Wow! Where to start. Congrats on the twins. They'll keep you busy. Very Happy
Well done on the building project. I know all about those. Hard work and can be very stressful.

I love those Cayennes. Awesome value for money. I often have a sift through them on eBay.

Car still looks great. Excellent improvement on those lights.
Make sure you use a good company for the wheels, especially if you're getting them diamond cut. Make sure they're familiar with those exact wheels.

Exciting times for you Lee, well done. Thumb

@marky911 gonna be using chris at excel so know he knows what he's doing Thumb
and oh yes the little toe rags are keeping us busy and awake all night Sleepy Happy
the cayenne is a good motor to be fair Thumb

@hsc911 i did mine myself about 2 years ago and they yellowed back up in no time according to the guy that i used it was because i hadnt got them ultra smooth but time will tell how they hold up this time Smile

and twins wise well lets just say my mrs sent me straight down to the doctors for a couple of modifications myself nooo

@jezgreen911 i have indeed buddy had it fitted nearly 15k now and still loving it she revs up a lot quicker
not a mod for everyone though i'd say as you have to adapt your driving a bit
ie you end up driving in lower gears as if let it drop below 2k revs it shakes and vibrates when trying to accelerate
and i read other comments about the chattering at idle before committing to it but same as with exhausts etc some peoples too loud is someone elses not loud enough type thing so i expected it to be on the lower end of what i imagined but nope she does sound a little like a tractor
and pulling up at busy traffic lights with lots of pedestrians about i have been known to keep the clutch dipped Grin

i'll do a little vid and try and capture the chatter if anyone is on the fence and interested?

Hi Lee,
the lights look good but did he put any UV coating on them, I polished mine but they went cloudy again quite quickly this summer.

Lee, do you know what manufacture your flywheel is?, TTV or Aasco?

Cheers

@maldren
i know he put some kind of sealant on them but whether or not it was UV coating i have no idea

@hsc911 funny you should mention that as if my mrs had her way she would have that many modifications she'd be the equivalent of something out of max power magazine (if that still exists Embarassed )

@crash7 i'll have a look through my receipts and pics as i cant remember off the top of my head
but it was from RPM so the same as they use on the CSR conversions

Just got a read through there lee. Wheel spacers look good though I'm going to be dropping another 20mm on the m030.
I think you've pretty much covered what most of us are aiming to do.

The black always looks good worship
