    I've only very recently started testing so not very experienced yet, have to look in the manual quite a bit but we've all gotta start somewhere:icon_thumright:

    The fact you obviously know how to use a PC means you should pick it up in no time, I used to put tests through myself under 'fallback' so went through it all. When it first started there was loads of hassle with the 'old boys', guys who'd never used a PC and in some ways were scared of them. Anyone younger has dealt with PC's through school so its not an issue.

    One funny story was of an inspection done prior to the system being installed. The garages all received a pack saying what they'd need to provide before the installers turned up. This just consisted of a clean(ish) desk space, x cm wide and z cm deep, and a power/phone socket.

    When the pre-installation check was carried out they found the guy had literally taken a pick tohis garage floor and dug a hole, x cm wid and x cm deep in the concrete. :lmfao: :lmfao:

    Anyway, thread jacking aside, thats a very nice looking motor.

    Got no real plans for the car at the min, maybe a re-map and a stainless exhaust at some point but other than that the car will stay standard.

    Any recomendations for re-maps or exhausts?

    try stealth racing in southam and ask for a revo remap trial,it lasts for a few hours but lets you know what power you get,if you did decide to get revo don't bother with buying the module you could change settings using mine

    Thanks for that, i was thinking REVO or AMD but think the free revo trial is a good selling point and also there is a revo dealer with 15 miles from me so will give them a try in the future.

    What about exhausts? Miltek seem to be popular but i had a Supersprint on my M3 and it was top quality, good sound, perfect fit, also heard good things about Eisenmann?

    Hi mate, what M3 did you have?

    Mine was a L reg 3.0, 286BHP, sold it with 68k on the clock and was probably in better condition than my 52 reg S3 :o.k:
