Had all the dents removed from the car today , dent man spent 4 hours went round the whole car did every dent , if your in Wiltshire and need a dent removing I know a good man !

Had the prep work done all panels with duff paint lacquer peel smoothed etc

I’ve changed my mind on the wrap again . It’s being wrapped on Wednesday and I’ve chosen a metallic flip colour

Will try fit the brembos soon too and put the bbs wheels back on

I’m doing pembrey track day in October hope it’s dry as don’t want to buy anymore tyres as new slicks for the bbs wheels and Cupra r wheels will get winter tyres ready for any bad weather we may get next year




Oh and the m140I is on 1800 miles and is awesome ,
I know this is a seat forum and sad to say I did test drive a new Cupra and anybody looking at one I would try a Hyundai i30N , I personally felt the the i30N would also be better on track than the Cupra too , if you haven’t driven one go and try it , forget the badge what a car that is . But the Cupra does have that nice dsg box there just getting too pricey now sadly

But m140i is in another league

Just my opinion

Once again the colour has changed due to supplier issues and not having the above in stock or able to get it in a reasonable time

So I’ve chosen another

Here is the car missing mirrors . Door handles , etc

Very nice but how the heck do you decide which car to drive.

The Toledo is my every day go to work car which I’m actually really fussy about where I park it as I’ve had all the dents out and bodywork is mint and is my track day car .

The bmw is our “family” car for when we go out as a family or just for a fun blast

Yea it’s hard which to drive , bmw just clocked over 2000 miles this weekend .

The s4 is a life long dream more than anything and over winter I’ll be doing a few things to it and I’ll garage it and use it on nice days as values are going up on them .

I don’t really know my self which to drive but none of them are going anywhere , bmw is here for a while and the Toledo is never leaving for as long as I can keep it mot’d :)

Is that not the definition of a petrol head....

Nice collection of cars but I have to say I do like the wrap on the Toledo.

It’s been on my bucket list for years this car ,
It’s going to mainly take over from the M140i in winter for the wife as I think the bmw will be a handful on the Michelin pilot super sport tyres

I’ll keep the progress updated on the s4

Also track day is October 6th so I must find time to get the Toledo brakes fitted and also can’t decide what car to Paris next week

I think it’s a job for the Toledo

Found out this week that the s4 is running rs4 k04 turbos , rs4 injectors , H&R roll bars , koni suspension , race fuel pump and many other goodies with a stage 3 MRC tune

Can’t wait to drive it .

Changed the front engine mounts in it this evening

What a pig of a job , I feel sorry for anybody who ever has to do these



Previous owner ripped them clean out and cracked the gearbox mount



How the rest of it survived I don’t know

Also Audi Swindon put a steering rack in it 3 weeks ago and the boot is already split , look at what the clowns did to it trying to do tracking I presume



Ignore the fact the spring is loose I have the coil over wound down whilst doing some work .

Big update time

The s4 was repaired and then involved in a small accident . Too heart broken to repair it again I’ve now sold it on.

Doubled my money and still came out with good profit but such a shame as wanted to keep it but that’s it’s third accident and I’m very superstitious so it had to go .

It was a money pit , So glad to see the back of that one



The BMW M140i is on about 3000 miles and not a single issue and one of the best cars I’ve ever owned.

The Toledo ,
I’ve now owned this 5 years and it’s an amazing bit of kit and surprisingly capable on track .

I’ve in two minds If this year the interior is going , the cage is going in and the bigger turbo and forged engine goes in .

I’ve started collecting parts and have a Tillett carbon seat for it



I’ve had the back wrapped ready to match the cars body work






I feel bad to fully track this car(interior out cage etc ) because it’s been with me so long now I’m attached to it !

May end up half cage and swap seats over between track days and ring trips

Brembos are still sat in the living room , I’m going to have them on after this winter .

The back of them seats look awesome!

To fully track day a car whilst still having a daily is a gift not to be sniffed at... It's almost calling for it lol

Good luck!
