    Yeah, you've supplied around 1/2 of the active TQS owners with them! :beerchug::beerchug:
    As well as an FMIC and an array of knowledge...

    Doubt it on the ED38 front, cars not in show condition, so AITP will probably be the 1 and only for me this year. How come you're not going to AITP?

    stage 2 map will keep me happy then its a case of making the thing look mint wanna go in show and shine for most shows next year so the detailing addiction will become worse lol good bye weekends hello hours of cleaning hehe.

    ive looked at some fast cars but when ever i go shows its nothing about how fast the car is its how nice it looks and the way it sits.
    i did look at air ride while at awesome yesterday £1k for some bags not bad but had just fitted the coilovers so sticking with them and waiting for them to bed in so can wind them down some more.

    the car will be low but not slow. 230 bhp will keep me happy took mums tt out the other day and 225 bhp is decent power so extra 5 possibly 10bhp will do me fine keeps it reliable and nippy.

    the gt30 etc has gone way out of the window hybrid is a possibility for the future i think the car will be staying for longer than expected after the attention i got off it yesterday at the show made me think not a bad car after all just need so tweeking and bits of touching up and we onto a winner reesy

    It's 102 Ron dude :D even better!

    I forget the name of the place, but it's the blue station in adeneau, and it's a sister company of BP, as the 102 is Ultimate 102 with the same logo as BP ultimate.

    Amazingly, the 102 in adeneau was also 1c cheaper per litre than Eds was for 97 Ron super!

    I ran the track car on it when i was last there, and it bloody flew!

    That's the one. We normally stay at the hotel in Adenau that is just after the bridge after the petrol station.

    I did a lap last year with VCDS logging the whole lap and I hardly got any timing pull at all on the 102 octane, it's great stuff.

    the exhaust may have to be put back further people as woke up saturday morning to find a nice big key mark all the way down one side of me car and because its pearl i have to get the full side resprayed.

    if i find the lad who did it he will never look the same again i will make sure off that.

    so £500 down the drain to get whole side resprayed pita.

    had to cancel edition also because dont think car will be ready for show and shine so saves me a bit of money that way but rearly wanted to go.

    Are you coming to ADI mate?

    Shame about the car, especially when it was nearly ready for the show and shine. Do you think they'll be able to match it in o.k?

    Not entirely sure what going to happen about the exhaust now anyway, after walking around AITP, and seeing all the S3's, I'm very tempted.

    not a clue westy my m8s car got done on same night so think some one round warrington dont like mine and me m8s 350z although i have parked the car in the same spot at my gf's for 4 years and no problem until friday night it got keyed.


    £500 for full side repray and also all touch ups ie stone chips on roof bonnet other wing and inside door sills so car will be fuly done at once and wingmirrors painted also.


    the exhaust and remap are going on the back burner untill next yr as gonna get interior done and do my boot build and make sure car is show preped for first show of the year next yr. in a way its stoped me going all out getting every thing at once and can now finish the car excluding exhaust and map which i can look forward to for early next year. i still will be having the bgrakes of ya westy this weekend will send payment.


    car is going in for every show and shine next yr as i will be locked in the garage with the car detailing and sorting out the look of the car then will finally start a thread on ere of the progress.

    lol thought the s3's might change your mind, i would do the same but would want the same colour but s3 so gonna just carry on with the exhaust and map etc but gonna leave them till next year now.

    unfortunatly i wont be at either aitp or edition 38 this year car is going into hibernation for some major detailing and interior and tidying up modifications. so once ive sorted out the paint issue will start a plan with the interior and the audio then move onto under the bonnet over winter this year have all preped for show and shine next yr starting at ultimate dubs.

    hoping to get some awards and stuff with the car.

    That's cool, I'm hoping to have them off the car tomorrow and I'll get pics of the DS2500s too.

    I'll be sorting out my paintwork next year.

    Westy - Leave it and keep picking up awards for it, albeit wooden spoons.

    Syvo, I would still recommend a remap, it's not majorly expensive, but well worth it. Even if you don't do anything else, performance wise.

    I cant see the video but is it the older supercharged version? If so i`d get a normal Cooper S and spend the difference on modding it. Work out cheaper than buying a GP works in the first place. My mate had one and then had an induction kit, intercooler and 19% pully fitted and it went from standard 165bhp odd to around 215bhp. That was only like 1100quids worth. Handle pretty good as standard so just a set of springs would be ideal to start with.

    He got his done at 1320 mini in St Neots and they said for the small amount of work it had done it was one of the highest figures they`d seen.

    The newer turbo engines are pretty poor and arent as tunable so he`d tell me from reading over the mini forums.
