Apologies they just look to have more tyre in the picture than normal, I thought they were 16". What are those calipers, covers or the real thing?

No worries, I didn't take offence.

They are 17" wheels, brakes are the real thing. With 310mm disks that are 32mm thick, they certainly shave off speed faster than the standard 180 setup.

At the same time as the above a new torsen type B diff was fitted, lightweight flywheel and a full service.

Its like a different car.

Certainly so Matt, top job.

One pedal to stick you to your seat, another to stick you to the dash.

These don't use spacers and fit behind OE wheels. That bodge costs about the same as the setup I'm using.

Saw your car the other day...nice intercooler.

No offence intended but IMO anything that involves spacers isn't ideal.

really should look at the picture better.... just realised that they are the willwoods :doh:

And Thanks - it is a *little* bit bigger than an OE one; and a hell of a lot more efficient :D

Just waiting for Matt to get it into the bosch pump place to make sure i am not cracking up and my pump is not on its way out....
