    Track mode on pre facelift?

    Yeah you'd need a Bluetooth OBD2 reader and you can then display all the data through Torque

    18x9.5" and weigh in at 8kg so unless the VS5's are stupidly heavy they should be lighter than the other set ups I've used despite being much bigger.

    Tyres are on wheels now Only one wheel needed any balancing weights the rest were spot on which is pretty impressive

    Seems the tyres I ordered have gone up in price just a little... 🤔
  8. Only a very few 18" sizes are starting to appear in the S - it's really only 19" upwards in the UK currently

    Oil cooler needed?

    I'm not turbo but run an oil cooler. If you're worried about running a bit cool just cover the cooler during the cooler months. I just use duct tape on the front bumper grill over the cooler.

    Tyres ordered today for the Enkei's. I've taken a bit of a punt and gone with Maxxis Victoria Sport VS5's in 245/35/18. I chose these for a few reasons. In the Evo tyre test just gone they said they would have been the winning tyre but they didn't include them in the overall result due to them not being available for supply independently which the test rules require. They've also done very well in a recent TUV test and a recent Whatcar Australia test where they came joint third behind the Eagle F1 Supersports in second and the PS4S's in first (which would have been my number 1 choice had they been available in the right sizes). The final selling point is that they were £43 a corner cheaper than the same size Eagle F1 Supersports so, if the performance is anywhere near the tyres they've been tested against and the test results are accurate, they have the potential to be an absolute steal. I'm hoping they'll be on for Bedford on the 21st so they'll get a thorough try out on both road and track.
