hi everybody, new on here..
Well i aquired the above car a month and a half ago after owning a standard 150bhp fwd a3 for over 2 years.
After reading around everybody pretty much agress and says there is no noticable difference between the two cars speed wise when u take in to account the weight of the quattro system etc...well i was very surprised the first time i drove my new car - it feels so much faster in every way not just around the corners as suggested. of course thought, round the corners...first 4wd car...mmm
I took the car to my local specialist (A.V.I.T - top guys) in slough to see if i could get it chipped because they were offering some 6 hour free trial thing which sounds like a good way to try before you buy.. Anyway turns out the re-chipping computer tinks my cars a seat leon cupra R?? and it wouldn't accept the new flash code...? so i dont know whats going on...
Car is fine in every other way apart form the fact the(surprise!)waterpump impeller broke the other day...
i let one of the boys take it for a spin and he said it feels like its might have had a mild chip but he cant be sure without getting it on the rollers...
It does feel faster than i thought it would be...not complaining!! just want to know whats going on.
