    Got yet another set of rear tyres - last set (MPSS) lasted around 27k miles so well pleased and went with the same again

    I'm overwhelmingly relieved that I cancelled my order!
    Moved into my new flat, then immediately had to move back into my parent's place a day later.
    I ripped up the Lino in the bathroom to put some tiles down. Stench once I broke the sealant was unreal. I went and smashed open a boxed in section in the corner of the bathroom because that's where it seemed to be coming from. Major water problem and black mold. :frown:

    Turns out a previous owner redirected some waste pipes. The old waste pipe was left open in the wall. Normally that wouldn't be an issue, but I'm in a flat and some of the waste water from the flat above mine was back-washing into the cut-off pipe. Thankfully it's not toilet water, but it's still nasty. I was already ripping out the dated kitchen to redecorate but the only stub wall in the entire flat is between the kitchen and the bathroom. Damp transferred through. Otherwise clean looking kitchen is jet black with mold behind the units. :puke:

    £7000 to fix everything. Happy I cancelled the order because now I have the hard cash for it. If I found this after buying a V8? Fuck me it would've been a nightmare!

    In the meantime I've been buying the odd few cheeky tickets off of BOTB for the Mustang and Stinger :giggle:
    Though, in all honesty given the circumstances, it's more for the £20k cash than the car itself.

    All looks great. I actually prefer the grill now. I want some 2018 cool covers :(

    Did sealing the intake path, lower the AIT values in any noticeable way? I understand the Ford Performance intake has a rubber gasket anyway? I've been considering getting the big mouth kit but I'm not sure what I'm doing regarding FI at the moment. Did it help any?

    Is there not a short period after closure where you can raise issues such as this with the previous owner? I believe there is in Scotland though never had to do it.

    I like to think it has, it feels nippier, although could just be a placebo affect. Removing the front grille and installing the VBM definitely has helped.

    It's his insurance that's paying for it. Hopefully for the full amount because this is nothing short of ridiculous. Next year, if I don't win BOTB, I'll be saving some cash for a new sports car. 2020 Mustang or Stinger should fit the bill, or I may even see about pre-ordering a Genesis G70.

    I also went for some Sunset shots...timed mine a little better :like:

    Actually went a little photo crazy yesterday. These are from 2 separate unplanned stops yesterday afternoon/evening - couldn't help myself as the sun came out after a few crappy days!

    Very excited to show these off! New camera lens (Canon 24mm) worth every penny! Enjoy...
