Not had much chance to use it sadly but am heading into the borders this weekend.

I've re-painted the grills and thats about it so far! I'm away most of August with work and then off on holidays but in September I plan on doing the following:

* New disc and pads all round
* fit AD08R's
* Decide if I should fork out for TD1.2's....
* Hunt down the side skirts I saw fitted to Craigs orange Europa as it added a nice bit of menace

Other than that I have it booked on for a Trackday in September so will see how it goes on track and take it from there. Still loving the low down pull and torque and it looks like the AC has given up the ghost (condenser?) which i gather can be a bit costly :(

Well if you head down towards Carlisle give me a shout around all weekend, good to see your car.
Condenser as you will know is a clam off job but all in all not a big job.

Will do Lee,

Went to drive back on Sunday and the CEL came on. Think the heavy rain must have gotten into something over the weekend :(

Off to a local to get it looked at tomorrow...
