    The 1990s called, they'd like their camera phone back please :wink:

    As I said elsewhere, what a worthy replacement for the Trophy, unless you can afford to keep both?

    Looks very nice. But I think I am more jealous you have multiple garages!!! In Bristol garages are like gold dust.

    Looks good. How are you finding the size difference as it's a lot wider?

    Well it kind of spoils the fun of being able to nip through gaps in traffic ect, and you dont feel part of the car like you do with the Clio wrapped around you, but otherwise loving it :tongueout:

    Thanks, all is well with it still, have had it serviced recently. Been playing a bit with it already, had the center box delete, makes it a bit more sporty sounding, and pops a bit more with or without sports mode on. Also had Cooksports fitted, Vibra tec lower dogbone, upper engine mount insert, upper gear box mount replaced with a Meg 275 mount, and had one of the bolts replaced and hole drilled and tapped, as it come with an M8 bolt, and people are reporting them to fail and dropping the gearbox :worried: so mines got an M14 now :smile:, Still not got my Tibors resprayed, the alloys that are on it now, very possibly have never seen a coat of polish or wax, going by how ruined the are, and i have changed all the interior lighting to white, which looks a loads better.
    Next year will still be looking at a Wagnar intercooler, CGR Full system and highflow cat, and remap by RSTunning, fingers crossed for 300bhp+

    A few potato cam pics :tongueout: really need to get out somewhere and take some nice pics

    That's a nice list of jobs you've done already and your to do list should put a big smile on your face once mapped. :grinning:

    Nice colour.

    300 sounds conservative.

    What's achievable on these if your willing to push the risks?

    about 300bhp with no mods, about 320bhp with exhaust and intercooler, about 360bhp with injectors and hybrid

    Nice, beauty of turbo. More is just a few bits away.

    Makes chasing 15bhp in a 182 look ridiculous.
