fit as couldnt get the original one out

    Just ordered some plain back centre caps to see me through untill i get my centre caps done in same colour with black logo 6341bb0adc71fc36d5068847b6c2c4fd.jpg 3ebf9fc3b843912459f4ed950cfc62c4.jpg
