Cool. Here's to hoping it's all for looks and you never have to use any of it.

What's your best time in a MaX5 at Zandvoort or your own 1.8? I've yet to drive my first lap in one actually...

Never driven a MaX5 either. My best laps in my own car were not timed/recorded, but the ones that are, were in the 2:20.xx range. I need to break into the 2:15.xx next year without adding (significant) power.

Going to test fit a Sparco Pro ADV.
VERY, VERY comfortable and safe seat.

Beautiful suede flat steering wheels for next season. I wanted thumb grips and more meat. Using quick releases now or I wouldnt get in/out of the car with the cage and eared seats.
