Been quiet again as I'm always too busy and never get chance to play with the car half as much as I used to!

MOT on Friday, slight hiccup with the sports cat in that they didn't test it when hot so needed to thrash it to get it hot and scrape a pass on the emissions!

Saturday was finally time for the Ohlins - lovely pieces of kit and I'm really impressed with them, and it's also nice to have working suspension again!

I've got them set slightly lower than the recommended settings and on 10 clicks from full hard. Vast improvement over the Bilsteins so far, I can rest my head on the headrest on the motorway and not be shaken to pieces, I can get lift off oversteer a lot easier than before and it soaks up bumps a hell of a lot better. Will wait for them to settle fully then I hope to head over to Lohen for a check over the set up, hopefully minimal impact as the overall height hasn't changed much.







Back in full Summer mode - god I'd missed having tyres with stupid levels of grip! Will be replacing the Goodyears with AD08R's or PSS's before the end of the year.

Unfortunately I'm still getting a sporadic creaking noise, I've polybushed the wishbones, replaced the top mounts so that only leaves ARB bushes, balljoints or engine mounts really?? At a loss where to go next!
