My Day at JBS

Well i've got the Milltek on and by God does it sound meaty. Idle sounds like a subdued Impreza and from 3 to 5 it's a low meaty growl [:D]. Also had a Green Cotton filter added and the engine feels a lot freer and much more potent so very recommended. JBS were very professional and more importantly friendly. All fitted in 90 mins and I'm a very happy chappy as you can imagine.

Carlos turned up and had a blast in his REVOed beast and by God does it go! Like i told him "you've just cost me ?500" [:D] Also, any guys going there MUST get lunch at Frankie and Benny's. Yes the food is quite nice but it also seems to attract the fittest women for miles around! All good stuff [^]

So anyway the wheels... well one tyre had a rather large nail in the side so i've had to order a new one meaning another weeks wait before I have them on. Bit annoying but not much I could do.

I'll put some pics up of the car when i've go the wheels on and you'll see the transformation but for now I've added a wee one from my phone. Really looking to get this week out the way and get them on.

All work and no BBS makes David an impatient boy! [B)]h

Sound (may be crap - cant tell on my laptop at the mo)

JBS were so precise about the fitting i was really impressed. The car feels like a proper car now, not a pansy whinning engine. It's now got balls!

Forgot to mention Carlos' gear change or lack of it. I punched his Nokia kit 3 times trying to get it into reverse and 1st wasnt much easier! I gave up in the end and started off in 2nd! Really great car tho, he's a lucky bugger!

It's a new box, just missing a clip to keep it in line. I think i'll get a REVO next year some time (jan/feb). Really great to drive and was much smoother than mine. damnnit!
