    Default My 04 Cosmic CTR

    I've been on here for a bit now and not got round to putting any real pictures up of my Cosmic.

    Anyhow barring any mis-haps, I've got the evening to myself so I'll be giving it a wash and polish this evening and taking some pics.

    Watch this space!!

    (Well not literally that would be a bit boring, but the bit underneath might interest a few people.)

    A bit of elbow grease later and you can see your face in it!



    Had a rough route in my head for a bit of a drive and about 10 minutes after leaving my house found a place where I thought would make a nice back drop and got a few pics... Until I realised I was parked next to a pikey camp site so swiftly jumped in the car and pressed on:







    Went for a drive up Belmont, not far from where I live. Roads aren't as good as the ones Funky took us over on the Lakes meet http://type-r-owners.co.uk/forums/sh...ad.php?t=58247 but aren't so bad when you want a blast!

    Found a lay-by and pulled in for some pics.











    A couple of miles further on found a car park with stupidly big pot holes. Only realised when I stopped, but took more pics of the car.









    Finally twisty bits over and done with and on the sensible road home so stopped and took some more pics.













    Oh an if it was you in the Alabaster FN2 that didn't wave back on the A675 "shame on you" (in an Al Murray stylee). I was taking photos and had plenty of time to look and clock that you were there and give a bit of courtesy!!

    Finally, the ETD and a pic of the bay...

    Cheers.

    I'm not sure really. The wife wants me to get an FN2 after seeing Neily03 and Skeleton Ops's cars, so any money could do with going towards paying off the finance behind the EP3.



    I nearly bought a Gruppe M today from xposed as the prices have come down but I resisted the temptation!

    If I am going to do anything I think it'll be in this order:

    FRSU with associated camber arms/adjusters at next service at TDI-North
    Gruppe M
    KPRO
    Premier Seats
    Maybe brakes, but I've put a new set of standarddiscs and pads on the front less than 4K ago. Never crossed my mind to go for something better!

    So if you add all that up, it's a fair wedge towards a newer car!

    Mmm, no. My wife's got an FK2 EX so I know what the layout feels like.

    Neily03 reckons his FN2 is pretty similar to his old EP3.

    Funny thing being married, if I mod my car, I pay for it. If I get an FN2 me and the wife will both pay for it... so will have to see if I've got the EP3 loan paid off before I start spending on it. It's all very political and confusing.
