Great photos.... The TME looks stunning in them with the castle as a back drop

All the hard work & many hours working on the Evo have paid off Oli.... The colour looks lovely

Time to enjoy the Evo now

So quite a lot has happened with the TME the past few weeks. With the paint all sorted my attention has been turned on the wheels and callipers which now let the side down - more on this later but I finally bit the bullet and ordered some new wheels.
Having two sets gives a bit more flexibility for shows and a change is always good.

Few pics of the exhaust which I only took yesterday while fitting the new wheels.







I’m really pleased with it. Looks nice, sounds really good, excellent quality and good value and Russ is a knowledgable chap and a pleasure to do business with

Last week I collected it from Bob and Lee down at Dynotech after having a service and SD mapping session. Fuel pump, actuator, plugs and E9 recirc valve all fitted and running nicely.
Not had a chance to properly drive it yet - run home around the M25 was predictably busy and slow going.
Power and torque are where you would expect for a stage one tune and standard air box but it’s good to have a bit more poke and urgency about it.
It was also very nice to have them both complimenting the car and it’s condition!

So, the wheels

Sure to divide opinion
I’ve always liked this style of wheel and i thought it would work in this combination of white against the canal blue.
I had seen a couple of photos of other Evo VIs with these on so took the plunge and went for it.

The original TME wheels are looking a little tired to be honest and let the car down a little.

The Rota D154

In buying these wheels what I've managed to do is make the process of cleaning them even harder. White wheels and lots of spokes make for tired fingers.
So before they went on I decided to try this



Gtechniq Wheel Armour ceramic coating.

I had this ready and waiting for when the wheels arrived but quickly noticed that application was never going to be great.
Nothing wrong with the product but the finish on these Rotas is not the best. The faces are smooth but all inner surfaces of the spokes are rough to the touch, like painted sandpaper. Also the inner wheel is not smooth but made up of very fine grooving.
There was no way the ceramic could be applied properly to this type of rough surface.
Anyway, I used the whole lot which provided two coats to the entire wheels in the hope that it would give some protection and barrier against brake dust.

For now this will do. The wheels are new and it won't be covering many miles but certainly a repaint or powder coat in a shade closer to the original TME wheels is on the cards for the future

Very tempted on that exhaust it looks really well made, the one I’m running is very “grown up” kind of spoils it l, how much was that exhaust?
