I changed the drier out last week all straightforward pretty sure this is the original drier that was still fitted comparison of some part numbers below for reference. Hoping to get the cruise control stalk fitted today.

Cheers DH its coming along nicely have you managed to get yours out for another run yet ?

So didnt get far with fitting the cruise control stalk due to not having a suitable T9 torx screwdriver to remove the shroud on the steering wheel so one ordered from Fleabay to add to the toolbox.

The cruise control is now fitted i followed an excellent guide I picked up on line if anyone needs a copy drop me a note, The only awkward bit was the bloody clip the pops through the back of the lower cover it wasn't very keen to pop out however got their eventually.

Popped in to town to get the new rear boots and TPMS fitted so another couple of jobs ticked off.

Nice work Gazc2. I like the cruise control mod..
Does it need programming in with PIWIS once the car is up and running again?

Looks like your list of mods keeps growing Smile

The cruise needs coded in I have been looking at the foxwell NT530 not sure if it does the cruise mind you, I also need to code the rear spoiler to the fixed position as well.

should hopefully get my bits back from the painter this week.

Loooking good progress gaz
You picked a good time to do the work!

I have indeed been out in mine a lot, about 1000++ miles in fact and its running like a dream. Indecently fast and with handling like no other car I have ever owned! I can see why people say these are too fast to use fully on UK roads, its mind boggling how quick a turbo is as an all round point to point car.

Glad to hear your putting yours to good use and its all running fine and as you say a completes buzz to drive, I read a lot of tosh about turbos being dull, lacking character etc. It brings a smile to my face everytime I get in it and I have had it 5 years in May.

Waiting on some more sill clips to arrive to get the pass side finished and that will be me just about done except for.

A good detail
wheel alignment
MOT
Re-charge AC
Code spoiler and Cruise control

then time to drive Thumb

Ah sounds good!
Yeah that is one thing I will be sorting, my aircon doesnt blow fully cold, whether its a leak I am not sure. Will get it tested I think. And I have a 4WA on the cards too! Got a 12 month Mot with no advisories on it a couple of weeks ago which is always nice
Mr. Green
then we just need some decent weather Surprised

So back on its wheels this week and took it out for a shakedown all seems fine however didn't go far, I do have an airbag light on which I assume needs the code clearing after having the steering wheel off ?

so aero rear spoiler, front aero splitter,rear splitter and side skirts painted and fitted I did mention getting the GTS skirts originally however left them for now.

Top job there, you've saved yourself a fortune there on labour.

I love the comment that some people say that Turbo's are Dull, obviously these are people that have never driven one, sometimes mine gives me a fright!

Looks lovely. Maybe some wheel spacers to fill the arches out a bit more. Will look better like that IMO especially with the aero kit.

Cheers gents delighted how its turned out I will have owned this for 5 years this year and it still brings a smile and as you say Nick when people say they are a dull drive I just don't get it nooo 13 years old now so you need to keep on top of them, Your right about the spacers they would finish it off so will keep an eye out for a set although would it still be the usual 7 & 15 for the turbo ? these wheels are 11.5 at the rear.

FWIW I have used the Foxwell NT520 to code a fixed rear spoiler on my MY 2010 C2S after fitting a ducktail. Should also clear the airbag light but not sure about the cruise control coding though ?

If you let me know your offsets I'll let you know the best spacer size. That style wheel was available for both C2S and C4S and turbo.

They look brill on the turbo. You can also go up a tyre size next time round try 245 35 19 and 325 30 19. This also helps with filling out the arches.

Hers mine on OEM classic with your tyre size and BBS 19 inch with the larger tyre size. You can really see the difference and less understeer too.

I have just bought a whole new set of boots so the tyres will be staying 305/235 for a while yet wheel sizes and offset below.


Front Wheels: 8.5Jx19 ET55 (p/n 99736215756)
Rear Wheels: 11.5Jx19 ET50 (p/n 99736216356)

In regards the foxwell coding pretty sure it doesn't do the cruise control I am going to pop it in to my Indy to sort it out.

Depends how aggressive you want but Factory 997 Turbo Wheels and offsets are and you can go up to 7mm front and 15mm rear:

Front alloy wheels: 19x8.5" ET56
Wheel part number: POR 99736215605

Rear alloy wheels: 19x11" ET51
Wheel part number: POR 99736216202

I'd be going 5mm front and 10mm rear to leave little space if you up the tyre size next time around.

You can go as far as 6mm front and 14mm rear with no rubbing for that super filled out look with those offsets.
