Iain was there much of a difference in driving between a Map and the Bluespark. Would help others considering the same.

It's a completely different animal Ads.  It picks up so quick and just holds onto the boost for so much longer.
Chris said it was holding back a little, possibly due to worn spark plugs, so I'll swap those out soon and hopefully it'll pull even stronger.

Brembo's ordered and are due here soon, as are the new MSW 85 wheels, and Novitecs are sitting patiently on the dining room floor.  Should all be on the car in time for Brooklands! 👍

I had a few new bits installed on XAS yesterday at ItaliaTec in Mansfield.  Brembo 4pots with MTEC discs, MSW by OZ '85' graphite wheels, and Novitec lowering springs.  They did a really great job and i'm very pleased with the results.  Nearly done with the mechanical mods (for now), here's a few snaps of the updates.

I really want a remap! Should I just do it and ignore the warranty?

not so much of ignoring the warranty but deciding to self insure against mechanical breakdown ;)

Looking very fine indeed. Sorry to hear of sticker woes. I tend to get vinyl and cut my own, cheaper and they stick. Ok, bit of a b@ll @che but once its done you can strip it out and replace with impunity.

Seriously considering the trip t ProAlfa but not sure what mods I can make to max out before I do the turbo swap. Its a long old drive from East Yorkshire and I need to make the journey worthwhile.
