    Differential Thud/Clunk Sound

    I remember when I bought the car I would plant my foot down (in 5th and 6th) and would hear a thud. This was the start of 2017 and the work I only had carried out till now to do with diff and transmission is fluid changes for both and clutch change. Ive only just changed the diff bushings recently but haven’t had the noise in a year now I would say

    Differential Thud/Clunk Sound

    Iirc I had this when I bought my 2007 HR and the only thing I did to the diff was get Horsham to change the diff and transmission fluid. I can’t remember hearing it after that but didn’t really notice it before. Might be worth changing the fluid while it’s in the garage. Sorry can’t be more help haven’t had the noise in a year and didn’t do anything but fluid change to diff

    Radiator Fill and Coolant Bleed Guide

    I had a hard time bleeding my system and found a spill free funnel that helped sort the issues of trapped air. Hopefully this will help others if they have any trapped air: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lisle-24680-Spill-Free-Funnel/dp/B00A6AS6LY

    toyosport exhaust

    Got one on mine and had it for a year+ with decats, I personally love the sound (very raspy but decats so expected). Fitment is dog s**t, one exhaust tip sits lower(very noticeable) then the other and has a rattle now with heat shield. Had one previously on my RX8 and same fitment problems again. Get what you pay for though, think I got mine for around £230 off eBay

    I might see you around, never normally that side of Southampton but I do a few occasions :). Yeah I rarely see a 370, see mainly 350’s. Yes I will be down Beaulieu on the 29th but won’t be taking mine down :( if your down there I’ll be sure to come over to anyway and say hello :)

    Reapplying for licence

    I guessing I missing that Yeah but you can do 100 and it just feels like cruising along. If your not prepared to pay the consequences then don’t do it as I learnt

    Reapplying for licence

    Yeah anything over 96mph is instant court summons. I’ve seen the guidelines for court but it’s always up to the judge on the day. Was just me on my own being stupid trying to get somewhere to quick. I don’t believe you can get arrested for for speeding as I know people who have been done for 140mph and just a court summons. Pretty stupid really as he pulled me over and reported me and on the way home what’s stopping me from doing 100+ again and possibly crashing
  15. Thanks, I’ll guess I just have to get the ABD bulbs save money in the long run
