  1. UPDATES: Got a small reg plate and fitted my glow in the dark Jap plate to the front, got a debadged grill sprayed it 406 and fitted that too, pics this weekend hopefully! Small 2p size rust patch forming on the rear arch so im forking £300 over to have the rear quarter sprayed and wax injected into the skins. Fitted my Japenese Kei alloys, forged lightweight purple goodness, replaced the manifold with a black one and sorted, to an extent the ile issue, still creepes slightly but no were near as bad, learnt my lesson now if it aint broke dont !Removed! tinker with it! I also got a dog called Poppy

  3. Race Logic Coilovers fitted and front and rear Alloy drop links, also got some nice Gen STI Fog Covers but they arent going on just yet. Today im going to have to raise the car slightly as im scraping really bad, this is due to the coilovers being set up for a different car, so ive booked into the specialist in Leicester for full laser alignment and fast road setup :) Undersealing to happen as well if the weather holds off, Stay tuned folks. heres some pics that are from the meet last time and also from when i went to castleton :)

  12. Never had a problem with him personally, engine swapped my old sport. did 7ft of welding and a clutch for next to nothing, gave my mum loads of free parts to get it looking good, sold me my WRX wagon, did a full rebuild after scooby clinic blew it up and left me with a 900 quid hole in my wallet for the sake of a 6 quid coolant temp sensor, i also used duncam graham who mapped my car at GR in Swinton and didnt take 3 days and blow my car up twice unlike the clinic, its all personal preference. Tony charges very little yet people expect miracles, if you want a brand new 20 year old car, go to clinic and fork over 5 grand, if you want to simply keep yours running pay a tenth of that and tony will keep in running into oblivion, youre not paying for new parts unless you specify and are willing to put the extra money in, if a used part fails he recovers the car and goes out of his way to rectify it. I think what we are seeing are people buying nails, expecting alot for sod all money and when confronted with the issues are happy to have their 'PERFORMANCE CAR OF UPTO 20 YEARS OF AGE' bodged to keep it running and expecting it to go like the clappers and never fail, if you agree to have it bodged to keep it moving, the ideal thing to do is to drive it carefully until you can afford a proper fix, most of the cars ive seen while being down at Rotherham Scoobies have been thrashed or cared for very poorly, im willing to pay for mine, just saying.

  13. At the end of the day people are always going to have had bad experiences with all the various tuners, there's threads all over with mud slinging from well respected tuners aimed at each other, You'll always get Somone who wants more than the mapper will advise or the car can take so when it goes bang they'll blame whoever mapped it. Not the fact that they ignored the advice from Mr x etc etc. Any monkey with a laptop and cable can attempt to map, (no offence ment to anyone or our primate friends) once they have the basics understood, doesn't mean they are any good, years of experience count for alot obviously, hell I'm in the process of learning about my esl, but there's no way I'd say I could tweak a map for someone or offer my services to anybody, just cos I have the cable I'm doing it purely because I'm interested in my car and how it works, At the end of the day we all have our prefered garage/tuners, I take most of the stuff on the Internet with a pinch of salt. Do your research into your chosen tuner, don't let Internet bunfights get into your head and ask people who you know for recommendations. I chose Martin to do my work because he spent 20 mins on the phone before I bought my car telling me what to look for and what to avoid etc. I'd never seen the bloke or used his garage before, but because of his willingness to answer my daft questions I had no problems with trusting him with my car,

  15. I think who people trust is very subjective, andy forrest has had some choice words to say about Duncan and personally i wouldn't trust him. But he's well aware of that I've used clinic for years and always will, some of the job's i have seen that have come from other so called specialists have been abysmal. Do clinic make mistakes now and again as well? yes, there only human, but all it takes is a phone call or a quick visit to put right and they bend over backwards to sort it. As far as needing a map after changing exhaust, bit dependant if its cat change or not. Prices always seem to be a hotly debated subject though, i do know what clinic charge for a map and why plus it is always a fixed amount, If it takes 2 or 5 hours to map is the same price, bear in mind clinic use a subcontract mapper to do most of their mapping and he has a set fee. I hear story's now and again about 'overcharing' then when you find out what's actually happened it isn't as simple, typical one is go in for x and y,z and D are found to also be an issue, now is that over charging or rectifying genuine faults? I think you can say the same about allot of places in that sense as well. You pays yer money you takes your choice :) Although it is ironic that if you show loyalty now adays you get flak for it lol

  16. Can I ask you Dan...do you have points or just passed in the last few years? Insurance cos are weird and they all specialise in their own little areas so it's a case of phoning around as Gambit said. No point me telling you who I'm with as in an old get who's had his licence since before you were born (until I worked that out I thought I was still 17 fuuuuuc). I owned a GX and loved it.
