8) love them! Slightly stiffer than the stock brass syncros but are designed to take more abuse :mrgreen:

Cheers lads :D

Yeah some cracking roads all around wales we should definitely sort something out, anything is welcome on the meets we go on.
I have been on some of the Rebel motorsport runs before too, they cover a lot of wales especially around the Cardiff area

I'm going on a Scooby meet tomorrow around North & Mid Wales so I will make sure I get some decent pics

I attended a scooby run last sunday, it was me with a couple of mates and the North wales/Chester Scooby club.

Very poor turnout unfortunately but the weather was shocking so not suprising really, road conditions were treacherous

I got my new carbon front badge fitted before the run, old badge was battered and cracked

I need to get rid of those plate surrounds, they look crap and the quality is awful :lol: straight in the bin me thinks

Few pics of the cars, not many unfortunately and I appreciate the picture quality is terrible

Cheers Matt 8) that reminds me I still owe you a video
I will get one sorted for you soon mate

It's pretty quick these days, keeps up comfortably with most boosted cars due to the really good power to weight ratio (226 per tonne)
I was hanging on to the back of a E92 M3 & 370bhp Evo 8 easily enough although you really do have to work it hard to get the most out of it

If you are caught in the wrong gear it's pretty embarrassing :lol: nothing whatsoever low down.
Sticks to the road really well too, the LSD has totally transformed it :)

Cheers Mandy 8) she does polish up pretty well, started to get back into my car cleaning now after doing very little the last 2 years
Ordered plenty of poorboys stuff to keep the paint look fresh over the winter

The plate is fairly new, I bought it last year but only got it fitted a few months back :)
Nice to finally have my own private plate

I hope the GTI is going well for you
