Default A Reeve Performance review

Went to see these guys at the weekend for coilover fitting, alignment and corner weighting on my e46.

What a lovely bunch of guys, really knowledable and helpful. Set my car up perfectly. Workshop is clean and full of awesome racing cars you know you're in safe hands the moment you step inside.

My suspension was set up by Aaron and he set it what he thought was going to be right I.e ride heights and damping. Took it out for a test drive to check it felt right then put it on the corner weights and it was absolutely bang on 50:50 weight corner to corner and front to back. Zero adjustments required! Guess that's what you get when it's set up by a racing driver and a company that have a race team eh!

Believe the hype people. Definitely worth the 170 mile round trip.

Thanks again.
Alex

My supercharger fitting sorted (vacuum leak) and then the mapping to go with it.

To say I am excited is an understatement... I think I have called him twice a day so far to check up

Where shall I begin.......

Investigate overboost issue (led them to replace HPFP under warranty, which in turn meant we could do the walnut blasting whilst it's apart)

Aaron is also fitting a few new parts to the car whilst it's there

Will update the journal once I get it back
