    Thanks. I some times think the colour scheme is a bit OTT, but most people like it. Its a track car after all not a road car, but it does get a bit of road use for hot hatch bating
    Other thing is the colours and graphics are mainly paint not stickers so changing them would ba a pain :

    Do you run any track days from here at all? Its a great way to use the car at its limmit in safety. If so I would love to come along to one in the BMW or Toyota, BMW seems to drift nicely down the lanes

    Its not going to buff out thats for sure. I went thru a tire wall at about 60 sideways last year in my car, thats what you get for racing :
    Unfortunatly there was a man with a camera standing by at the time too :?

    The tires are just out of shot but as it happens I caught the slide but the car span around hitting them drivers side first and moving a LOT of hay, rubber and water (they always fill with rain ) That only cost a few quid to fix, I have spare panels around the place as this is expected. I did badly flat 2 new toyo888s tho at £152 each.

    By the way, liking the snow effect, relaxing Quite a slick site in fact. Some great touches.
