    A Flash On The Dash!

    Guys, thanks for your comments on this. It's just something I have evidently not noticed before. Won't concern myself with it any more. I promise!

    Looking to Buy Soon

    Sorry I haven't replied sooner, thanks for the tips on the camera. The car is great, its just a shame I can't really drive it at the moment.

    Can you recall what spring rate you got? Sent from my VFD 710 using Tapatalk

    Budget Build - Kai's Primo daily

    I am super happy with the Whiteline ones I got. Main reasoning was for looks and the 25mm drop in my eyes is perfect, reduces the arch gap whilst remaining functional for a daily. Ride wise it is actually more comfortable at town speeds but when you're at a decent speed you can feel it is firmer (due to progressive springs). In my opinion, I would say the ride is overall a good improvement except for if you're going 70 and theres a decent bump on the motorway you will feel it a lot more. I guess thats the sacrifice for stiffer springs. Handling wise there has also been an improvement since you do actually feel lower and more planted, despite only a 1 inch drop. Overall, highly recommend Whiteline or any others like Tein or H&R, just make sure you choose one with the drop and spring rate you want. Like you said, a grand on coilovers is not kind on the wallet! Saving up for a house is more important

    How are you finding the springs? I'd like to lower mine, but am about as interested in spending a grand on coilovers as I am in drinking bleach. Paying off my mortgage is more important. Sent from my VFD 710 using Tapatalk

    Nice start, look forward to the progress. Dropped you a pm RE headlights.
  15. Hello all, I wanted to keep track of my mods over time for myself more than anyone really but if it gives people ideas then great! I've had the car for 5 months now and was originally 100% stock. As the title suggests, being young and not having deep pockets just yet, my build is centered around mods that are affordable and I try to get 2nd hand stuff where I can and DIY everything. Red and black is by far my favourite combination, and currently am looking to add more black bits to it. I'll show the initial photo (can't find one with stock wheels on) and the most recent one below. The list of modifications thus far (I'll include prices if anyone was curious): 18 inch ET35 RS style wheels £400 Smoked sequential tail lights £200 white LED interior and license plate lights £10 Carbon effect lip spoiler £80 Blacked out badges (free - plastidip lying around) Window louvres £15 Used Berk dual exit muffler delete £130 Used TD 2nd cat delete £80 HT Autos splitter, side skirts and rear spats £299 OEM rear diffuser (£120 new from other forum member - is £160 ish from fensport) Whiteline 25mm lowering springs £130 EBC brake pads £50 Gloss black roof and wing mirror wrap (£50 for roll - wrapped myself, was quoted around £200 from various shops) Over the next few weeks, I've ordered some smoked side markers and smoked front corner signal lights to get rid of a lot of the chromey lights. Next month, planning to get some black housing VLAND headlights if no 2nd hand ones are up for sale. Stock (except wheels): Current state:
  16. Thanks for letting me know, all sorted
  17. Cant open the link. Its says this video is private.
  18. Good morning all, hope you are staying safe. Below is the latest video covering how to remove the stock spoiler, super helpful if you are looking to get yours painted/wrapped or swapping for an aftermarket wing. Also shows clearly the holes left behind when removing the wing that you may need to know about if your new wing doesnt cover them.

    Wanted: Stock Airbox

    Not sure if East Kilbride is on your way, but have 2 sets, both from 2013 models.
  20. Looking for a stock airbox, only need the side with the metal spring clips attached. Either that or a cheap used intake would do! Location: Glasgow Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Deciding on Oil Weight

    Ok. So I'll probably be looking at 5w-30 or 0w-30, as it doesn't sound like there'll be that much difference. I'd probably just more conscious of changing the oil sooner after trackdays if using the 0w30 due to the risk of the modifiers breaking down from track temps, but I imagine as Millers nanodrive do this grade (high quality), and pairing with an oil cooler to keep temps down, could be a good move Sent from my Pixel 4 using Tapatalk

    Deciding on Oil Weight

    I asked Matt at Rogue and he said:- "In all honesty a 5W 30 should be fine. We use the 0W 30 because this oil will give you the same characteristics from cold as the standard 0W 20, but the 30 side of it gives you a little more temperature range when on track."

    GT86 Racecar build

    Hi I’m actually running a Fujitsubo / Gilken Centre Exit rear section, only the mid/front pipe is HKS, you can kind of see it in the photo below. I can say that even with the OEM second cat in place I was right on the noise limit at Oulton, so if you intend on doing a lot of trackdays beware of the exhaust you choose. I may need to do something myself now to keep it quiet.

    Thanks guys Any thoughts on why rogue prefer 0W-30 to say 5W-30 for your car@Deacon? Sent from my Pixel 4 using Tapatalk

    Deciding on Oil Weight

    @willclarke as you said I'm running Miller's Nanodrive 0w30. I'm usually doing about 6-8 trackdays a year and about 5k road miles. I run an oil cooler, Cosworth sump baffle and have the vents on the bonnet uncovered on trackdays. I can happily run sessions of 30-40 minutes without the oil going above 125°. @will300 runs the same cooling set up as me except the bonnet and comparing our temps on track last year the vents were worth around a 10° reduction in oil temps.

    Hi Buddy, Just a quick question, I may have missed that during my reading : is this a hks single exhaust you are currently running? If yes - is it quite loud? My idea was to fit it to a daily car, NA.
