Ok so the rims sold on ebay & the guy picked them up this afternoon, car is sitting on axle stands till Monday night when I pick up the Superleggera's  :cry:  ...

Odd thing about the sale on ebay was that I started at 50 & I swear I put a BIN of 100... but they sold for 155  :shock:  ...not that I'm complaining as the Superleg's cost me 100 now that means   8)

Will do some updates as it goes along :)

Only driven the car when I picked it up, feels slow at the moment compared to the old GTT, but not like uber slow & it will pull to 150mph no probs.....won't take long to change the engine spec though  :twisted:

James, will try to pop round Tues if I get the rims on :)
Just need to try to ge the rear suspension on as well at some point ..

This is how it looks today after trying to get the rear koni's on & since I've sold the hairpins..






Just waiting for the new rims, trailing arm bushes & poly rears, then it's cut the old suspension off & burn/knock/cut the remains out..lol... fit rear koni's & bushes & off I go..

Took a hacksaw to the bastard in the end, then off to kwikfit to use thier press & gas axe to cut the old bushes out :twisted:
Fitted the poly bushes & hope to have it all together early next week, put the superlegs on the front & i'm glad I got them now as they look awesome !
