Its a while since I've last updated.
Been keeping up with the boring stuff, routine maintenance, got it through MOT etc.
Got the car Revo'd back in December by Chris at TG Performance after getting their black Friday promotion. Great service,and absolutely love the map. Then to carry on the performance side of things, got a Eurojet De-cat turbo back on a few weeks later, after MOT. Exhaust is spot on for what I was after, minimal increase in day-to-day noise but sounds awesome when your going for it. Need to play about to get it sitting exactly right, but otherwise very happy. Especially considering it was less than the price of most cat-backs alone.
Hope to get an intake sorted then get her mapped up to stage 2, but with other plans this will like be another month or 2 yet.
Otherwise, just been enjoying driving it. My GFs Dad owns a B&B up in Glenarm, which I've been using as an excuse to rake through the Mournes on a regular basis.
Also put the CH-Rs back on despite the winter. Though I'd imagine they'll hold up better to the elements than the factory monzas.
Then most recently I ordered a set of SRS tec 25mm wider wings, so I could run lower without any rubbing issues. I contacted the UK dealer and as luck would have it, he knew of a MK6 Golf set painted in candy white for sale privately. Took a punt on them in the hope they would be a good colour match and save me a few hundred quid having to paint a new set, however Parcelforce seemed to damage them in transit over from England, and don't cover body panels in their insurance, so not so lucky. (Colour match was perfect too! Bastid!) Not any extensive damage by any means, but damaged none the less.
Fitted them yesterday (they've to go to paint anyway) and dropped the car down to go into max lowz sc3n3 mode.
Love how it looks but it's in dire need of a chassis notch, so will be raising it up in the mean-time. And if I'm not happy with how it drives post-chassis notch I'll probably just raise it back up and get rid of the wings and not bother with sc3n3 lowz altogether. Want a good all-rounder, and I'm getting to old for this low car trailing about everywhere carry on.
Otherwise, it's going to get the number plate recess smoothed and wings repaired soon, then brakes fitted, intake and stage 2. Also have a set of LED tail lights on the way. Should be done by Dubshed and leave me free to enjoy the car for the better weathered months. Hoping to try some drag / track / hill climb days with it too.
I'm sure there's other stuff I've forgotten to add, but sure.
Cheers for reading.
