disc's ordered -
indeed have ordered the new 315x28mm Lexus LS400 discs so hopefully they'll be here soon. Also got some standard caliper bolts from Toyota but alas they are too short to fit through the adaptor bracket into hub / new caliper's. So will need to source some M12 x 1.25 x 30mm 12.9 screw bolts just to make things a bit more secure. Can't have the brakes bolted on with a wing and a prayer. Seems to be the season for brake upgrades though I'm doing it the hard way
Not going to be able to fit all this together til Feb at the earliest, got a few things on with work so no time to do anything else.

cold slimy roads + 2nd gear at 16ish psi =
wheelspin and the tail sliding out. Mmmm I won't be doing that again with quite the same free and easy not paying attention attitude. This was in a straight (wasn't so straight afterwards) line lol. A quick feather of the throttle and it came back into line. Funnily, the beemer behind me stayed a lot further back from then on. Ho hum
Messenger Live Multiple logins at once -
having been forced to update to Live Messenger I started the trawl round the internet to find how to get more than one login running. Turns out MS already provide a way to do this without using third party software. Perfect! All that's needed is a registry hack.....er ok I can do that. It is very simple and I found it on this blog
and yep it works. The steps are listed below but check out the blog for more info. Obviously you need to have more than one login account otherwise why would you need to have more than 1 messenger running :-)
Run Registry Editor (regedit).
Navigate to the following registry key:
For 64-bit (x64) OS, go to following registry branch instead:
In the right pane, right click on any blank space, select New on context menu, and then click on DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Name the new registry value entry as MultipleInstances.
Modify the MultipleInstances and set its value data as 1.
Start as many Windows Live Messenger windows as you want from Start Menu.

MOT passed -
brakes still feel a bit funny but it's pushing me to get the bits for the BBK together and then in the new year get it fitted. Got a bit on over the next 2 odd months with work so messing with the car isn't an option. That and the pish weather we have!
Kumho KU31's? yeah the 255x40 certainly are sitting good on the wheel and do fill the arches. Obviously haven't had a chance to push them yet but will bed them in nicely and see if they rub with cornering load. Not likely in this weather though at least I have a full tread to lean on!
