Nice looking car. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
On the Relentless 3.5" dp. Is it one of the originals or the revised revision? I have one of the early ones fitted and was told that you should fit a poly bush in the dog bone mount. This is due to the flexy being to small and it will cause the hanger to fail.

Thanks :)

It's the new version but I plan to fit a poly mount insert anyway! Just had a quick look at your project thread and love what you've done with your car! What issues did Alex have mating up to the BCS catback? Hoping I can fit straight onto my scorpion with no messing about!

Looking at your photos it looks like the old version with the smaller flexy. Either way if your fitting the insert you'll be ok. I hate the bloody insert though it vibrates so much it g t I n my tits.
Alex had to fabricate a section to make it line up with the BCS. It's the section after the dp with the lambda boss welded in. I'm not sure if it's just because I have the BCS prestige cat back with the extra silancer. Alex message Sam with what he had to do. So it might be worth asking Sam to make sure. Other wise it looked a well made but it's of kit for the price.
Thanks, I'm happy with how the mods are going so far. I'll definitely keep an eye on you thread  :happy2:

Ah ok the pic is one ive pinched from Sams page! My downpipe is winging its at fro China as I type this lol.

Next week we will see, fingers crossed that issue may have been resolved in the new tweaked design.

The catback has landed, resisting the urge to get it fitted is tough!

Long overdue an update here, haven't been able to upload and pics as I had to use a crappy iPhone 4S until my 7plus arrived!

So the full exhaust arrived:










Fitted! Sounds mega, a bit noisey but can be driven around fairly easily if needed.

Exhaust sounds great! Has a proper tone to it not just noise if that makes sense. It's loud though! Cold starts are fairly bad, not as bad as my old focus RS mk2 that would set off my neighbours car alarm at 5am  :rolleye:

 Vid to come!

Eibach sportlines  :happy2:


Sits nicely, rides super smooth but another 10mm lower up front would have been ideal but for £145 delivered you can't grumble! Wheels need spacing out a touch.



Spent a couple hours cleaning and painting up my bargain front calipers from an 8V S3

No DCC mate, rides nice and smooth without it too even on the 19's.

Replaced cam follower yesterday unsure if it had ever been changed but I now have piece of mind.



And finished off the brakes this morning ready to go on. Found some gti stickers similar to the mk7 gti PP brakes

Here's a quick vid of the exhaust swap over and before/after runs.

It may not sound it from the vid but it's 10x better now!

Yeah it's really hard to capture sound properly and the GoPro doesn't have the best mic lol
