bit of an update..

well couple of months ago I decided to sell the car. as it had few mods on there namely catless DP's, FMIC, lowered H&R springs and few carbon fibre bits, i wanted to sell it stock so went through couple of days of taking all the stuff off it. worse of it all are the catless downpipes as there is very little room. anyways friend of mine with an Orange 1M bought all the power mods off me and that was that....
here are a few stock pics i had on carsales of it..











after trying to sell it for a quite low price compared to others for sale, due to mileage (117k kms) and getting stupid offers, i was having coffee with a friend of mine and talking about the car. I was basically saying its the best car ive owned and honestly do love driving it and i know i am going to miss it and wont be able to get back into another one for the price i would sell it for.... this prompted my mate to take my car advert off and me basically organising with the friend with Orange 1M to buy all the mods off him again.... (he didnt like the loudness of his Akrapovic system with catless DP/s ) and decided to sell me back the mods....

so , 2 weeks later over a weekend, we basically de-modded his car and modded mine again to how it was, FBO and lowered springs. the DP's were again a very fun job....not haha

After deciding I am keeping the car, i decided to buy a few presents for her....

Alcantara retrimmed wheel





Swapped the H&R lowered springs for some Ohlins Road and Track coils





Matte carbon Revozport boot lip





Here is a few pics of how she sits right now. Friend had a bit of fun with the camera few nights ago. The latest mod is the front splitter made by Flow Designs here is Australia.

Nice one!

I'm curious how you find both the comfort and the handling of the car with the Ohlins. I've toyed with the idea of doing the same mod, but find the stock suspension more than adequate through the twisties.

Iíve done barely any kms since installing the Ohlins but can feel a massive difference over having H&R springs only. Even on pretty stiff setting car still rides quite comfortable.

Main reason for going Ohlins is because they came up at a great price and everyone with 1M raves about them. As I also do some track events it was a good idea to get something more suitable than just lowered springs.

If you arenít bothered about the stock height then stock suspension is great.

Got some time off work so been busy with family stuff but managed to buy a few more goodies for the mistress.

I currently have a VRSF charge pipe installed running oem diverter valves but the guy I bought the Akra exhaust from had a few more goodies laying around which I picked up.

ER charge pipe. Even though I wasnít having issues with current one this one is just a nicer piece and prettier to look at haha



Among other stuff he also had a set of Akra DPís. This completes the full Akra system now but I wonít bother swapping these in cos Iím currently running VRSF catless ones.



Also got some Forge DVís which are a nice piece of kit.

As much as stock intake does a great job especially with stock turbos, I just couldnít pass on this beautiful Gruppe M intake. Such a lovely piece and really makes the engine bay stand out. Driven the car briefly after instal and can definitely hear bit more noise from the front as long as Akra muffler valve is closed haha.



Installed...



Car also got a nice detail yesterday.



Car has just ticked over the 120,000kms and doesnít miss a beat. I gave it a full service last week including diff and gearbox oils. Everything is dry underneath which is awesome.
No other plans for now, other than enjoy it on every chance I get. Hands down most fun BM Iíve owned. Love it
