VTL - Legend

Just thought I'd put up an appreciation post for the one and only VTL - aka Vincent aka - YODA

Not only has Vincent helped me through completing some major bits of work to my 135i, but he's spent countless hours consulting and organising events for not only myself and others.

Mate, let me know what car you buy next so I can follow you about so we can continue to mod together haha! (p.s. Save up for a Cayman GT4 plz)

Notable things we've worked through that only vincent could have done:
- Installed a CSF radiator into a very tight space among PPK2 pipes and aftermarket oil coolers
- Modified fan shrouds to fit around radiator and make taking it in and out easy
- Installed Wagner Evo 1 Competition and setup piping so it has the optimal clearances
- Re-routed some air con lines and used Yoda skills to mount them to factory points with clips so its mint AF.
- Helped me remove delrin diff bushings because I've become soft and wanted some compliance.
- Changed and upgraded every shifter bushing for IMO the perfect gearshift feeling and throw

Look forward to many drive days and track events in the years to come. Time to get some kms on the thing.

P.S. Car is 'done' but we all know that's a load of BS

Melbourne guys are extremely fortunate to have access to Vince's handy skills and absorb some of his knowledge and attend the many events he organises!

Great bloke he's also helped me a lot on my build
