    :laugh: I'm nearly finished now Dane.... But the Haldex I give 450 for it and after a couple of weeks driving with it on I wouldn't be without it I would pay 690 for it new..... They really are that good:applaus:

    Yeah the 3" tip should put a smile on your face, but be prepared for pipes blowing off with the extra lungs, mine and danes blew the turbo to charge shortly after fitting... suppose it finds the weaknesses, so better to highlight them

    On the end of the L shape metal tube (with the warning on it)follow it to the rear of the engine, you will see an orangy/red pipe, mine just snapped the jubilee so just keep an eye on it...i think only forge do one at around £60ish, except audi of course

    I currently have 2 of those hoses on order from Forge and they have been out of stock for about 5 weeks. Still waiting for new stock to arrive.

    It transfers more torque to the rear wheels under aggressive driving.... You cant tell any difference until you start givin it some beans. It reduces understeer and its great fun in the wet... On hard acceleration feels as if you are getting pushed as opposed to pulled car feels a lot more planted... Im sure someone else will have a more technical outlook on this, :readit:.... But thats my outlook on it:yes:
