  1. I would see if another red gt86 wants to swap boots with you. Lots of people want a plain boot to add their own spoiler on without having to fix the holes that are left behind by the standard spoiler. Changing boots is a very simple job of a matter of a few bolts on the hinges unplugging and chasing through the wiring for the number plate lights and changing number plates.

    Post your GT86 / BRZ pic of day!

    Little trip for a walk round one of our local manor houses. Living next to the peak district has its perks. Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk

    Quesstion about wheels modification

    Yes I use 25mm spacers have done for say 30k miles had to replace my rear wheel bearings at 65k. Have they caused it, I would say no but they will have reduced the life for sure. Most wheel bearing need to be replaced around 100-120k miles but the variables such as road surface amount of high speed cornering/driving make it impossible to compare bearing life on different cars.

    Just a note Luke I use a screwdriver through the disc vanes wedged against the calliper to torque the front spacer nuts. Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk

    US vs UK prices.

    I've always been stung at customs from the half a dozen things I have bought. If your buying from US expect to get taxes and customs charges every time. If you don't get pinged then your very lucky. Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk

    Coilover help required

    I must admit my experience of most aftermarket coilovers especially with solid topmounts is that they are noisy. I get the odd knocking with my tein Flex As at low speeds on minor bumps but I put that down to them being the cheaper end of coilovers. Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk
  9. Yes pal that would be fine as long as each axle is equal. Most tend to go for et35 with 8 inch wide wheel which is 11mm further out, you can put a ruler or tape measure and check to see if yiud be happy with the offset. But I like your plan of getting 2 new wheels, likely they will be slightly different colour so budget 250 for a refurb Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk
  10. Are you looking to replace all of them or just a single one? If your looking to replace all then you can go with whatever specs you like. If you want to replace one it sounds like you've got a challenge, if the colour is the same you could buy at et48 and use a 2mm spacer, maybe. Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk

    Daily driven/ track day brake pads

    I use rbf600 as its simple and easy and to have the piece of mind that your fluid won't boil on track is worth the couple of extra quid cost on fluid and to do a yearly change. I haven't don't lines yet. Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk

    Daily driven/ track day brake pads

    BBK will be vastly different to stock brake. Pads won't reach the temperature you get on stock pads as fast due to more metal absorbing the heat. Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk

    Daily driven/ track day brake pads

    Hello mate I use ebc yellow stuff on the rear with pfc z front. In no way are these track pads but will survive on track longer than OEM. I have no issue with noise daily driving. The pfc z pads do get spongy after 15 mins on track I tend to push another lap then come in. But also note I'm a rookie track day driver. The answer that is obvious is that there isn't a pad that does both well. Best idea is to run two sets of pads. Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk

    TRD Spoiler

    If anything it is probably ingrained dirt that would come out with a clay bar and some polish Sent from my COL-L29 using Tapatalk
