    £300 seems a bit steep - anyone got any other suggestions?

    thanks for the USEFUL suggestion but it may be better applied as an oxygen input restriction device on your oral and nasel area.




    only joking !!! I think it might blow off the car when I go down the road!

    The film is probably the way to go, but then how much is that compared to a front end blow in?

    At least if you went down the save the pennies route, it'd make it easier to integrate a few mods like splitters etc!!
