Just feels a lot smoother in revs, it genuinely feels a bit faster as well.

Few pics from a snowy Snetterton on Saturday.. needless to say dry track tyres don’t work in these conditions! It really was like a skating rink,
Next thing on my list a set of proper wets !

Looks nice!

Can't help to think it would look better with a 1 Series Coupe bumper though....

I like to keep things as original as possible I think these look quite factory.

Might sell up this year I hardly ever use the car it’s just clicked 50k .. not sure how I could price it tho there are a lot of expensive upgrades on this car.
