Was it hard to sell your GP?

Very nice, the seats are sick and how can you not love that JCW kit on the r56.

Thanks! Really enjoying it

Coilovers are going on either next week or the week after, wheels are on hold for a few months now though. After the snow round my way the roads are in a complete shambles which sucks! The road I used back and forth to work everyday (farm road) is full of nooks and crannies...im pissed! Probably just gonna run the R112's + 20mm spacer all round.

Wheels on the cards for the spring are those below. Want them now but no way im running just for them to get wrecked

BBS RE. 18x7.5 +42
