    Seibon Carbon Fibre UV damage issues

    1. Yeah, Ive got carbon bits on my 135i that have been there at least 6 years and they still look fine. 2. Who do you work for, I run an aero recruitment company with a bit of a specialism in composites

    SUPERCHARGED

    You need more details, and a few pics. If its doing 600hp I assume the engine is forged ....... but even then it would have to be something special to see £15K IMO.

    Chris Harris TG Lap: 370z Nismo

    The thing is the 370 really isnt that far different from the 350 and thats now a 17 year old car. In the same time period BMW have offered E46, E92 and F30 3 Series, all of which are markedly different from the others (they have all had LCI/facelifts too and theres a new one out next year), even Porsche have released 3 different Caymans since 2006 too. It is an old car, with old tech and outdated performance and you cant hide that. It doesnt have to be a GT3RS, a newish MX5 or aforementioned BMW's feel light years more advanced in the chassis and their power delivery. I loved my 350 when I bought it in 2006 but where tech has moved on, Nissan dont seem to have done anything with the Z car, probably because hey dotn want it nicking GTR sales

    This years motorsport

    Remember when it started going wrong at RBR as well? Same thing, toys start getting ejected everywhere. I actually like the bloke and hes high on the list of F1 drivers Id like to have a pint with (Kimi, Ricciardo and Button are the podium places) but he needs to work on his losing face. Ive got a few mates in F1 and invariably Im told Lewis is a massive ****. Shame.

    Toyota taking orders for 300.....

    I think it was the 20i but he said it was what youd hope for - sporty, fairly stiff, felt light on the road and suggests the bigger engined cars are going to be worth a serious look, even with the 20i he said it was fast enough and good fun

    Toyota taking orders for 300.....

    A friend of mine has driven the new Z4 and was well impressed - said it felt light, wieldy and much better than his current Z4M. Nice

    BMW 335i?

    My 135 went to Snetterton about a month ago, Spa and Zolder a couple of weeks back and is at Nur next week, cruiser on the street and monster on the track. Get it done

    Finally, an MPS4 review I can trust

    Having just done a couple of thousand miles and two trackdays on MPS4 I found they are pretty astonishing for wet grip but not as resilient as the MPSS, I got some light melting at Spa in the wet which is a bit concerning. MPS4S still arent available in 18 in UK

    Another "what cars" question.... for £70k

    Its not actually much, if any slower, Id certainly fancy ,myself as being faster in a Cayman S than a 911S down a bumpy B road. I cant speak for your director but I know Im not alone in not really "getting" the way a 911 drives; while I can totally appreciate the engineering and general awesomeness they drive differently from pretty much anything else, and although some people think they are the bollocks @Ekona its not to everyones taste, Id take a better balanced MR every time personally.

    Drifty Track S12 VQ build

    Ive had a few over the years, a VQ one would be a right weapon IMO.

    Another "what cars" question.... for £70k

    £20K vs £5K though, and Z33 on coilovers handles better than the Z3/Z4M as standard IMO, Z34 interior is better too. A non M Z3/4 is a bit soft and ordinary. If youre talking like for like then Id have the Cayman

    Another "what cars" question.... for £70k

    981 Cayman GTS, or even better a GT4, Im struggling to stop myself buying one at the moment but its getting really difficult. Beautiful to drive, fast/very fast, probably not going to drop much money. Frankly Id take a 350/370 over a Z3/Z4 as they are better drivers cars, if you want something "a bit different" F430's are in the price range youre giving, Maserati GT's sound amazing and DBS's are "only" £90K now too. Bentley Continental GT would be the obvious choice for that part of the world, they are very nice ......

    Track Etiquette Lost....

    I imagine he oversteered and rather than just use the ACRES of runoff tried to catch it and pendulumed back into the wall. The bit that got me was it was obvious Id slowed to get consent for overtaking, before that I was lapping faster than the Elise anyway TDO was the invariably excellent Circuit Days and their response was also excellent, Ive done 10+ of their days now and cannot fault them at all. The feller with me does bike days where the overtaker has full responsibility for both bikes, obviously cars are a bit bigger though so it doesnt work quite as well @brillomaster at Eau Rouge in the damp? No thanks mate
