    OOOH! Get some Evo 8 Enkei wheels (I think I've suggested them already!)
    I'm not sure yet, I've seen quite a few I like (usually the bronze kind of colour ones), not spent any proper time looking though! Biggest issue is that I don't really know where is reputable to buy from, so hard to check what I can get.

    • I quite like Rota Grids, would probably want black (wanted to black out most things where I can - batmobile), although I do like the bronze/gold colour.

        • Finally got my bodyshop appointment, it's going in next week. That on top of the servicing and other bits is going to make for a rather expensive month! The wheels might need to wait a little longer

            • Service work is done so got to walk down and get the car, it's been sunny every day for how long? Rain today. Back to sun tomorrow onward, bloody typical isn't it.

              • Whats been done? Sparks and oil? How much did it cost, as I assume labour will be the killer on these due to the stupid spark plug placement

                • Oil and oil filter
                  Pollen filter
                  Spark plugs
                  Gearbox oil
                  Rear diff oil

                  3.5 hours of labour to do the lot, the spark plugs are a ***** so probably took around half the time in fairness.

                    I found these ratchet straps for sale yesterday so decided to bite the bullet, they have a little strap to hold the excess strap and stop it flapping around, seemed like a good idea!
                    They also have safety hooks meaning the bit that'll hook to the trailer won't be able to slip off if it gets loose.

                    Can never have too many ratchet straps right?

                      • Cheers, I think I'm going to cut some of the straps down so there isn't quite so much and do that on the rest - I think every one is 4m and only really needs to be 1m, maybe 1.5m

                        • On another note...Hows the car driving now after the service?
                          Still thinking of getting a new Recirc valve?

                            No different, but I'm not that surprised - I think it was serviced in December but didn't have proper proof (an oil receipt doesn't do it for me) so it's likely only been 2.5-3k miles since it's last one!

                            I'm considering getting a standard one just to try it, but car is going to the bodyshop tomorrow if all goes to plan so no rush. The heat makes me not want to even look at the car to be honest, I'm so done with this sun

                            • I need more sun!!! You're due loads this week though aren't you!!

                              It's worth trying a stock valve or even a GFB recirc just to try.

                                Mate I'm sick of it, fortunately the sea is freezing so I go in there most days

                                Stock one is cheap as chips, so will try it at some point - but not sure what it'll achieve as I'll always want the noise
