No sequential price yet, but it is pneumatic.

Wheels can be standard, forged alloy or carbon. No price yet for forged, but carbon as already mentioned, just under 10K.

What is interesting is that for a change the chassis is satin black, rather than Silver as standard.

Also, there's a likely delay between having the final cut and getting their web guys to publish them on the web site.
It does look like the website will need an update, regardless of the options. For example, the Spec lists and LSD, whereas that's an option. Also on the colour section it states it comes with a silver chassis, when apparently it doesn't.

Well my 12k budget didn't last long. Looks like I will have to increase my budget a bit. Still glad they brought out a 350bhp upgrade, shame it comes with sports exhaust which cannot be used on tracks due to noise, but still exactly the kind of prices I expected.

They need to be flexible about that, and explain the details. ASAP.

I don't want the sports exhaust (for track noise limits), but you cannot buy the remap and decat separately. All i want is the decat and remap but its not offered. No idea why a decat is not even on the list as an individual option.

If the remap is not suitable with the stock exhaust what do users of the 350 kit do on track? You can change the exhaust and even fit the cat, but you can't remap! :doh:

Two options I can think of:

1) They will, and you'll save 330 quid.
2) They can't do 350bhp without the sports exhaust, too big a restriction on the exhaust gasses, or similar.

Went into ecotune who are my local mappers and a straight forward “tune” for the latest honda type r is £549 and 350bhp....£2.5k does seem steep

If you can't get an extra 30BHP without the back box there is no point paying £2700ish for a remap and decat pipe.

Cat bypass pipes used to be circa £150 from Ariel. Which ever way you cut it you are looking at a ~£2,500 remap. :o

I have asked Tom previously if they were OK for me to publish the options and prices here and he said please don't.

You'll note that they never post any pricing info on their own web site.
