17th Year of Ownership

Coming 17 years with the Evo & received an excellent renewal quote from Christian at Keith Michaels. Either I'm getting really old or the NCD is just going up & up

Yes, same one.
Had an engine built by NR with a 3076 13 years ago out of choice and not necessity, thatís now done 45000 miles. Just put a 2nd twin plate in. Still on GSR diff, gearbox has had a 3rd gear, it came on HKS hipermax coil overs, these got swapped to teins and last year they got swapped due to corrosion

Very impressive, Tom - I just wish I'd kept the IX, but circumstances nudged me to part.
