    3 weeks - filled it once ! Trying to resist changing bits on it, but the map needs looking at, as I've found it's been remapped, but it seems to be running lean according to the logs.

    I feel the same Nilz, couldn't bare to get rid of mine, too much love gone into it to ever want to let it go!

    Just over the 7 year mark now and she's definitely getting better with age.

    ...Phil or Grant Mitchell once referred to Kathy as an oldie but a goody:) I kind of feel the same about my car!!

    To be honest, ive hardly done anything to my car, but its just the fact I drive an S3 and its fully loaded, there are not many cars that are the whole package nowadays, without me forking out a good few K which unfortunately I dont have!!
