Well its my birthday today and considering had piss up the other week for it and going for meal tonight with my rents i decided to give my car a clean,first time in bout 6-7months and now im in love with it again. jsut had a basic 2 bucket wash for now ill polish and clay it tomorrow as well as cleaning the inside...

cant recommend the 2 bucket method strong enough for those that dont...this is the result of the bucket used for rinsing the sponge before putting back into wash bucket..

looking at the 2nd pic looks like the intercooler has dropped an inch for some reason,will sort that out soon enough


took it for a blast and the boost leak is now sorted Very Happy run it in for a few weeks then chuck the new map on (reduced torque)
