Re: 08 Exige S 240 in Starlight Black

Black (shiny, no scura love here) is absolutely the best car colour.

For 6 mins after you've washed it :mrgreen:

Re: 08 Exige S 240 in Starlight Black

Fantastic start to the thread, looking forward to more. I feel your pain on the pedal feel. I believe mine to feel "ok" and then I drive a k series car even just to reverse it out of the way or something and the feel of the pedals makes me feel miserable, they are so so much better than th...

Re: Heatsheilds

Yeah I've heatwrapped exhausts for all of my modified cars. There are horror stories about them retaining moisture and rotting stuff through, but providing you're wrapping a half decent condition system that's not already starting to rot out, I doubt it would be a problem. I've certainly never had i...

Re: 2006 Exige S

Wonky wheels annoy me a lot, I've taken cars back to alignment places before to sort it after getting my fancy printout saying everything is perfect. Just sat in my garage it's obvious how easy it is to not line it up right, the tiniest play in the rack or play generated between the tyres and the fl...

Re: 2006 Exige S

Chapter #2, alignment. Bit of a dull update this, but I enjoyed the process. I love having a go and doing bits myself, but some things are always just worth spending the damn money on. I honestly believe suspension alignment to be one of these things, the theory is simple - but the conditions requir...

Re: 2006 Exige S

Oil Seal adventure update. This is what I was dealing with, camera lighting doesn't show it but it's a nice clear drip running from the driveshaft seal down and collecting on the gear cables. https://i.imgur.com/vsZFIVa.jpg?1 I waited until I had absolutely everything I thought I might need before d...

Re: 2006 Exige S

This gearbox is fighting me all the way :) Oil leak from the sump plug has definitely resolved with a proper crush washer, but I've bought some dowty seals for the next time I drop the fluid.... which will be this week :lol: I've got another leak, from the NS driveshaft seal. I've cleaned it off a b...
