My wheel wobble seems to have abated a bit with the winters, but I reckon that either my alignment is out, or I do have a warped brake disc. I'll get the discs checked and a realignment with the new front top mounts.

I'd also run over a large (fist sized) rock on Friday afternoon which made one hell of a bang underneath, and I was worried that something was seriously bent/broken/damaged. I'd stopped and checking for damage and fluid leaks with a torch but I could only get the car jacked up on Saturday morning. I saw that the rock had hit the front floorpan, but nowhere else, and although there was a scratch, it was nothing like was I was expecting. What a relief. These things do seem to be pretty well built!

I wonder what a full set of rally spec aluminium under trays costs?

Just FYI; I have updated the list of mods on the bottom of page 4

My Rennline pedal set rocked up within a day of placing the 'Black Friday' order at Design911, which was a pleasant surprise. Now it's just to get them installed, but I'll be out of the country until Sunday.

As you might expect, it's cold (just a little below freezing), dark and there's a bit of ice out there; there's a bridge near me that's always icy (even if the rest of the roads are dry, as it bridges the sea) and if you hoof it out of the corner onto the 'straight' you can get a bit of a drift on (which is never a good idea on a narrow bridge).

I've been on the Nokians since 1st November, but only the last few days have we needed to use the DEFA engine block pre-heaters. And I topped up the screen wash with the -30c winter grade stuff. All very exciting.
