Been some time since I been on here. But not that much has changed to be honest. Getting married soon so been tied up with that as you can imagine.

Anyways thought it was time to look out for a spare wheel. Hate having to put the space saver wheel on and because I work, I hardly ever get the time to replace the tyre if I get a flat. So I trolled on ebay I bought myself another penta alloy! It’s not the best of conditions I know, but I plan to refurbish the alloy to match and keep it as a spare. All in good time!

Good call with the spare, you had to use the space saver that often?

Congratulations on the upcoming wedding! :)

yeah.. twice now.. first time it was just local. the second time i had to replace on the motorway. the space saver scares me more because of the speed it says you cant exceed too. and because i work everyday, its hard to get to a garage until the weekend!

and thank you bud. cant wait. a few more bits and bobs to sort out which i hope to do today!

My old disc had it, and was literally rusting away! So I thought it was about time I invested in some new discs. Since I already have brembo pads, I got brembo discs too, to complete the look. A good price at roughly £115 for all four discs and £70 labor to fit!

And yes, I know I need to calliper re sprayed. Its on my list of things to do amongst many other things!
Performance wise with the brembo combination is that it seems just a little better. But I’m not disappointed and my car isn’t designed to be ragged about everywhere anyways. Aesthetically looks much better and I think its suits the look of the car overall.

Hope you like!
