    18"s VS 19"S

    If you increase the width of your tyre (all other factors bring the same) it increases the circumference of the tyre and can also affect the speedo reading (under read) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    big brake back plates ?

    Priced these plates up and they are not to bad, Do the RS plates just bolt on to R platform or do you need to modify ? Also it looks like you would have to take off the Caliper and disc to fit them . Would that be correct ? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Will they fit a over 363 mm disc? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. You are not comparing like for like UK figures are corrected WHP figures giving you the BHP at the crank ie with no transmission losses so UK figures will be a lot higher as a consequence also us fuel is graded in USA as AKI anti knock index which is the average of RON and MON ie AKI 91 =95 RON 93 AKI =98 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    APR hand held mapping

    Thanks ! Does it work with the 7 R ECU ok? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Anyone know if you can get an APR handheld device to switch maps on an existing APR mapped car. Just noticed APR have released an updated version of their stage 2 software and wouldn’t mind getting the upgrade. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wheel advice

    The 225x40x18 tyre would fit that wheel I have tyres that size on my TD 1.2 wheels of same size and offset. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. If the price is too good to be true then the part is likely fake sadly you usually get what you pay for. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
