Sooo shiney! Can't wait to see it finished. The rear end looks fabulous with the spoiler, diffuser, and dual exhaust.

I have stopped setting dates with ESS because apparently it is impossible for the workshop to make up a reliable estimate of when the car is ready. The only thing I can do is keep the pressure on them. I will be heading over to ESS as soon as possible.

New pics:

Delivery of the car is planned for Saturday. Today I have driven the car for the first time in a long time. There are still some minor issues that have to be fixed (seat heating pads and the audio system are not working properly). The new suspension with the Reiger dampers and uprated bushings is working extremely well. Very comfortable and well controlled, much better than stock even though the car has been lowered several centimeters. We still have to fine tune the suspension.

The exhaust has a very nice sound, brakes are doing well and the Recaro seats are superb.

It's coming together as a truly fantastic project.

Look forward to hearing what it's like when you get behind the wheel a bit more and get to really see how the final packace comes out. :thumbsup:
