    Radical will be fun at Cadwell, if you’ve got the downforce mindset required to get the best from them.

    Well done, you spotted my deliberate mistake. :p I’ve ordered the Renntech version which appears to have a couple of design features that’ll help. It also includes rear ducts. Hopefully I can get all this installed soon and have an exploratory track session somewhere in early August.

    I was sold my car as an AMG but my friend is saying it is not?

    AMG is a trim level and this is the most common trim in the UK. A real Mercedes-AMG is quite different.

    These Pagid RSC1 pads are vast, and over £800 for a set. Also coming are cooling ducts. They are backed up by some solid test data as shown here. The left brake has a duct installed, the right is all standard.

    I had to go with internally fixed, it robs me of around 200mm depth but is more secure and aesthetic. I was going with just replacing the single door I need at a mere £1,400 for a Aluroll roller which would be plenty of room, but I know I’d be kicking myself for not getting the double...

    Thank you. All mods will be fully documented. Thanks Nick, car is tucked away until the weekend, I’ll grab more then. Hey Alps, yes Trax could be a thing. When is it? Thanks Bobby.

    Never one to do things by halves. :) I have two really poor interior pics. I'll get better ones at the weekend. Yes, the view out of the rear window is as bad as you'd think it is.

    Hey Lee. Yes, already ordered the double door conversion last week. Using an Aluroll door. £4k all in, which I thought was good value. It's still two weeks away though, annoyingly. Yes, CC brakes. I'm replacing the pads with Pagid RSC1 and adding Renntech or TIKT cooling ducts plus my...

    Returning to the AMG family.

    Here it is. I chose a much higher spec car, I think these need as much spec as possible for future resale. It has pretty much everything except the interior carbon pack and one of the two external ones. I’m going to look to retrofit the interior carbon bits as this should be fairly easy. It...

    Thank you very much :) Thanks Bobby. 360 camera not an option on these unfortunately, but I’ve chosen a different car now and hopefully collecting it at the weekend. Hey Lee. Been a while. Thought I’d better make my return as glamorous as possible. :p Thank you revo.

    Returning to the AMG family.

    Hi everyone, been a while since I last checked in here. It looks like I’m making a triumphant return to AMG ownership in the shape of a 2017 GT R. I’ve sold my M3 track day toy and also looking to sell my Caterham, these should fund the GT R. I’m torn by the how necessary the Premium Pack is...

    W213 E63s 4Matic clunking... Anyone else?

    I read in last week’s Aurocar that the Giulia has an even worse skipping issue than the E63. This isn’t just an MB issue, quite a few 4WD cars do it.

    W213 E63s 4Matic clunking... Anyone else?

    This is a well known and heavily documented 'feature' on newer UK 4Matic cars, such as the GLC, E & C classes etc. Dealer will give you a free set of winter tyres if you ask.

    I need another track car, M3.

    I got papped at the ‘ring, I really like how the car looks here. Perfect angle and a nice level of shininess.

    E63 Rear Ended

    Very happy for you. I’m amazed it got repaired to be honest, a great result.
