tried to wait till everything was done till posting but ....

planned and necessary

1st June MOT

- new tyres £400
- discs/pads allround £300

whim and impulse buy

- hh tuning chip £200
- k&n induction £80

unplanned and pita

wheel bearing £80
battery £60
squeaky bl**dy non-gen pads £?

chip is great although has possibly induced a slip? in the tiptronic box,unsure whether this is electronic or mechanical

I keep playing with the settings in the chip and it does make a difference or it maybe a loose wire or the box maybe pooped. any thoughts

filter is awesome am like a kid with a new toy boost-whoosh-boost-whoosh and so on

apparently the only diff between non-gen and gen pads is a foam/squidgy type backing that reduces the squeal and my friendly mechanic has a fix in mind. fingers crossed for trip to the lakes next week

oh and one of these too

now this really is fantastic

i have a skate park and a disused quarry near me at home and an empty gravel car park on nights [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/dancing.gif[/img]
