The car is currently with Wayne at Chipwizards who working his magic on it , he is trying a few different options with bits fitted and then removed so its taking a while , but thats fine as I know when I get it back it will be set up perfectly . hopefully another week or so and it will be done .

Good news Phil. I am looking forward to the outcome of the performance vs mods map options and which combo gives the best gains, keep us updated mate.

Phil have you changed the colour of those Vertini Magics? They look black in that picture. I am still struggling with myself about getting mine back to silver. It’s a crime because they are literally perfect and unmarked but I just prefer silver I think.

Asking about yours because I know yours are the same colour as mine.

Best of luck when it returns

Ha! That reminds of a couple of tales:

1. My ex brother-in-law's father once told the wife he was nipping out to the shop and went to Woodstock. Yes, I kid you not - Woodstock!!

2. Mate from a few years ago went for a loaf of bread on a Friday T-time and rolled in Monday Grin

Hi David, no I think they are just probably dirty from sitting around at Hartech for 5 months , they are still Anthracite with a flash of chrome/silver on the faces the same as the ones you have . personally I prefer the alloy darker but you have to do what works for you . what colour is your car Thumb

Floor Floor thats when you thought you were just popping out and ended up out out Grin although both those tales took it to the next level and ended up a dirty stop out Thumb Grin

Phil, if you've only got 33 minutes/day, what are you doing joining new clubs and wasting your time on faceballs? I'd have been hovering around at ChipWizards, offering tea and spanners, to get my car back.

Floor Floor Floor ah it seems she would like me to only spend 33mins a day on the forums etc but when did I ever do as I was told Grin Grin

I spoke to Wayne at chipwizards and he expects to finish my car on Thursday as he's committing all day wed and Thursday to get it finished . Hartech just want it back for a few hours after Waynes done his bit, just to check everything good which is excellent of them . So will go and get it from Hartech on Monday lunch time and have booked a flight from Southampton to Manchester as it only takes 1hr to fly up. Thumb Thumb
