  • Can’t wait to see this when it’s out in the sun. Worth a holiday down your neck of the woods to see it in the flesh!

      • Paintwork I’m sure is going to look stunning, particularly once you have detailed it. Which spec intrax suspension are you going with? I haven’t heard of any review on these.

          I do hope so too! I'm a bit nervous about the actual process of putting it together again. Will definitely be updating more often in the future .

          Me too! It will be another 4-5 months I estimate by the time I get everything gathered, assembled properly. I do plan on doing a Euro trip in a year or two if everything goes well .

          I haven't seen the car in the flesh yet but the painter knows how picky I am with paint so sure he has done a great job. Then anything I can fix I will do later.

          Intrax I am likely to go with 1K2 with ARC (Anti roll control) and black titan to prevent corrosion. If I can stretch the budget I will go for 1K2XL, the XL basically is more responsive to the regular 1K2. From what I've read on other forums for Porsche/BMW, people seem to have had good results with Intrax and am hoping that by using soft springs and having the anti roll control, I can get a somewhat compliant ride whilst keeping things civilized in the bends

            interested to hear what the pricing is like on the intrax. I couldn’t justify after just changing the front shocks but interesting to see options other than kw

              • The specific model I want with all the extras is around 5,500 euro. Their entry levels start around 2-3k I believe. I couldn't get on with the KWs in my car
