Went to Donnington today to pick up some brake/suspension parts. Must say the Blue 5EXI-R looked stunning, Terry and Mark certainly had their hands full talking to potential new builders..

That was my 5Exi on the back of AA going back to Marlin

Had a little problem with the engine mount (sheared bolt) so I couldn't risk driving it on the track or driving it home for that matter!

Shame that I never got to meet you all and sorry to all of you that were hoping to go for a spin with me! One of those days...

But how stunning was the blue 5Exi-R?!?! WOW!!
I tried talking Terry and Mark into swapping cars with me but they were not really all that interested

Regards to all,
Dylan

Bad luck Dylan. Hope all goes well.

Hopefully I'll be there with you next year.

Unlucky is the word!

To be honest even a flat tyre would have ruined the day so it didn't really matter what broke on the car..

It was the engine stabilising arm that let me down (the bit on the back of the engine - drive side, that you use to pull the engine forward and backward). It was one of the bolts that screws into the egine block - just broke in two... Can't really predict things like that happening!

Ah well... I managed to have 3 trackdays in the last few months and one more to come so I shouldn't really complain that much

Default New 5EXI

felt like jumping into the new car and taking round the track, hads to be satified with watching others, the coulour really does it justice. my good lady said, this is the coulour were going to have, dont seem like I have much choice here if I want dinner.

Sorry to hear about your probs Dylan.
