    Default Wooooohoooooooo

    Got my car back this afternoon from having a new clutch fitted. This is the first time since owning that i've really been able to put the power down due to slipping. What a beast!! I thought my remapped 2.0T was quick but the 2.8T remapped is just awesome.

    I've just clocked up 180 miles since picking it up at 14.30 this afternoon. I think this is a first for me but i can't wait to go to work tomorrow, purely for the drive

    Happy days.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    Not at all, A very respectful 22.6mpg. In the week prior to having the clutch done, normal driving it returned 29.9mpg. Very very impressed.

    The car is a credit to you Howard, You have certainly looked after her. As for the power, it just delivers it effortlessly and it doesn't seem to want to stop delivering it either, nothing is too much trouble.

    I'll get some piccys taken when I get her cleaned at the weekend. Smd conversion and foot well lights look awesome. Big big thanks to Kman. The Evo stars look great on her too. The only other thing I've done is transfer my Bosch Flat blade wipers from my old signum.

    Keep searching, the right one will come along soon.

    GLad your happy mate. Felt really bad after the clutch. I miss her so much though, the power is amazing and third gear just goes on and on and on. I doubt I'll be able to find anything else that I'll enjoy as much as that car.

    Told you it was worth it Kev... The difference in performance is phenomenal and the effortless delivery makes it all worth while ..

    Careful in the ice and snow ....power slides are incredibly easy
