Floor Floor Aaron has done accents on his black turbo S in yellow and that looks the biz mind you he does have ceramic breaks lol and Lee has gone for red accents and they tie in with his calipers very nicely. Nigel be bold go for Orange and black Grin Grin

Minor service at OPC Wolverhampton, new trailing arm and front bump stops hiked the bill. Seeking contribution from supplying OPC. Only had car 5 months. Watch this space!

Are they not general wear and tear items?

Expensive to replace?

Correct, but they perish over time so should have been picked up before I purchased the car 5 months ago following OPC inspection IMO. Cheap parts expensive Labour. I'd have got,them done elsewhere tbh, but have NC 500 shortly so wanted it done swiftly.

Supplying OPC have given me a 50 percent contribution to the trailing arms and bumpstops bill, so happy with that.

Nicely done, and nice to see some common sense from an OPC. Maybe the midlands isn't as bad as I thought! Grin

Look sweet - just had my fronts done but now wish I'd had back done to. How much for the 4? It cost me £240 for the front 2 inc webbing and fitting. I hear the backs are much harder?

I know it's not on topic but do you have any pics of the Spectre Defender in your signature block? I'd love to see a pic.
