how come you took the car to sly for the service when it was at Litchfields for the intakes?

And what torque did your car make?

EDIT: Just read your for sale thread. You always go to Sly for servicing. I assume you went to litchfields for the intakes and V5 for the use of the rolling road and Iain's expertise in mapping.
Went for the mapping and the rolling road ;)

Since I am keeping the car, this year is going to be a general tidy up on the car, to make sure everything is perfect :)

Done:-
-New windscreen (already chipped :()
-New ASNU injectors (and remap) to reduce black smoke
-Refurbed wheels
-Silicone piping

To be done:-
-Custom wrap goes on in June
-New tyres (R888s)
-New brakes
-Will repaint the calipers with the new brakes

Might be on the list for this year:-
-New front seats
-Remove rear seats (allow more space for bags, etc)
-Front diff (waiting to see a friends car with a quaiffe front diff)

Just done 600 miles last weekend going to Holland and back to look at the tulips. Will be out at N24 at the end of this month and then a couple of GTR owners are doing a tour of Europe in September.
