Here are 3 of the laps from the Ring I forgot about

Lap 1 (literally the first lap I did when I got to the ring)

Sadly the car is now up for sale..................

£6400 ono. I do have a for sale advert if anyone is interested.


12 miles a day currently isnt going to do the car any favours as its not getting warm on the journeys so time to let someone else enjoy it.

So updates from July -

Car was for sale & DPF went.

Removed it and mapped it out - the car was transformed much better on fuel and drove alot better, was alot smoother & felt like it would rev more free when you had to get a wiggle on. MPG improved a lot to!

Fast forward a few months did a long trip to Bristol / Bath area and fell in love with the car again. When I was in longleat the ques where pathetic and could of been avoided and the car got bloody hot. Stop start stop start it didnt like it, The same again a week or so later on the M56 in traffic & I had noticed a rumbling from the duel mass etc Last 2 weeks its got considerably bad and confirmed the rattling wasnt the pea in my head - its the Duel mass.

So Another massive job but hopefully this will be the last (touch wood and famous last words) Friday it goes in to be done. Along with this I am having the diff refurbished / replaced for a refurbished item as it has got a bit louder & also due a service I was about to do this myself but they might aswell do it with the bits I got as they use the same!

So in short I am going to be living on supernoodles and water for the next 6 months but at least it will all be done and should be fine to drive to Le Mans then rather than a ticking time bomb transmission wise.



Diff was changed back end of September and perfect now no noise etc.

Been simple motoring ever since. I have noticed on extremely cold days that when it starts it chugs a lot so need to look at replacing the glow plugs or glow plug unit.

I'll start with glow plugs as no record of them ever being changed but not a expensive or horrible job so not a problem.

Needs a service anyway now which I got over xmas from ECP offers so just need to do it when I can.

Still love the thing despite the rocky start
