Im not 100% if im honest! Ive got 15" versions of them, I will have to browse some forums and see how much they sell for, then work out if refurbing them and selling them will give me a decent profit and go from there :) lol

i like the smoked lights 8-)

IIRC the rs7's that go for silly money are usually polished and diamond cut rs7's 17"
15" seem more common and usually are battered to hell but yours dont seem to need alot of work refurbing but could probably fetch £200/250 i thinkys

Got myself a 4 inch Magnex cat-back system today off Scott (sjoyce666). Got it fitted at my old work for free. Overall, im so happy with it!! Its really quiet when driving down the road until you put your foot down, then it opens up and sounds lovely! Sounds nice on idle from outside the car too - silent on the inside.

Pics, and a vid :)

Sounds nice! And proper recaros in there as well, sweet. Engine bay is clean, hope it lasts. Look after it and it should treat you well! Good find!

It sure does sound nice :D Well happy with it! The Recaro's are just lush, best seats ever i say, better than the wingbacks by a mile :) Engine sure is clean, gave it a really quick once over the other day with some back to black stuff, come up nicely. Cambelt kit being done soon, £150 at my old work - thats at trade rates. Then a full service. Then possibly K&N induction kit to replace the K&N panel filter in there. Not 100% sure yet though, i like the standard look of the engine bay. Time will tell lol.

glad your cracking on with it mate :thumbsup:

not as load as i would have thought but its nice and subtle which is much better than these bad boy million db back boxes i have around my area :lol:

k&n is well worth it. got one on mine now and it sounds so good on full throttle. might just be me but it seems a wee bit more responsive too :insanity:

Yeah it will be a bit more responsive, i just need to find one at a good price and ill get it i think. The exhaust is perfect for me, just what i wanted, you can sit down the road at 40mph and its silent until you put your foot down lol, get upto 4k and its lovely. On idle its silent inside the car, outside it has a subtle note to it. Looks pretty smart too i think! Now then, time to crack on with some more things - strut braces ;)

Evening all, not much of an update, as i didnt get what i wanted done this week due to bad weather, and being with the mrs most of the week lol. So hopefully, if all goes well next week, i will have a nice update coming :)

Anyway, onwards with this update. Nothing much, but thought I'd share anyway.

I took delivery of this nice little bit of kit the other day, brand new, £38 posted, ebay bargain :)

Image


While i was there i gave the MAF sensor a clean too as it was very dirty. End result = smiles :) It pulls alot better now, sounds lovely on full throttle too, and has that added responsiveness too. So all in all, rather happy with it :)

Just need to give the car and engine bay another good clean up as they are both a little dirty lol.


Image


Oh and a little taster of whats to come soon (pic of it coming off my old car ;)).....
