    Know the feeling, had mine a year in December and it seemed really quick and pulled away really well and quickly. Now it just seems like any other car!

    All I do is moterway/dual carriageway driving and hate it when a 1.1/1.2 overtakes me when I'm doing a reasonable speed myself.

    I go through phases of "car depression" where (especially when its dirty) the car just isn't the same car you bought. Loads of rattles and squeeks, you notice every fault and its seems slow and handles badly.

    The best cure i've found is a sunday afternoon wash and a blast out the road to dry it off

    Works every time

    this is the problem with auto adaptive engine ecu's if you spend a few days driving slowly around town then this is how the ecu sees the "driving style" of the car and this is how it then drives - take it onto the motorway and an "enthusiastic" driving style will relearn the ecu and then for the next few days the car will drive better as thats how the ecu has relearnt

    the moral of the story - an enthusiastic 10 mile drive at least once every day will keep your car running very sweet and you smiling

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    Not to be dispresctful but i've never heard of that? All ECU's are programmed to operate within certain tolerances etc, so that should have no bearing what so ever surely.

    If i'm wrong I hold my hands up and apologise

    No he's right, cars learn the way they are driven and adjust to suit. That is why if you fit a panel filter/induction kit you should disconnect the battery to let the ecu learn new parameters

    and why when your remapped the car takes a while to learn the new driving style

    hence the auto adaptive part of the ecu
