    Sachs Front Dampers-New old stock.

    Yes they were. I bought them via the group buy (never used them) & sold them to Craig together with Trophy # 008

    Au Revoir

    Well I waved goodbye to # 008 today and apart from my 3.2 Carrera Club Sport, I've never been so sad to see a car go. I'd wanted a Trophy for years having had plenty of other hot hatches previously and reading the famous EVO COTY several times and of course watching the Harry Metcalfe video...

    Pink door handles, paint ???

    Got mine done when I had some work done on the car. Far better than trying to do them myself, or in isolation IMHO

    Garage updating....

    Dave - I bought some heavy duty Fortelock interlocking tiles a while back, from Mototile. Seem to be holding up very well. I didn't seal the garage floor first, but you'd want it nice & flat. Can't help re lighting.

    Trophy # 008 for sale

    It might not happen yet Andy. I'm not at all desperate to sell. The Snappy wheel is shown the last picture in the imgur folder, but the car's buyer (if it happens) gets first refusal.

    Trophy # 008 for sale

    To clarify "Lots of history" = loads of stamps in the log book + many invoices.

    Trophy wanted

    If I do put it up for sale it will be £8,500 with the Snappy wheel & unused SACHS available at extra cost. I'm not sure I want to sell. Looking on Pistonheads + Autotrader the other day I only found 2 cars for sale. The cheaper one had wrong colour wheels which I found a bit of a concern. The...

    So good!!

    Had a dive of my eldest lad’s RS Clio 200, full fat cup last night. It was OK, but nothing special. Got in the T this morning - much, much better. The T feels light, nimble, engaging -just alive and up for a good thrashing. The 200 was just dull by comparison.

    Jacking technique

    On a related point, can anyone recommend some low / short axle stands please? Mine are, I guess standard height but longer than strictly necessary.

    Going from a more powerful car to a Trophy?

    I still have my 996 GT3 and an Exige Sport 380 but the Trophy doesn’t disappoint.

    Trophy in exalted company

    Hi Ian. Not tracked the Trophy as yet - must get that done.

    Trophy in exalted company

    Thanks. Yes, the Exige uses a supercharged 3.5 V6. It's faster, lighter, louder & even rawer than the GT3, but more slightly compliant in the way it rides.

    Trophy in exalted company

    Picked up my Exige Sport 380 on Saturday. It's an absolute weapon. Until the GT3 is sold, I seem to have rather too many fast cars. Will be keeping the Trophy though - the fun factor is just so accessible. It's also got about 1000x the load carrying capacity of the Exige.
