    And I am well chuffed, the car looks so damn good in black /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    One thing I was not expecting is to be able to hear the turbo sucking, not that I mind, it just screams FAST! also the throaty note of the exhaust (not blowing or anything) it is quite throaty low down until revs build up, if you know what I mean? The car handles so much better than my beemer and who said 4 wheel drive is not fun, it makes the Pirelli boots it has on stick like glue. Managed to get the dealer to fill it up with Optimax as well /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Just ordered the chrome mirrors from JBR and got 5% discount for being on this forum /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif
    Next is the AMD remap...... and then, who knows!

    Nice one.

    Mine is black too - beautiful when polished, gloomy when dirty! That's black for you.

    I agree you can hear the turbo sucking but it's not as loud as my previous Golf GTI 1.8T, that turbo was very loud.

    I also agree the exhaust has a lovely growl.

    Enjoy the ride.
