    EP3 TEGIWA HUBCENTRIC WHEEL SPACERS 15MM

    It's not just the material of the spacer to take into consideration, but that of the auxiliaries such as the nuts/bolts and attached studs. A risk is that these are fabricated using a lesser grade steel and therefore run the risk of failing sooner than a more expensive brand (read; the embossed...

    What did you do to your Type R today?

    Having seen one of the Works GP's in the flesh (albeit with better wheels on than in the video) I am surprised to admit just how much I liked it. That, and it sounded very nice indeed - although I'm not sure if it was standard as as I say, it didn't have Mini wheels on it.

    So a reflash will take the power up to where it's supposed to be then? ;) I follow them on FB and have noticed this, which is what drove the desire somewhat. But the fact that they're ten plus years old and that I've never imported a car before gave me butterflies and I wimped out. :lol:

    FK8 Anybody with an FK8 own or owned a Nissan GT-R?

    Yes, the costs involved of taking it to an GT-R authorised Nissan dealership (there's only a handful in the country) are always astronomical, and servicing by a decent specialist (such as Litchfield) will always cost less. And regards to tyres, using an independent will save about £1,000 on four.

    Hey Mondie, so, to answer some of the queries... From brand new there is the 'delivery service' after a thousand miles or so. Then a 6 month service and then yearly / 6 month rotation services thereafter (as multiple items require servicing at different intervals). Average cost per service at...

    I'd like to think that you measured the garage prior to purchase to ensure that it would actually fit that snugly, but my guess is that you got lucky when you brought it home! Also, a 120 litre tank is quite substantial.

    So tallying up the Mugen parts listed on Tegiwa (so I am sure that there would be more to the range), you're looking at £29,370 without the Modulo wheels. Add them at £10,800 a set without tyres and I'm sure that there will be a very limited number of insurance options available to you! :lol...

    The lead time is relevant to how long it takes for a set to be manufactured upon placing your order, as most RAYS are built to order.
