Bar & plate are much heavier than tube & fin IC's

You must have a nightmare of a driveway entrance, if 5Kg's can make the difference with scraping..

Agree larger and more efficient fmic would help greatly in delivering cooler air and more efficient engine temps. But that much difference?

Stage 3

Here is the link:

I actually only installed the metal part of this, as the plastic/rubber plate made it too high for my feet

That heel scuff plate looks great! Mine already has a nice flat patch where my heels have dug into the carpet so this might be a solution haha... matches the BMWP aluminium pedals too!

Yep, scuff plate makes driving much easier, as heel isn't stuck in divot made in carpet from normal driving. Great little mod for any MT

I hear your frustration Ian but... two things Damian at Final Inspection told me NOT to do were:
  1. Never use a mop/brush to wipe down your car and
  2. Never use a car cover, no matter what it is made from, it will scratch/swirl your car
I wanted to buy similar many times but r e s i s t e d so far

I hear you John, I had the same concern. If you put this cover on correctly it won't scratch the car. The instructions are very specific on how to put the cover on and how to remove it.

I also use a California duster ...never scratched or swirled. See http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/pr...nia_car_duster

New Wolf's product... "The Mask". Spray on film. Highly recommend for road trips and track days.
