    200bhp on a hybrid, seems a bit low tbh & hardly seems worth the upgrade cost, as a stock one would do 185ish, I would expect easily 220-230 everyday of the week on a hybrid.

    I have been looking at s3 brakes but there quite expensive what do I need to change over? And I know I wasn't putting like 220bhp and people start moaning that it won't get that much but you just shut anybody up and most companies were quoting 200bjp that's why I'm gonna go with fr tuning because they said about 220 but need a decat etc and are reasonably priced
