    Hi All

    Just joined here after a long time (tonyh 's tip)

    I have a 355 spider with a tubi (who doesnt nowadays) no cats and the Gruppe M induction system.

    Erm.....thats about it really apart from the fact that like all of us I ma nuts about these cars and have done Le Mans and last years cannonball3000 with another group of 'enthusiasts' although not all 'motoring' enthusiasts called the ratpac........

    That's all really.....apart from the fact I am delberating whether to get the Stradale ...but i cannot convince myself at that high price !!!!

    Aother Pher her too.

    Basher surely you must be tempted by the 360CS after seeing the pictures of Kevin's on Pistonheads!

    Awesome looking car but it would look plain evil in black with the stripe.

    Hi Basher

    Good to see you over here!

    Any more mods planned for the 355?

    BTW after you sent me those wav. files of yours been thraped up the road, I could'nt wait to hear a tubi for real........heard simon spiders' de-cat tubi a few weeks back in Leeds and them thar' surrounding hills........epic I must admit. Going through the tunnels in Leeds it sounded like F1 footage from Monaco.

    Best Regards


    MOD.

    Ta for that Martyn,when I got back after that 3 hr driveout I had to buy some bloody anadins! It got hammered that day which probably had something to do with the fact that the exhaust manifolds burnt through within a few days.Going in for it sorting on Thursday.Hope the TVR's ok mate

    Sorry to hear of the manifolds going, are you replacing them with the JZ (sp?) exchange items?

    The TVR is ok, am hopefully picking it up by the end of the week from its self inflicted exile at Harrogate Horseless after popping a heater hose on the drive out. The bill is quite steep (got it serviced and the dash re-finished too) but not as bad as expected with a few expensive items covered under warranty.

    Are you still thinking of a Lambo?

    Regards


    MOD.

    P.S: Sorry for the slight thread hijack!

    Hey Basher. Surprised you've taken so long to find it. Oh, and on the CS, if you would have to sell your soul to get one, avoid them. It's addictive as hell.

    Al will be along shortly to take the piss....

    Elms - wasn't me mate.....but it will be next time !!

    Not planning any more mods on the car as there is not a whole lot more i can / want to do....everything so far has been simple without crossing that line into affecting the engine / risking problems.....prob only thing left is the straight thru race exhaust ...but i think the car is loud enough already now !!
    Could only go for cosmetic changes now but i think the carbon fibre door sills i had done were practical and enough quite frankly....

    I would not mind changing the steering wheel as it feels like it should have been ut on a double decker bus.....but that is all.....(might nick Kev's off the CS when he is not looking )

    Kev - you lucky lucky lucky $*&^£^"& - got all the options list thru yesterday for a 360 CS and the payment options BUT probably wont go for it due to cost and the fact that i am reknowned for doing huge mileage in mine ....i think a 360 CS with 12k miles after 1 year will lose value like a stone.....

    As for Ali...... someone left his laptop on top of the desk so until he finds a step ladder he wont be able to log on ......
