Update.

So got a few parts fitted.

Scorpion downpipe with sportscat.
Vwr600 intale
Vwr turbo elbow
Vwr muffler delete
Airtec intercooler
Apr dogbone mount

Stage 2 apr map done at ecotune. It made 408bhp and 436ftlb.

Car does feel fast etc but i'm not sure i like everyday driving with it stage 2, see how it goes in next couple of weeks.

Had a nightmare with potholes or craters. Buckled a wheel and got it fixed and then today 4 days of having it back i kerbed that wheel. Not kerbed a wheel in about 10year so i've made up for it

Decided i'm going back to oz wheels, always had a soft spot for them. Seen a cracking deal for a last set of superturismo's in grapthite.

Small update.

Finally got the brakes and the wheels on.

Chuffed with them, but i can see myself getting the wheels done black in the future.

Was tinkering with the idea of getting the calipers done in yellow. But nearly £300 to get then professionally done i thought was a bit steep. So keeping them all black.

Nextweek got the silenced mid section going on and thats it about done. Well for now.

Hi mate. Yes i did. Tbh i don't like it stage 2 race mode is great. But normal mode is basically redundant now as it sits in 4th gear till your above 60mph unless you go into manual.

I liked the grey aswell. But just always had a thing for black wheels haha.

Cheers. It is a weapon. I think if i had it a few years ago not being as sensible, i would of had my licence took off me

So is it worth it?. I'm danger close to stage1 Revo and I'm unsure of the DSG's map worth.  Cheers

When i was stage 1 it was perfect and id say its worth it. Think being stage 1 you are safe to stay standard with the dsg. But stage 2 you need it.

If it was me and i was going stage 1 id get the dsg done again. I'm thinking of going back to stage 1 tbh. It's even crossed my mind to get a custom map done from MRC.

It is alot of money though. Do revo not do deals every now and again for 10% off like APR do. Might be worth waiting for one of they deals.

Goodluck mate.

One thing i do wish i did was go to mrc or unicorn for a custom map.

If your close to any of they 2 id be doing that before apr or revo. Not that revo n apr aren't anygood i just prefer custom maps. 12 hour round trip put me off though haha.
