Well gave the old gal a clean
Wow! That's got to be the tidiest underside of a 3.0 I've ever seen!

I swapped out my Bridgestone Potenza S001s at the end of their life (1.9mm) for some fresh Michelin Pilot Sport 4. Has completely changed the dynamic of the car, the dry and wet grip is unreal!
Love the lift and the wrenches stuck on the wall. I'm a big fan of easy access...

Sheared off 2 of the 3 top mount threads :headbang: new top mount and nuts ordered, just need to mess around getting the shock off now :headbang:

All this because I wanted to remove my fancy strut brace and put it up for sale. Why did I bother? :lol:

I was considering doing the same. Maybe I should think again in case the same fate awaits me! :o

Finally got around to getting my front tyres replaced. I've had them in my shed since last March :lol:

I also have the rear tyres ready to go on, but the current ones still have 2mm-2.5mm tread, so I can get a few more miles out of those :P

Also fitted a new top mount on the n/s, after snapping 2 threads on the old one. When I say old, it had only been in for a few thousand miles, as I replaced them last year :headbang:

Wowee, looks amazing. Fantastic job. :thumbsup:

The underside of a car is so much more interesting than the topside...

Fixed my non working remotes/alarm.

Not a problem I've found often on the forum, however it is the wiring coming from the car, going into the mirror which must be a bit dodgy! As I got it working again by fiddling with the cables a bit..

Cheers. I had it fitted by a company near Brighton a few years ago. They featured me on their Facebook page yesterday :thumbsup:

That's a common colour for the S2000 so I guess they've used that material and cut it to size....... :D

I’ve been getting mine ready for the coming season, tidying up small bits (Left hand folding mirror replacement, cracked third brake light renewal) and also this new registration went on yesterday. Been thinking about a plate since buying the car... and after seeing OS54ZMC on Facebook I found this on the DVLA site and couldn’t resist it 🙌 roll on the better weather now!
