    Sorry to see that! even more so that it's the 2nd time. Hope it's sorted without too much hassle

    Wheel Offset

    I can’t comment on handling etc, but spacers would be a modification and would need declaring to you insurance company. I guess it will depend if your insurance company are mod friendly.
  3. While looking to buy my 86 I visited Jemca Bracknell and was really surprised at how poorly the car they had was prepared for sale. Was approved used as well! May or may not be an indication of their standards as a whole, but it gave me a poor impression of the place!
  4. No, just happened to need to come out this way for work today. I live in rainy Northamptonshire.
  5. As title, Spotted today Just before 10am, Had gold wheels, black bonnet and plenty of other mods. Looked and sounded good :-). Anyone on here?

    Torque settings - changing discs and pads

    Fitted the pads with my 15 year old Son today, let him do most of it. Went well given neither of us had done a pad change before. No more sqeaking brakes! Thanks all for the tips and guidance. Gonna be a bit more adventurous tomorrow if I have time, I have new front discs/pads and offside front wheel bearing to fit on my other car.

    Torque settings - changing discs and pads

    This lot turned up yesterday. Gonna be a busy weekend. My Son is helping so should be a good learning curve for both of us.

    One more question, can the pistons be compressed back into the Calliper, or do I need a rewind tool? Thanks Darren

    Torque settings - changing discs and pads

    Thanks all. Will drop in Halfords and get one of their advanced torque wrenches. Get 10% discount which always helps!
  12. Hi All I will soon need to replace my pads and possibly discs also. can anyone tell me the required torque settings for the various bolts please? I also need to buy a new torque wrench, but have no Idea what is a good brand so any recommendations are welcome. Thanks Darren

    Hi All, thought Its about time I registered on here, already a member on the owners club forum, no harm on in getting the best out of both! I have a 2016 GT86 in black, new to me in November last year, and am absolutely loving it! Previous owner really looked after it! Mods so far are very tame, Cosworth filter and Valenti V2 sequential tail lights. Planning on few more mods to include a new header and exhaust along with some coilovers and a new set of wheels. I hope to get to some meets and catch up with some like minded car enthusiasts. Have a good weekend all! Darren
