Aah that confused you! It's me who has the bonnet seals not DarrenM :-)(apologies if that's incorrect)

Go get them mate, they are easy to buy from the dealer and only 13 each so even if they don't make a huge difference at least it's cheap!
And you're right, they do indeed look cool :-)

PS - Simon's going to be well p*ssed off, as he had the idea for the bonnet seals to make his a bit different and now we are all getting them :-)

You have to remeber that with the little wheels and A032's they are 205/50 series tyres. This gears it down a bit but also because the sidewall is smaller the car sits lower on the road. On the aero front, I don't know whether the covers do make any difference but I am considering doing the evo3 bonnet seals, like you have. They look kind of neat and I am sure must improve the airflow over the bonnet.

ROops your car looks real low in the recent pics taken at Brands (on your website). I like the headlight protectors, probably helps to make the car a litle more aerodynamic too with those on :)


You are welcome to try it. Mine is a Momo Corse, I don't know what size but it is small. Much smaller than the standard wheel and smaller than most replacement wheels. It does make the steering a tad heavier but personally I much prefer it over the standard wheel. If you are having head room problems make sure you seat is at it' lowest point, I dont have any problems with my legs hitting the steering but it is a tight squeeze with my head once I have my helmet on. I am away on Saturday for two weeks so we could meet up after that, and you can give it a try.

Apologies for not asking you first, I forgot you had a Momo.
What Diameter is yours? (ooh er missus!)
If I could try it some day that would be great, maybe we could coincide it with when I go to Bexleys to pick up my strut brace? (if it ever arrives! I think it must be being cast from purest platinum it taking so long :-))

Did you get any extra leg-room thanks to the Momo?
I was hoping that with the smaller wheel I would be able to lean my seat back a bit more and gain a tad more head-room (ready for my skid-lid).
