Default S204

I thought Iíd start a new thread with the 204, Iíve still only driven it around 8 miles now so canít really comment to much on it, although a few things Iíve already noticed,

Seats are really tight just like everyone says, Iím sure when I get my seating position right they will be fine

Steerings super responsive which will take some getting used to, and it goes ok, I do believe that currently the Porsche would be quicker


Few things on the to do list for piece of mind. If anyone has any input then please do,


Full cam belt kit, tensioners, pulleys etc , been looking at the HKS and STi kit at RCM ??

RCM oil pump

Water Pump

And a Service (It was done as part of sales Prep but Iíll do it again) what oil are people using, my old sccob used to run millers 10-60 but Iím sure things have moved on now

Indoor cover has been ordered and is being made


Iím after a steering wheel spacer, keeping the standard wheel, anyone had any dealings with this, had one in the Porsche from a company in Italy and makes a massive difference



Other than that having had a quick look around I had 2 tiny tiny dents taken out yesterday and Iím thinking it could be in the region of about 60 hours to detail, front end PPF then back to me for many layers of ceramic

Looks so nice Darren. Somehow the wheels and mirrors give it a fresh modern look.

Been a while so thought Iíd have an update,
Iíd only driven the car 20 miles up until now due to having surgery and being really busy with work..
Car had been in for a total fluid service, belts, RCM oil pump, water pump, fuel pump and braided lines, then a few little discreet mods

Stuck it on my mates dyno and it made 311/337 @ wheels

Goes really well, think it could do with a new set of tyres though and better brakes

Just got some of these, if they fit under your wheels they should be ample

I've had my 2 piece Performance Friction discs for at least 8 years now with the standard Brembos and they have been brilliant on all types of driving..
