    Just a few pics of my track day car. Probably stuck this in the wrong part of the forum, but hey it is a track car.

    Nice car man.

    Any particular reason for why you removed the Nav?

    Thank you

    It is all about weight saving, none essential modules/wiring have all been stripped out, including all the interior, roof lining etc except for the front door cards (they are on the list for removal when I can find a suitable lighter replacement), and all internal sound deadening has been painstakingly removed from floor and panels. I have even chopped out the rear parcel shelf, and all the heater box surround in the engine bay is gone as some of it weighs a lot!

    Thanks for the praise.

    Bought these from germany, very easy to fit once you have cut the original backplates off, also very light being made of alloy, all parts included in the kit.

    Used Hard Motorsport front air ducts bought from martin - site sponsor ms motorsport - as he was the cheapest by far, then just bought some 3" twin wall flexi hose from ebay.
