Oh I am sorry.. I'll give my work out in future then.. infact the car keys are here, anyone want to take it out for a bit?

I may do desktops sized images in the future Ben smile But not just now, sorry
If you'd like to pass the keys I wouldn't say no :P. On a serious note though, that's no problem at all matey no worries smile.

Wow, that interior is lovely. I particularly like the custom gauge set, fantastic work on that!

What'd you use to cut the rear bumper? It looks good!

Also, is that the standard exhaust?

You asked that on FB too right?

Anyway just incase my reply was 'Stock bumper yeah. FM exhaust but it's much like a standard one..' smile

I did yea, thanks!

I can't wait to do the same to mine. I looked through and found quite a few people have actually done it, and it makes the rear end look much better.

What did you use for the front splitter?

The splitter is from a Renault Laguna, carefully massaged to fit the '5. Its the non vented type thats all, suits better without the vents imo.

This isn't exactly up update on progress on the white car, more my own developments smile

So, this car is owned by Roddisons Motorsport, but I was lucky enough to get a drive in it last weekend..


Racing at Croft with Max5Racing!! Big Smile



What an incredable weekend it was! I qualified 1st in class on a dry track, with the car still in its soft wet setting! Race 1 saw me battle from the front with Rob Chilcot througout the race, until Rob spun leaving me to take the class win home Big Smile

Race 2 was completely different, and very wet! Bad enough for the track to be pumped between races, needless to say visability was very low! Anyway after a great start I passed Jeremy H on the inside and continued to hold him off for the duration of the race. Another Class Win and finishing 4th overall (ahead of several MK3 cars)

I was a very happy chappy!!



Thats my first ever Race too - 3rd time I'd driven the car!

I took the car Drag Racing at York Dragway at the weekend.

Its the first time I've ever driven a Dragstrip tbh, though I've been going to watch the sport for almost 25 years!

Its more difficult than it looks too, as the slightest change means you lose out on your times. Say you get the smallest touch of wheelspin, that means that run is down a good half a second straight away. etc etc.. Its amazing how you soon find yourself chasing 1/10th's of a second

My best time was:

13.7488 @ 101.17mph
Best 0-60 was 5.54sec
