nothing better than ford blue imo, unfortunately I didn't have a choice of colors, but....
Yet another reason to hate Europeans!

took it along to a PH RR day at wallace where the car made a healthy looking 221bhp (213bhp standard)
m3 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
then i got into the polished bliss way of life and gave it a detail!
m4 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
m5 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
by this point it was on about 20k , thought it would be rude not to show off my "practically" concourse car ,so i did a few car shows with it!
m6 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
was also up a alford for the SIDC day just to show the car again , but i heard track was on so i went on just for fun! was a good laugh! (leaning over makes you go faster!)
m7 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
a wee vid!
m8 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
now by now i had got a few things done to the RS's engine , decat full system , remap and a KN
m9 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
Much to my surprise she made 300bhp !
back on track at another SIDC day
m10 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
Then came a big deal for me ! , after i had done them little sprints if you want to call it that , i wanted to go faster , rather than sit down and think about maby going to KH or that , i decided to go to the RING! lol
i spent about £2000 just on bits for the car to make sure it made it back , a heap of little bits that were bothering me and also some coilovers as i found on track i was moving a bout to much under braking ! not what you need at high speeds at the ring!
had a ace trip and made it back in one peice which is always a bonus!
m11 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
lapping in the rain!
m12 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
m13 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
little vid ! , i think this was my 6th lap, 9:45 i think was the time
, and that was it ! i was hooked on track days and speed!
so as soon as i got back , guess what! , SIDC day again! lol
m14 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
followed swiftly by a KH day!
m15 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
then because the car had been well behaved , and not cost me anything , i had a few coin sitting so bought a set of TD pro race 1.2's!
m16 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
m17 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr
