  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!

  5. Maybe I should get myself back on Facebook! Nice one mate, I'm after one myself at the moment. Which track are you looking at for the 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

  26. Went to silverstone saturday morning to one of the race shops to grab some bits for my harness. Never knew was shops like this right on my door step!

    Then got the cage fully drilled and bolted to floor and harness in :smile:

  31. Nice! I've got the full 3" ktec system, I like it. Not too droney on the motorway, but sounds great through the revs, it accentuates the pops and bangs nicely too. I think you'll be pleased with it!

  33. Are the RS centres graphics to stick onto an existing centre cap or the whole thing. I was looking at some on eBay for ages and when I finally decided to get them they were no longer available.
    ...just saw it said vinyl graphics. Got a link?
  34. I found them on Instagram and there centre caps. Still need to collect from my parents. Will get pictures this weekend. just a pic from my dad lol. Sent him dimensions and design I wanted.

  35. Popped to my parents and fully fixed the cm composite splitter.. im still 50/50 if I like it. Might look for another black gold bumper as there's no going back with this splitter! Also thought I brought custom centre caps but seems it stickers still look good though 3c424d52353a448edc31f3167e7b432e.jpg 2fa4320d2bef0d1beadf6e1be2ca3a7f.jpg e87b4f2cb7be742027094c6b239de1ac.jpg 427d5be64492c303e78ec575d7edbec5.jpg
