Are we doing old money pits or just current money pits?

Cheers

Current selection -

BMW X5 E70 3.0SD

Dropped an exhaust valve, bounced around cylinder one, became molten and back fired through to the other 5 cylinders, then carried on into the turbos and seized them �� ££££'s to get fixed. Was running 400bhp with outrageous torque, But going hybrids this time round and aiming for 500bhp if we can.

Mercedes cls 320

Bought this off me brother to use while the X5 is broken.
Needed a new air ride compressor, onto its third turbo, new brakes and needs 2 drive shafts and rear shocks because its sitting that low.


Spire GTR

Bought this with me mate to use for track days.
It's running a cbr1000 engine so the body needs modifying to accommodate it. Brand new tyres, brakes, suspension, exhaust ££££

Cheers
