Picked it up from AKS on Friday after having the H&R Monotubes fitted with TTRS top mounts, Vagbrem discs all round along with the refurbed ED30 calipers I had previously bought.
First impressions on the Monotubes are excellent! Will definitely get some on the Vento next year  :party:







Thinking of selling the Monzas as I've found a nice set of 19" BBS's but no rush.

Future plans are to get a Revo map next time its at AKS and sort some body work issues (respray bonnet, sort bubbling wing, R32 style rear with no exhaust, side skirts and ED30 splitter).

Cheers, AKS suggested them. Plus they are cheaper than genuine replacements.

Rang AKS last minute today and booked it in for the Revo map. Rude not to when it was 25% off  :driver:

The TTRS top mounts are more robust and less prone to squeaking with wear. :wink:

Went back to AKS Weds afternoon. After several attempts Alex finally managed to load the map. Drives so much better now but still feels a lot slower than my Audi  :ashamed:

Will see winter out then will tidy bodywork and add a splitter and skirts  :happy2:
