Recent change is removing the Competizione badge from the rear of my car.

Image

Hopefully this weekend, my 595 badges will be painted black, and I'll have a black tow strap hanging from the front, because racecar :lol:

Also step 1 of my "line up" is in process, my coilovers have been ordered.

Waiting until the summer before I plan to go to Italy with the hopes I can collect my bonnet in person.

Hoping to have the spoiler by Christmas :green:

Possibly a stupid question but why are you removing the Competizione badge? Asthetics or something else?

595 in black should look great with the rest of your colour scheme

Mainly cosmetic, gives it a sense of uniquity.

Also because I sense it'll be a pain to paint that badge black too :laugh:

Also discovered a nice set of red alloy center caps which would go nicely with my brake / stripe combination.

The small things are all starting to add up! :D

Now that's my style of things :lol:

Looking forward to seeing the finished results

Neither my bolt nor coils arrived today. Looks like just a paint job this weekend :(

Current update:

Bolt arrived over the weekend. Have the Sabelt strap now attached to the front.

Badges were not painted due to the bad weather. Would like all 3 done at the same time, and while I have a sheltered driveway, it is not accommodated to do all 3 at the same time.

My coils have arrived today, and I'm hoping Brian's brother in law is free at some point next week to have them fitted! :green:
Thinking of a suitable drop, if anyone has any suggestions? I'm thinking around 45-50mm drop?

I would suggest leave them standard height til the springs bed in, then drop it... after some miles, measure from your arch to where you want it to sit on the tyre, and reduce by that much. Oh.. and as soon as you have the wheels back on, get 4 wheel lazer alignment done.

Thank you Stuart, sounds a plan for me. I heard they can drop a bit after they've settled in, so that may be a good choice!

Alignment was next on my list after getting the springs fitted!
