  1. @RedViper Do you find that changing the settings on the shocks makes any difference ? ie quieter on "Soft", noiser on "hard" ? Do you think is gets quieter as they "warm up" ? Just interested in your observations, so far. For reference, if it wasn't for the noise I'd be very happy, the car feels like it's on rails.
  2. Thanks Bibs.... i've already made contact, just waiting for a call back
  3. Thanks for the feedback ... i'm going to go have a chat with the nice people at Back on Track for a professional opinion.
  4. Seriously? Happy to accept that there is more road noise but this sounds like some is hitting the chassis with a hammer. If this is normal, they can have them back...
  5. 550 with 60 helpers on 10 clicks from soft which the paperwork said was the factory base
  6. For those of you with Nitrons ..... just spend a good chunk of the weekend fitting a set of single adjustable refurbed Nitron 46's that i got from Nitron. Rears seem fine ... but the fronts make a significant bang going over the pot holes that pass as roads in Surrey..... Does anyone have the same issue ? Is this just the lack of bushes or could it be something else ? I've just rechecked the torque settings on the struts but they all seem correct. Thoughts ? Normal ? or is there an issue.... ie my incompetence with a spanner or a possible fault ?
  7. Steve, Thanks, I have a friendly trimmer who i could use but i was hoping to be able to fit/remove without to much hassle, so will have to obtain a new map for my 350. The foot rest in the link seems to stick to the sill/"tunnel", is that how yours fixes or have you stuck it to the floor ? Thx ... Andy
  8. Has anyone fitted a foot rest to a v6? Ie a RHD Version of https://www.eliseparts.com/products/show/95/708/lhd-passenger-footrest/ How did handle the fully carpeted foot well? Did you shorten the mat and cut the side covers? Cheers.
  9. I've just acquired a very cheap set of Nitrons (single adjustable 46's) though a friend with "connections" .... they have on them 550/850 springs according to the build sheet. I see that on the Nitron website the Club Sport's are 450/600, the NTR fast roads are 425/550 and the full Race specs are 550/1100 so I'm concerned they are going to be too stiff for mainly road use on Surrey's shitty roads. What are other people running ? Are mine too stiff their intended use ? Or should I fit them and see what i think ? Thanks in advance .... Andy
  10. Thanks @MrP_ I was asking for reference mainly as i've just acquired a very cheap set of Nitrons (single adjustable 46's) though a friend with "connections" .... they have on them 550/850. Not sure if they arn't going to be too stiff for mainly road use on Surrey's shitty roads. I note that the Nitron Club Sport's are 450/600, the NTR fast roads are 425/550 and the full Race specs are 550/1100
  11. Anyone know what the spring rates are off a MY17/18 350 Sport ? (Bilstien shocks) .... I thought i saw a reference too something like 280/380 (F/R) but can't find that anymore. Thx ... Andy
  12. I can see the cover but that only corresponds with the main beam... can it do both hight and direction of the beam ? .. what about the dipped ones ? Looks to me like the whole panel has to be removed ... Ouch ... not cheap .... i'll have to find somewhere much less scrupulous !
  13. I need to adjust my headlights a bit ... is there any instructions around on how best to get at the adjusters and make the needed tweaks ? Google hasn't been my friend on this one
