  1. A big thanks to Bibbs for setting this up. 

    About 3 weeks ago the opportunity to get my car in Car Magazine appeared on here. 

    I took up the offer and attended the photo shoot. 

    It was a great day and interesting to see how they go about doing these photo shoots. Got to have a close look at the new Alpine too. 

    Here are the magazine shots. 

    We all know what car should of won but it wasn’t about that. 

    I just think the average joe now wants a sportscar nowadays needs all the creature comforts and woolley steering feel. 😁

  2. See you all there on Thursday then.

    Just for everyone's info. Pascal has said there is a meeting at the Menin Gate for the last post at 8pm on Wed and then going for a drink afterwards.


  3. Hi,

    I have a 220 Cup and have noticed it has developed a metallic buzz when hot. This happens more so when I have been sitting in traffic for a few mins so I'm sure its heatshield related.

    Its just been serviced at Allon White yesterday and they checked all the heatshields and said one did have a loose bolt and retightened it. To no avail its still there.

    One other thing is it seems to do it more when turning left and between 2500 & 3500 rpm. It defo seems resonance related.

    Anyone here ever had a similar issue and found out what it could be?

    I do have a 2ubular backbox but the noise seems to come from the drivers side behind the seat. Not trim related though.



  4. Doesn't add up to me so would of asked the same question.

    I really want a set for my Cup but the reason I wont buy them is because they aren't legal in the UK.

    I know adding a reflector does away with the biggest issue but i'm pretty sure all light units need the E mark approved for this country.

    The problem is when you have a crash and someone is seriously injured or killed and they carry out a full investigation on the cars.

  5. Welcome Gareth. nice choice of car and colour.

    Are you from the area? MK / Bedford? If you are you may see me floating around in my bright green Cup at some point.

    I also plan to get up to Bedford when the weather gets a bit warmer as it only a few miles from me.
