    Yeah man, the mudflaps are coming off today!

    Think I need to have the tracking done. The more I look at it, the more I think the front right has positive camber...

    Cheers guys!

    Update - Hondata airbox mod done. Mudflaps have been binned. Spoon filter ordered. Spoon springs will be ordered as soon as I get paid.

    Does anybody know places in Scotland that can do FRSU? What camber arms and bolts would you reccomend?

    Aye, it's a beauty. I trawled the whole of scotland looking for a good EP3, this one was head and shoulders above the rest. Think I got lucky.
