So update, i have fitted new front tyres and got 14k miles out the old front ones.
Still got ABS issues and will be taking a closer look as i have noticed the rear brake pads are almost worn away. Got a feeling that i may have a wheel bearing issue as i get a slight squeak from the rear left wheel under turning in right direction only!
Pretty sure i need to get another abs sensor for right rear aswell.
Going to fit Mtec discs front and rear without drill holes as they seem to do a very bad job of drilling discs. Will be fitting some decent pads, so thinking PF front and mintex rear or am open to ideas.
Also going to fit some braided lines and flush the whole system with good fluid.
The car drives really well and rewards nicely when pushed on a bit.
Clutch is getting really high so i need a new one, so going to time this with 6 speed change.
Dan may be getting an engine delivered for timing belt change aswell haha. Although i may just take the car down.
Other downsides at moment, i am missing the remap as the car needs some little gremlins sorted to support the map better.
I have been using the car to tow a trailer and have noticed i am rubbing rear arches alot. So have contacted AP suspension for slightly longer and stiffer springs for the rear to help load carrying a bit more and level the car out so i stop wearing big holes in the arch liners.
The other day i also ripped off the standard rusty backbox and fitted a striaght through mild steel pipe i made at home with left over exhaust parts. It sounds soo much better and does make people look when lifting off throttle and getting turbo whistling through exhaust haha.
