    Thanks for comments, does anyone now from the pics what wheels they are as I don't have a clue? plans are to check pcv and diverter, have ordered some new bulbs, after that probably a service and a remap, cruise control and RNSE, That's it i think lol

    The wheels are BBS or speedline 18" split rims. They're nice, even better in 19"...

    Nice car dude. It'll shift a bit once the remap's done.

    Lowering it slightly on cards? Will look even nicer on those wheels with a subtle drop.

    Thanks, hopefully this weekend I can check DV and PCV then all being well get it mapped, in regards to suspension I have no plans yet but will see how it handles after remap, might go down the arb route

    little update: have check PCV and its fine and checked DV valve and is fine with no splits (rev C) will change to a better one when it splits but fine for now, have bought another thermostat as mine is stuck open so that's the next job before I sort the remap out :)

    Massively common on these for the stat's to stick. Air/boost leaks don't tend to show themselves until the remap is done unfortunately!

    When I had the car in the air I did have a good check around and all the pipes seemed to be in tightly and securely but as you say how secure will soon show with a remap :)

    As long as you've checked everything you have done all you can do. I have had plenty of people who have rebuilt their cars and have assured me there will be no leaks etc. When they turn up for the mapping and we start putting the boost in, the cracks soon show! Usually something that we can sort fairly quickly :D

    Have managed to get coming home/leaving home lights working thanks to a guide on here (thanks very much), have a problem now with fault code p0441 so need to get this sorted and thermostat, i may eventually remap it if the car stops throwing its toys out the pram
