Update for today. Got my new 20" Rims delivered on Friday. Fully cleaned, polished and tyre dressing applied. Popped in to John-ST3 on saturday to remove the RS alloys and spacers. Got the new wheels on no bother.

Got some black centre caps on route... They sent the wrong ones. Happy to note that the tyres are quiter and the ride is the same as on 19"s!

Also got my unique JM Motorsport MK4 induction kit fitted. RS K&N mated to part of a new aurbox. Sound wicked. Can really hear it sucking in the air... Plus I can now hear the waste gate dumping too!!

I think no and I think you should get rid of the upper grill and the lower grill............ I know someone that would take them off you hands ;-)

 

Joking aside I like them but I think they'd need to be panther black to match the front end and wing mirrors

About the open (no heatshield or encapsulation) underbonnet K&N/ cone filter -

 

The cooler the air going into the engine the more power it makes - cooler air contains more oxegen per CC or cubic inch, = more power - that is (basically) how intercoolers work

 

The open cone/ K&N air filter you have fitted can (and will) draw warm/ hot air from the engine bay, loosing power, in certain conditions, like when the engine is still warming up, it may be ok, in other conditions, once the underbonnet temp rises/ like once the engine has warmed up/ sitting in traffic etc - you will loose power

 

In extreme temps it may even cause pre-ignition / hesitation and the ECU may even back off the power, etc to protect the engine

 

When you have your car dynoed, the operator often opens the bonnet so that the open, underbonnet cone filter does not draw warm air, this does not reflect real-life conditions (unless you normally drive around with your bonnet wide open!) - the car should be dynoed with the bonnet closed, you will then see how much power the open filter causes, dyno installations often come with massive fans or refrigeration units (because, as above, cooler air = more power)

 

diesels run hotter than petrol-engined cars, the engine bay is often sealed and the underbonnet temp can "sky-rocket" the optimal underbonnet temp for a diesel is 100-130 degrees, the optimum coolant temp is 95 degrees,(some run at 88 degrees) the optimum intake temp is 6 degrees

 

Often open K&N filters are re- situated in the wing or in front of the radiator, cool air feeds added or heat shields, or isolated from the underbonnet heat, once they are warmed up, you could vent the bonnet but its not ideal for a diesel

 

A fully- encapsulated filter like a pipercross venom or BMC cda would work better than the open K&N

 

I would be surprised if Collins don't tell you the same/ a similar thing

Interesting.... Will have a look about... Maybe see if I can modify a CAIS system to fit?? Thanks for the info.

Was great watching these two work... Vinyl is weird stuff. Can't believe how much abuse you can give it.

Going to get my diffuser done as soon as I have some extra cash.

That roof looks so good !!!

Would you mind getting some pics of it in the day light too :-)?

Really debating if I want to get mine done... Just don't know if I have the guts to do it ?

Can I just ask if you have modded a car like this before?
If so when it came to selling it was the value in price any different ? Also because obviously some people when buying a car don't always want things like that which I guess lowers the interest a bit too which could make sales a longer process ?
