    The number plate is hindged at the top, although is doesnt move unless lifted by hand

    Yako, i hear what your saying, its something i'll look into more for next year.

    Well after the trackday the car was sounding like a tractor when cold, but was running fine when hot, Nicely and i discussed the cause and decided it could be some bolts had came loose on the mani, or elbow or something. So i took the heat shield off to investigate, where i was presented with this -



    I now have another stock mani (Cheers Nicely ), need to get a few other bits and pieces then will give changing it a go, hopefully with some local SXOC guys to help

    Update 12.12.07

    Manifold has now been changed, this is what happened to the one above with a little bit of help -





    Also, it was my Birthday on the 6th December. Nicely is a sly guy, turns out he has recently been working in cahoots with my Girlf, so she could buy me something for my birthday, they used what i wrote in this thread and she bought me this -







    Thats is: -

    56mm Alloy Rad
    2x 12" Fans
    Revotec Controller
    Silicone hoses

    Thanks Nicely for helping sort this for her
    Just got to get it fitted now , if anyone has any info on fitting the controller etc, let me know
