    Waving to the fans while ploughing through the gravel trap, legend.

    It dumps boost when traction is lost. It's part of the also gay and mincy ESP system.

    It's a boost control solenoid for the traction control.

    Basically, encompasses a LOT of unnecessary pipework which is prone to leaking and causing other issues.

    Um I'm no expert but basically

    On top of our 1.8T engines is a small chamber under vaccum.
    The N249 valve can open this chamber and force the divertor valve open and you loose boost.
    It usually does this as part of the traction control/esp system.
    Theres a lot of unecessary ancillary pipe work that goes with it, these perish and create vac leaks
    removing all of this, running one small silicone pipe and leaving the N249 electronically connected improves engine idle, throttle response and stops the n249 ruining the fun

    Ok, I might have to nick the misses or buy one.
    You think we will have power near the cars?
    My 240V socket in the car can't power hair dryers.

    That's the kind of corner you want to loose it on if you loose it on the Nordeshlief Nurburgring! One with loads of gravel!

    There is another one where you heat the panel up and then spry compressed air at the dent and it pops out.

    Couldn't agree more. Did you see her on the Graham Norton show? Her dress was so short. At one point i physically leaned to the side to try see up it, my mrs gave me the look of death haha.
