    Latest Mods....

    I've been told that these are the only set in the country at the moment, (probably not though ) ....



    Postert carbon covers, perfect weave and excellent fit. Looks pretty cool IMO

    They probably are the only set in the country! There were none when I enquired about 3 weeks ago

    Looks nice though!!!

    At the price though, I won't be getting them for a while yet!!!

    They look really nice m8.

    Although i'd have had the pipes anodised pale blue to match the opc plug cover.

    That exhaust manifold could do with tarting up a little too

    Are they just covers that push over, or are the original pipes encased in the carbon?

    The blues arent a bad match in the light. The pics are a little deceiving.

    The manifold cover now can't be taken off ! - the bigger intercooler fittied, means that the rad and all the pipework has been pushed back into the engine bay. I have manged to get the bolts out, but the cover cannot be manouvered out at all. The one saving grace is I'm due to get a chrome cover from Pete on the RR day, so that will hide much of it.

    The carbon bits are only covers. They are bonded onto the original parts with a high temp special bonding agent. The TB one has been bolted through aswell. Both are excellent fits, and were a little ££ - but when Karen told me they were the only ones I just had to have them !

    sorry for the crapola description of pipes m8, i wasn't refering to the blue air pipes, more to the ones you've covered with Carbon.

    Have you a link for the place that did the carbon stuff?....wonder if they want to do a CTR front cover
