Thread: Going back to 888......

    Default Going back to 888......

    As my car is part of the development program at VXRPC I had another phone call from 888 this afternoon to let me know that the next set of Bilstein dampers are ready for me to test...

    So the car will be going back in to have the next batch of Bilsteins fitted with a different valve setup... having already run the first set around the Nurburgring I should be able to get a good idea what the new dampers feel like.

    Should be going in either Thursday this week or sometime next week.

    Will keep you all posted.

    Steve

    how did u manage to get this "tester" deal with 888 dude?

    do you basically get your whole car kitted out at their expense?

    are you a journalist or something?

    *jealous*

    I have no idea how I got on the development program

    I just kept turning up to buy stuff, and one day 888 said would I like to participate in new stuff, I said "yeah why not", and here I am.... Classified !!

    I do have a lot of spare time to 'pop' in at their request though, so that helps... .... and I'm prepared to 'use' the stuff they put on the car, rather than just keep polishing it

    So some stuff I can tell you about, and some stuff I'm not allowed to tell you about !!

    No, If I could get my car kitted out at their expense, it would be green/red/black and look like a touring car already..lol

    Seeing as you are such a man on the inside you couldn't see if you could lay your hands on a 888 sticker for my engine cover.

    They didn't have any when I had my remap done

    Cheers

    I assume you mean the blue one with 888 Engineering on it?

    Hmmm easier said than done, I tried this before and they want to charge £10 per sticker !!

    I got mine free with the remap, but extra ones cost money and I dont know if you want to spend £10 on a 888 sticker ?

    They certainly wont give me one for free thats for sure !!
