Managed a meal out with just me and Amy for the first time since the new baby arrived !! What a treat and a cracking evening to drive a beautiful car !

Great thread! Car looks really smart, and you've done some nice mods/maintenance on it so far.

Any other plans for it?

You don't hang about do you buddy! Nice progress, I look forward to reading more updates.

I've got a spacer question too if you don't mind. Did you need to cut down the existing studs to fit the wheel or was there enough clearance with the little pockets in the back of the wheel? Also, any rubbing at the front? (how low are you on those fancy Ohlins?)

I see you've had a few 306's! I had Rallye for many years - it was a decent lttle car! Were you a member of 306gti6.com?

i didn't have to cut down the studs at all , as you say due to the cups in the rear of the wheels . I believe though that these style ( think they're v1's ? ) are the only ones with these cups . I wouldnt fancy cutting the original studs at all to be honest , would cause to much hassle if you wanted to remove the spacers .

Yes we was on 306gti6 forum many moons ago ! Great cars !
