Thought I’d throw up a thread finally as I’m getting close to where I wanted to end up.

Bought this car brand new in May this year. I was tossing up whether to get a normal one with performance pack or an LE but in the end I just couldn’t handle the blue leather bolsters on the LE.

So far the mod list is as follows:

Performance mods and engine bay
Mountune intake setup and filter
Mountune lower intake
Mountune oil cap
Mountune recirc valve
Mountune intercooler
Mountune cooler pipes
Mountune dump pipe (catted)
Mountune short shifter
Mountune Rear motor mount
Boomba bonnet release
MRT custom tune of the factory computer
286kw (383hp) and 590nM (435lbft) at the wheels
Still need to do gas strut conversion

Interior
Mountune knob (gearboot still to go on)
JCR seat lowering kit on both sides
Stereo still to do. Factory setup sucks donkey cock
Mountune boot mat

Exterior
Stock apart from paint correction (by me) and a Seibon carbon rear wing

Suspension and brakes
Rotora 2 piece front rotors
Whiteline grip kit (swaybars and links) springs still to come they are on backorder

Since May I’ve only done 3900km in it but **** I love this car.

Few pics

Track day today at Luddenham Raceway. Little nervous but epic fun track.

Was quite a successful day. 45 cars entered. I was fastest in my group. P6 overall and P3 of all road registered cars. Best lap time 53.644. Not bad at all for first time out!! Car was a rocketship all day apart from the dreaded overheating RDU late in sessions 3 and 4.

Do you think the RDU cooler is worthwhile adding on?

looks great mate, i love how clean it is. what's the thing on your grille in the track pics?
Thanks mate. I had a side business detailing cars so it always has to look pretty good.

That's the transponder for the track timing on the grill.
