Hasn't been washed in around two months if I'm honest :lol:
I've lost interest in it, will wash itself in the puddles

Lenny if you lived closer I would relieve you of those alloys  :(

With the Avon ZZ3 tyre and 1 piece steel nuts there sitting at 475euro per corner facelift alloys from ford secured with McGard lock nuts not ford ones lol
There stuck on there, aswell as richbrook anti lift valve caps,
So haters can't deflate,
Also richbrook anti theft reg plate screws with steel pressed plates,
So if ever successfully stolen, they can't change the plates without a special key,
And if the car catches fire, the steel pressed plate will still be readable.

Thanks though :)

Theirs an old saying I use if it was built by man it can be fixed or defeated by man. I haven't found a wheel nut that wont come off yet, yes slows you down but over the years removed a lot. so until you tell me there made by a higher intelligence like Aliens I wont sweat it mate LOL. in all serious its a sad world when you have to do all this so they will pass your car and pick on somebody elses, if I could get away with it, I would wire them to the mains.  ;)

Thankfully no attempts to date,
But always prepared.

Moving Forward,
In my best possible "David Norris" impersonating voice .....
As most of you are now aware I'm moving to Toyota.
It will be my new project and main hobby now the focus is complete,

As result I have resigned from the forum as a moderator,
I have also disabled the PM feature,
And removed my signature so it doesn't fill the threads.

I am losing interest in the blue oval after three years of 24/7 dedication
And the creation of 28 detailed guides its starting to become repetitive and no longer feels enjoyable more like a duty.

I will still be online but only for the fun and enjoyment of communicating with fellow users,
I won't be updating links to items previously linked
Or answering PM's
I'm done :)

Lol its cool mate,
Some day you will move forward too.
Life is a process
Car modification is a process,
Perhaps car modification is an addiction oor an expression of ones inner self lol !Removed! knows
All i know is my hands are idle anyways so I'm moving forward,
The guides are still viewable on the forum,
And a full list of mine can be saw by clicking on my aviator image,
In the event the images stop showing from time to time in the guides,
That's photo bucket seeking payment to continue displaying the images,
And eh, I won't be paying that neither,
So I think they come back by themselves after a week or two if unpaid.

thanks Kurt, the combination of big rims and lowered suspension great helps the handling but still has slight under steer however this is said to be greatly improved by fitting a white line rear sway bar, but not a front one aswell just the rear sway bar.

Thanks guys,
I'll upload some pictures of the Toyota in december,
Perhaps a video too lol
