It was never going to stay standard! I've had to put my mapping back a bit so will have to wait a little long!

I have had my satnav fitted today, big thank you to Bignod00 on here for fitting it and coding in for me. You're a star mate, also loving the needle sweep on start up  :happy2:

I've also fitted some paddle extensions. I'm not 100% convinced by them but I'll see how I get on with them

Thanks. I'm trying to have a clear direction on the mods and not get side tracked.
It's at AKS this Wednesday then R tech a week later. I can't wait to see what it makes!

Cars looking spot on, Love the carbon additions. Was considering getting that splitter. Where did you get the carbon rear from?  :smiley:

I bought them new on eBay from a Chinese seller. They came very fast, great communication from the seller. Plus the sell put on the invoice that I payed a lot less for them so I didn't pay a huge amount of import duty. I also bought a rear spolier extension that I've not fitted yet. I really can't complain at the price I bought them for but the fit of the side skirts isn't the best.

 :jumping: So I had a trip to AKS yesterday. As usual thanks to Alex for his first class work and problem solving!  :happy2:
So on went the Relentless 3.5" dp which needed a bit of work by Alex to mate up to the BCS cat back. Then a Peron inter cooler, TTRS calipers, Mintex pads and AP discs/Vagbremtechnic fitting kit.
Needless to say it was a different car that I drove home! I also had a chat with Alex about suspension setups and booked myself back in with him in September to get it sorted.
Next up is a trip to R Tech next week for Niki to work his magic.  :pomppomp:
