Another small update ....received the rear heat shield from creations Motorsport which was spot on perfect fitment and also ties in nicely with the intake and also cleans the rear of the engine bay  ..also decided to get a hpfp guard to protect that delicate sensor but even better than that it looks great in the engine bay.

Intake looks great!
I had been considering another typhoon intake kit for my new car, but these look great! Very OEM as you say.

Where did you get it?

Car is looking great, well done

Another small update.....This time in the shape of a new drivers side wing unfortunately the original drivers side wing was in poor condition the passenger side wing was replaced by the previous owner just before a brought it so nice and new . Brought the new wing from Lothianautoparts I have never used them before but they had a lot of great feedback and for £95 new painted and delivered I thought I’d take the risk. Anyway wing arrived In very good Packaging I was impressed as for the quality can’t tell between this or the original to be fair only thing to complain about is the colour match not quite the right match so will be painting the the whole drivers side just like I did to the passenger side early on in the year looks like by the time  I’m finished with this thing I will a Have a full respray :smiley:


Old rusty wing...................

Wing looks great - white is meant to be the very worst for matching
Didn't spot the AP's going on - how are you finding them?
