    Yes mines the 1.8t (190). Got the coilpacks from awesome gti as they were cheaper than my mechanic could get them for trade! I can't really tell any difference yet as it was running badly before and I've not done any real miles yet....

    Attempted to fit my towbar between downpours;

    Can't find my Jigsaw to cut the crashbar.

    Someone borrowed my soldering iron and didn't return it :(

    Nice! Be warned the plastic engine cover won't sit perfectly once you upgrade! Not a major issue though!

    wiper is 2010 Passat mate.

    Debadging is for BMW drivers that can't afford the 3.5 so they take the badges off their 1.6 and pretend.

    Not really. Personally I think it looks cleaner and smarter without badges.

    Maybe if the badges on yours were the right ones and in the right place it would look better?

    Each to their own i guess.

    Hi Adam

    Ron has a 1.8t system for me but its one piece and wont fit in an avant :(

    So Ron is working out an answer on how to get it home.
    Maybe i could strap it on my roof rails ???

    Early days yet John; but so far it seems a little smoother, pulls a little bit stronger and the mpg is slightly improved.
