That interior looks mint matey. Is your centre vent holder a home-made jobby? Looks sweet.

Hey blue,  I made those last summer out of carbon fiber so they matched the rest of the trim.

Thanks for the pat  :lol:   was a while ago I did that.. luckily it worked out ok.. thats the best thing about these cars,  playing around with bits and seeing how it ends up.  Then change it again a few weeks later   :wink:

Not much to tell you,  I wanted to give the suspension and underside a good check up and clean for the new year which I do every year now the good weather is back.. It's a good idea to keep these cars fresh and they will stay that way if you look after them..  I quite enjoyed doing it again and caught a nice sun tan at the same time..  so it was a good sunday afternoon.

I used to have the green stuff ones myself..   I now use the Ferodo DS2500 pads.. very good pads and I dont get any squeeling..  its a good option to go for.

 Steve..  I'm pretty sure I got them from Demon Tweeks.. as I remember saying to the guy when I was ordering them...  'how much?!!'   :lol:  

 It was your advise when I was looking for new pads why I bought them to start with   :wink:   and hearing a few track day guys swearing by them.

 I was gutted when I bought bigger disks the last time and they looked the whiskers!  until I found out the 15" wheels wouldnt go back on afterwards   :lol:  

 I was lucky,  my nipples were nice enough to have them on page 3 of the Renault 5 weekly!
