    what do you want to know? The fact its now clocked over 61,500 miles, had its cambelt etc replaced, going to cost me a new set of tyres on Tuesday plus tracking and that it looks like its been rallying........lol

    one bonus is I got my summer wheels refurbed for the price of 2 as the refurb company cocked up the colour

    equally, isnt your sig pic a little out of date Scott

    Found a leak coming from my EGR pipe so used it as an excuse to buy these



    sadly Forge forgot to supply the clamps so are sending them out today....i hope they fit because the last Forge product I bought wasnt a great fit......

    let me know who you use for detailing mate... My car needs a DA polish to get rid of the car wash scratches the previous owner inflicted on it!

    only driven it around town lol!

    No real difference. The one chance i did open it up on the dual carriageway there felt like a hesitation. I must pull my finger out and log the MAF as I have a sneaking suspicion its not doing what it should.....

    Well went to have the Forge pipes fitted last weekend and guess what......the EGR couple is WRONG

    spoke to Forge on Monday and they sent out various ones to try. Its going to be a case of 3rd time lucky............maybe I should have just saved up for the Darkside hardpipe kit as at least I wouldnt have had to source new o-rings and jubliee clips



    And some new additions

    Saw your car at Volksvest last month and was impressed with it! how did you get the coming home lights configured?

    under Module 9 - Central Electronics. You just enable fogs as DRL's and adjust the brightness down to approx 25%. They work as proper fogs when you pull the headlight switch into position

    mines a 57 plate car and I tried this on my mates 56 but his module didnt support the function

    Does it require any additional wiring?

    Just realised you were asking about the coming home lights! Not the DRL's!

    mine was just coding, no wiring. Just remeber they work no matter what time of day! I tend to disable them come the lighter months

    There is this kit but its for Golfs so I'm hoping that they release a kit for the Audi's

I thought about it for about 2 seconds before saying yes so I was booked in for the pipe to be fitted today. Left sunny South Wales at 6am this morning and arrived at Midland VW just before 8.30am made it there before Topher


    Car was taken into the workshop were removal began. About 40 minutes later i was asked to have a look expecting to see it almost ready....to be greeted with this...











    Yes that would be the pipe NOT fitting


    Thankfully though all was not lost as the clever chaps at Midland VW came up with an idea...


    Chop chop



    And back together again






    Net result is 205bhp and 320lbs ft torque, not a massive increase (torque is unchanged) but the throttle is sharper and it just pulls so much harder past 3000rpm. MPG seemed to be up too despite me having a bit of fun on the way home!




    No smoke, no poke!





    Want to say a big thank you to everyone at Midland VW for making me feel welcome and letting me wander around having a close up look at how they operate; they put most main dealers to shame!!! Really great bunch of people
    Loving the idea of the down pipe - what MPG are you getting and roughly how much is it for just the standard pipe?

    i havent monitored it for ages but the DPF delete gave me anything from another 30-50miles per tank. I normally see approx 500 miles mixed driving, less if around town, bit more on the motorway. Still got some map tweaks to make nit I need to fit the EGR delete as it has a take off built into it then i can fit a temp boost gauge and see whats happening. Car is currently running 1.65bar but VCDS cant see that high lol

    with regards to cost I got it from the guys who write my maps for next to nothing
