Just right now changed the cockpit's air filter. 5 minutes job! let's see if i can notice any difference. It was taking too long to de-humidify the interior and it would right away moister up if climacontrol was iddling on auto!

^ I did mine a few weeks ago too. I was utterly stunned when the one I took out looked quite new!

Fitted Osram nightbreakers to the main beam headlamps. If they are no good, HIDS for me!

Stood back to admire the new stance with adjustable Konis and Novitec springs. Nice 50mm ish drop. Its transformed the handling of the car.

New stance

Cheers Bora, we must rearange that meet up.
I can recomend the Koni / Novi set up. If money is no object then KW V3's are the way to go if Clogz's Brera is anything to go by, but it not cheap.

As for the exhaust give Gus at Alfatune a call, its on my to do list which keeps getting bigger

Removed the battery, added 2 tabs of Bat-Aid per cell and put it on a trickle charge. She's off the road and in the garage for the next day or two.

Hit a number plate that the car in front flicked up on the A19. One front grille now pushed out of place and cracked. Champion
