It's a great shot that, the splash of colour against the grey background. Car looks tremendous. The black wheels have transformed it in my opinion. Especially with the yellow calipers.

Cheers mate, I am very happy with it. I keep doing little odds and sods to it, but running out now, as I have done everything!

Just watching some vids, and stumbled across this, I've got the headers, but the decat pipes sound interesting, but maybe a bit to much!

I have been thinking about having a manual swap done, and this new vid from Doug does not help!

Think those holes in the steering column would bug me - maybe leave the flaps in :unsure:

I was just having a giggle at the yank F430's ride height, its like its still got a trolley jack on it!

Anyway, I would just get a manual steering cowling, unsure as to why they did not finish the job off properly!

Having said that I do like the F1 box, its brutal, fast and mechanical and suits the car really well.

Keep it as is. Maybe it’s the old bastard in me these days but I can’t be arsed with manuals anymore!
