    Well car went in for a oil and oil filter change saturday but while is was in my mate said, do you want me to flush and treat the engine with this new, forte engine flush and treatment, i was a bit wery but said yeah why not.

    Flushed the enigne and said it came out like piss, so nice clean engine then :).

    My god, that combined with a green cotton panel filter, its like a new car all together.

    The car just picks up some much quicker and feels so smooth and torquey, its like a whole new beast, revs and breaths so so so well. Only problem is it likes its fuel abit more now or maybe thats my right foot loving the new power and sound of the filter :w00t:

    Both tim, it comes as a twin pack, first you use the flush then you use the treament.

    I just removed the standard air feed that runs into the wing, i did it even before the new filter and flush etc and the engine pulled harder etc, its too restrictive.

    I'm having my car 'freshened up' tomorrow.

    Booked it in for full service with local Bosch garage - taking it off LongLife and on to regular servicing, plus Haldex oil & filter too.
    Also having an annoying rattle sorted (hopefully) and DV and TIP fitted (didn't get chance to fit them at the weekend).
    I'm expecting the car to feel refreshed!

    was looking at this the other day as midland vw have started to use their flushes. definately worth it by the sounds of things.
