Thanks for all the kind words I got the car from Mercedes Newcastle, I wanted a 08 model but with the big brakes and in black so it took a long time to find one because very few cars have the big brakes after 07 because it was a lot of money to upgrade back to big brakes mine has the P30 performance package and it cost £3157.45 +vat. I have some short tube headers to go on and I have fitted some AEM air filters like K&Ns but no oil. The next thing is to get a standerd exhaust and take the cats out and keep the original exhaust for MOTs.

You've done very well there, how many miles and if you don't mind what was the asking price. I got mine last month after over 6 months of looking. I too wanted the bigger brakes but it was proving impossible to find one.
Very jealous of your carbon bits and your steering wheel.

Hi the asking price was 28k and it has 23000 miles on it the car was for sale at Bedford Mercedes which is part of the same group as Newcastle Mercedes. I do the cosmetic paint work for Newcastle so they got the car for me off Bedford and we did a deal. The photos are off when I was doing a little bit of work on it before I picked the car up and they paid me to do it as well LOL . I must say Newcastle Mercedes is a fantastic dealership to work for and to buy a car off

Nice GTR
Thankfully your car was above my budget so I'm not so gutted now lol

One of your mods must be to fit a smart top.

Ive removed my secondary cats and ressinator box I'm lead to believe that passing future mots won't be a problem as the primary cats and lambdas are still fitted.

I would not remove anymore than I've done trust me it's loud enough.

All I want to do is just remove the primary cats and the secondary cats but not the resonator box and I will refit the lambda sensors and see what that's like with the headers I have

At least your the right side of all the joins so shoud be a simple swap.

What affect will having no cats and the lambdas fitted have on the fuelling?
