    SHCTOP!! This thread isnt ready yet !

    for it to be completely ready.. you need to allow me to take it for a quick spin round the block to ensure these claims of good performance... im sure 190 odd through the a50 tunnel by the meir (sp) would create somewhat of a nice sound ;)

    I hope it's black and has anthracite wheels. If it doesn't, I'll be forced to drive up to Stoke and slap you with a wet fish. Black is the only colour the Turbos should be allowed to be sold in. :p
