    Default Maptun so far

    Well I have to say the car feels absolutley fabulous - appears to be running better than previously when normal driving - maybe fueling by cheap remap last time round or something like that.

    I finally got some time to test her yesterday up to legal limits in a safe fashion and she really does move now. I had an st220 follow me round an island which goes from and to Nspeed limit roads and it was just left for dead to be fair.

    some plonka in a fabia vrs (new shape) tried it this morning and had nothing on me at all.

    I was then nearly put into a field by a transit joing the m6 this morning as he didnt bother to check his lanes and pulled into my lane (inside slow lane) while I was sat next to him doing 70. Nothing wakes you up in the morning compared to the thought of flying into a field a 70 mph lol. Its ok though i managed to brake and pull into the little road next to me while he continued to enter my lane. At least he put his hazzards on after to say sorry - i hope he got a puncture personally lol.

    Nope just changed disks and pads all round few mths back.

    I dont do track or santa pod days its just my everyday car. if i hit the brakes at 70 mph in a standard 2.0T or hit the same brakes at the same speed in a modified 2.0T i will stop in the same distance. If i was racing around corners etc on tracks or silly enough to race on the road I would upgrade them - for my driving I see no point in doing so.
