Talking Long Time Coming...

I've been lurking around for a few months, but finally saved sufficient funds to make the purchase, so thought id announce myself officially

White 2010 GTR in standard condition 6500 miles. Very happy chappy



Previously had an M3 CSL and the GTR is an interesting change, extremely fast and excellent handling, however it lacks the 'raw' of the CSL so will be making a few changes over the coming weeks.



Hoping to book in with Litchfields this week to start the install.

Cheers Bud

Really happy with the colour although washing all the bug juice is hard work

Best of luck mate looks fantastic, give us a nice write up after the mods, always like to hear the comparisons, I assume your going for a Cobb and I see the GTC box so assume your at least getting a y-pipe??

Thanks for the comments guys!

Booked with Litchfield today so dropping off next week to pick up on the 16th installation will comprise of:-

- Advan RS-D in Black
- Volk Racing Nuts

- KW Sleeve Kit (very keen to review this as havent seen it done in the UK, in the US its very popular..)
- Whiteline ARBs (Front & Rear)
- Whiteline Uprated Drop Links

- GTC Titan (80mm) including Y-Pipe. The tips have just come back from Robbie @ Magic so looking very fresh.



So very excited at the moment

Will definitely report back on findings once installed. I have been quite careful in my pick of modifications. I truly think the GTC system offers the best quality and value in the market.

In terms of suspension I wanted to retain some of the functionality in adjusting the suspension for comfort, normal, and R-mode which a full coilover system would remove. My driving involves good sprinted runs on sunny weekends and the occasional track day so I believe the sleeve kit offers the best balance against cost (this is half the price if not a third of KW full coilover setup), quality, and balance of driving (for me anyhow..)

The sleeve kit is very popular in the US, however havent heard much about it being used in the UK - So will definately report.

I went Whitelines for the ARBs after reading reviews and balancing the ease of accessing the kit. Stillen is a great alternative but i couldnt be bothered with trying to arrange shipping from the US etc.. so whitelines was a good alternative being readily available..

After four days of ownership i still slightly miss my old CSL, the CSL is just so RAW and fun to drive without going at maximo top speeds (the GTR is just so quiet you cant tell what speed your doing). Also liked the RWD and getting the back out...however i am starting to love the GTR the cornering ability and 'grab' when accelerating out of corners is just addictive! SO in terms of CSL vs GTR at the moment the rawness of the CSL wins but at the compromise of the superb power and handling of the GTR, however after my visit to Litchfield i hope to come back and say the Godzilla has awoken and eaten the CSL for breakfast and poo'd it out by afternoon

What did Robbie do to your Exhaust tips ? Pop them on the BBQ for 15 minutes ? They`ve all discoloured.

Nice car....great choice and once you unleash some more power you will quickly forget the CSL

Can i ask where you sourced the Whiteline kit and prices? Think this could be the next mod for mine as read a few great reviews.

Are you winding me up lol They're titanium and have the blue tinted ends which emerge under extreme heat. The tips and theyre colour come as standard, although present a challenge as too much 'polishing' can remove the colouring which isnt something i wanted as i see it as a characteristic of the exhaust.

Robbie did a good job in polishing the middle of the tips, internals, whilst still retaining the colouring which is perfect for me and i always knew could be a challenge.


Stevie76 - The whiteline's kit was purchased from Demon Tweeks, they are a customer of mine and provided preferential rates. However would suggest you shop round as i know they dont have the lowest retail prices...I believe Litchfield are authorised dealers and could have stock.

That's good to know as i have the very same zorst & the photos you posted look identical to mine so i was curious as to what Robbie had done

Had no problems keeping mine looking good on the outside & i gave up caring about the inside of zorst tips many cars ago

More deliveries today woohoo







The ARBs are blooming heavy! Quality of the sleeve kit very good, seems as though the kit also includes new bump stops which is pretty cool.
