did you let the dude from ROTA know? he was pretty pissed when i told him about the state of the boxes and the damaged rim, said he has been having trouble with the couriers a fair bit lately.

Yep - the Rota guy had to get his star track customer service rep to sort out my problem

That person knew what she was doing as sorted it out within an hour

Everybody else in star track was useless

So I can see why Rota are not impressed

awkward moment when I have had spacers since i purchased the car without knowing :/ at least this means the +28 will still have an aggresive look, I will post post pics of how the stock tyres look. I'm a bit shitty that they still gave me a roadworthy when i bought the car tbh, my mech told me to call up the dealership and tell them i got defected for not being roadworthy and the car is still in the same state as it was since i bought it. Over a year though, probably will try to accuse me of putting them on

Update - i STILL HAVENT received my replacement wheel from ROTA, not happy at all, when i asked for a tracking number they gave me the original one. If I haven't received it by Wednesday I think I will be contacting the accc, get them to kick rota up the butt! Their communication over the last week and a half has been dismal to say the least. Its annoying because the initial blunder wasn't their fault(it was the couriers).

Frustrating when these situations unfold

I've got two parts that have been on order for 3 months

Cancelled one and got my money back

The other vendor won't respond to me

PITA

What is giving me the shits the most is the fact that The other 3 wheels are sitting in my garage with tyres on already just waiting for this other one! gives me the shits because until it comes i dont really want to take my car out for a spin, cause the 2 front tyres are way unroadworthy and I cant really afford a pointless fine.

Man - that sucks

 

Spray the rear wheels with black plastic dip (can remove it later)?

I went with federal 595 r-sr And I have been pleasantly surprised, on road it's very nice in track they are top notch when they get warm, I would never buy another tyre moving forward

      Night and day between the two and in a good way. Where the stock sounds like a asthmatic broken lawn mower the Invidia has a nice rumble to it low down and opens up to a pleasant scream above 3500 - 4000 rpm. Titanium tips sit a little proud and are a bit gaudy but suit the style of the car so i dont mind. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

      That's right, keen to do something like that. Still not sure about the HFC's though-some thread comments below:   Having had a Stillen CBE on its own and a Stillen + HFCs, I’d say a Stillen with stock cats would be a good option for a roadster” -To be honest though the stillen doesn’t need the hfc, especially with the roadster -If you dont want constant loud humming or a loud exhaust in general, then stay away from the hfcs. There is a thread where some guys returned them to stock and couldnt be happier. They said the hfc just made the cabin that much more noisy and annoying.   Did you put the Invidia on after you bought your car? Happy with the improvement compared to stock? Cheers,

      Yeah I remember seeing it for sale on autotrader and thinking it looked like it's been well cared for.

      Sounds good. I also saw that you were enquiring about an CBE and HFC set up. Would like to hear that once its installed if possible as i currently have an Invidia CBE and am considering the HFCs. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
