    I'm considering one of those small pre painted boot spoilers to increase my rear grip with the added downforce it'll produce. :rolleyes:

    If I can save the money quickly enough I'd like to get my C207 remapped, now that it's possible to be done through the OBD port at a more reasonable fee without removing the ECU. :cool:

    I've also been trying to find out how mudflaps are mounted on the coupe too, as I'm fed up washing the sills every other day (the hazards of living out in the country). I can't see any obvious fitting places, hmm... I wonder if it's some sort of fitting kit required? o_O

    After all the *issin' around with winter alloys and tyres I think I'll be changing to the "all season" type at the next tyre change. The car just looks so much better with the silver alloys on and my oldest has been making hinting noises about my black winter set which would suit his car down to a "T". ;)

    So, a lot to research and think about for the year. I think the remap will be number one on the to do list though. :D:D

    Don't think the law will allow you to reap the benefit of that Jim :rolleyes:

    Oh I don’t know, there’s always the autobahn.

    I have done that trip from Stranraer to Belfast during my days working for Ford Motor Company, Jesus, that can be a rough crossing :rolleyes:

    You can go from Liverpool or Heysham as well (at least you used to be able to).

    Not quite the same though... 140+ on an autobahn or 140+ on a single carriageway down a mountain...?
    In my case I was in an S3 with an XK-R breathing down my hatchback!

    I know which one I'd rather be doing Alistair and there'd be no central reservation involved, lol. :D
