Yes mate. I've not had a proper chance to take it for a long B road blast yet :( (bloody snow) but it feels much better now with the gearbox sorted, and new clutch fitted.

Let me know when you're going for a drive and I'll join you. Still haven't driven the Meg hard yet.

*****Small Update****

Under construction stickers arrived Xmas eve.

Today me and the GF bought a new daily driver a very tidy Red Fabia VRS, loving the low down torque and looking forward to Thursday evening when I can take it out for a proper blast!


It looks just like the above.

So that means come the weekend I can hopefully/ finally fit the RS Sabelt steering wheel (Had it upstairs since March 09!) and remove some weight out of the back of the car.

Speedline 2118's will also be ordered this week :approve:

Really nice car mate and i had a drive in the Fabia VRS was quick but felt a little heavy in the corners but non the less mint :)

keep up the good work :p

Yeah I can finally start doing the stuff I've talked about for the last 2.5 years...LOL.

Not 100% sure if I'll be a SSR.

Quick Update.

New daily driver purchased, so can finally start making some changes...

Speedline 2118 wheels in anthracite (finally ordered) should have them early next week, just need to decide on what tyres to fit R888's are on the shortlist.

I need to buy a steering wheel boss, and Ph1 indicator stalk so I can fit the sabelt cup racer wheel (been sat in the spare room since last
And I am also very tempted by the Orcea Group N race exhaust, as I fancy a bit more rasp, and less drone :evil:

And still can't decide between Carbon/Kevlar Corbeau Revenge and Recaro SPG buckets :S

So hopefully by the spring it will start to come together quite quickly! :)

Don't bother with r888's. Too much grip, car won't move around as much. If you go out on track, it's about having fun, not chasing tenths.
In danger of an 'all the gear' situation ;).

^^^LOL mate.

It's not going to be a tarts car, I Will be tracking it this year :cool:

I'll have to have a sit in yours mate. IIRC you're running Corbeau Revolutions aren't you?

I do really like the look of the SPG's (I <3 recaros) but think these Carbon/kevlar Revenge seats look awesome TBH.
