Re: The wheel specialist

OK, so quick update for anyone considering a wheel colour change, I contacted Auto Curators in Hook who said they wouldn't just paint the wheels as it would obviously take up valuable garage storage space, but did put me onto the outfit they use called My Alloys near Basingstoke. Very nice people to...

Re: The wheel specialist

I’ve used The Wheel Specialist in Farnham a few times and they used to do excellent work, with the wheels coming out better than new. However, I used them last year for a wheel on my daughters car and although they were fairly cheap the job the did wasn’t very good - I’d have rather paid more elsew...

The wheel specialist

Has anyone used this company? I believe they're a franchise outfit so specifically the one in Hawley near Camberley, Surrey. I'm thinking about going black on my diamond cut wheels and so wanted to speak/get advice from them, but they don't appear to be open on Saturdays , email probably the way for...

Re: Bonnet Vents & Water Ingress

This looks like some sort of solution and a nice bit of neat taping to boot! Would still be good to have a more oem look about it though, no offence intended on your work.

Re: Jaguar Track Day - Castle Combe - 20th October 2020

Thanks for getting back scharlton, yes I know you can get quite a move on along the not straight, straight! Interesting to hear your feedback, the f-type seems to do well on track then with brake temp' being the limiting factor, I've got the v6 rdynamic, possibly not quite as slippy as your R but sh...

Re: Jaguar Track Day - Castle Combe - 20th October 2020

Didn't know about this, I've driven CC before, nice smallish track. How does the F-type hold up given the weight, changes of direction, grip, brake pads? Not had mine for long and wouldn't mind trying it out on track, do you leave it in auto or go on paddles?
