Great pics and video's.
Car is a credit to you James, looks like you had a great day and a wet one for your first track day isn't exactly ideal, well done mate.

Another successful MOT.
Miles since last test maybe 250 tops.

A pic of Gus for insurance, earlier this year.
I figure value of Gus (age 32 this year) has now gone above our poor demonised 3 litre low mileage diesel Merc CLK (age 9 in a few weeks). Madness is stalking the land!

Well done with MOT...................Sadly any Merc over 8 years & less than 40 is not worth a great deal any more.

Yep, tester took 5 mins checking the red stripe was secure. That's because the rolling road can't test it's speed boost properly.

On the trackday I did the temp gauge was slowly climbing after a few laps so I decided a new radiator would be worth while. I recently bought a 3 core ally rad of ebay for £109. It's the short S2 style radiator. I have an oil cooler from the same place already and I have been using it for a bit, but I'm yet to fit the rad, but it looks good, will fit it soon and report back, if it's all good it will make a much cheaper alternative to the koyo rads that are available at 3 times the price, and probably cheaper than getting custom. Also need to get my acbron coilovers fitted and then it's time for more trackdays :twisted:
