Re: Clap's vRS: FMIC

A few new things to update. Fitted new front tyres, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2. They have been getting rave reviews so gave them a try, they definitely live up to the reviews. Although they are rather soft so I doubt they will have a very long life. Also had the air con regassed. Such a nice lux...

Re: Clap's vRS: Remap!

What brembos are they if you don't mind me asking? I'm trying to find a set that will fit under my 16" wheels and they look like they have plenty of clearance under those 17"s.

Re: Clap's vRS: Spacers

Fitted some spacers to it today, 15mm on each side on the front, and 20mm on each side on the rear. Sits much better now and also allows me to fit brembos on the front. Also gave it a quick clean and a wax. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8202/8235684274_d439325a73_b.jpg http://farm9.staticflickr.com/...

Re: Clap's vRS: Fresh Paint

Yeah Stage 2 is the plan. 8)
Also plan to get super pro bushes all round and a rarb.
Although not until at least later next year as my insurance would just go sky high.

I travel 90miles a day. So really its perfect for what I need, and its always a joy to drive.
