I have never really messed with the sepia and b/w affects before but with an 'old' background you wasn't half right mate, they scrub up not to bad.....

Have you waxed it? Looks great.

Would love to get a couple of more pictures of the car and wheels in the sun. ;-)

I don't think I will paint the wheels. They do look stellar. My plan is to wait a little bit as I will probably scratch them sooner or later. ;-)

It is in need of a full paint correction which is booked for late March with a mate, but I have done a bit of a tidy up by hand, clayed, polish, Chemical Guys EZ creme glaze acrylic and a couple of coats of Celeste Dettaglio wax with a few coverings of Jetseal 109 on the wheels, something to get through winter........

Will try on the sun pics but not alot of sun about at present and it's bloody freezing lol, also the car is currently up at Forge Motorsport, but will see what I can do

Looks good Shane How much lower are your air intake temps now?

Also would you mind letting me know how much it was fitted as I may do the same, after my wheels and other bits are sorted

Lowered the intake temps by 15deg Chris,)on a cool day mind you) but up to 30, as for price I am not sure yet mate (around the £800 mark) as Forge have not officially released it yet, as for fitting, if you know the way around that area and can get underneath, its a straight forward job dropping the undertray, unbolting the oem jobbie, unclipping the 2 hoses and then inserting the uprated cooler and using the same mounts and fittings

Not cutting or modifying the area, it uses the same mounts and hoses, so it can be changed back over in half an hour if you need to put the car in for any warranty work, no need to even remove the front bumper, just the plastic under tray.....

The OEM core is 510hx130wx110d where as the Forge core is 530hx150wx130d giving 20% more surface area and 41% more volume than stock. The core is of bar and plate construction, with aluminium end tanks.
In the construction Forge use CNC machined bayonet couplers which allow an easy plug and play install. No cutting, no modifications required.
