    Yeah, good idea!!!

    Me and Mr GSi3.2 had a right job trying to sort mine out, I had a radio code, but it was the wrong one.

    Normal day to day running, i dont think it makes a huge difference, but, last Saturday night i was out and about about 2230ish, when its a lot cooler, and it made a hell of a difference then.

    as long as it doesn't effect the ECU or the DPF then I will do it.

    To tell if its full canbus, here is a quote from a thred I posted last month:-
    "if you have the scroll wheel steering wheel, not the one with 6 pushbuttons, then you won't need to enter any radio code.."

    If you want this thred, just do a search for "wally"
