    I run B14, great for a daily but if you want to track I'd go B16. I have also run B8 shocks on other cars and they are really good too.

    Not too much to report at the moment!
     
    gave her a long overdue clean today to get rid of the winter grime! Good to see her clean again.
     
    I have a few bits waiting to be fitted still, some ECS carbon stuff and a few suspension bits ready for when lockdown eases up!

    Forgot to post the finished pictures of the car after 2 stage paint correction and 2 layers of IGL Quartz ceramic. Had the wheels fully ceramic coated too along with the glass.
     

     

     

     

     
    Just a couple of pictures they got of the car as part of the package. Won't post them all as the post will be to long.
     
    They did an amazing job, and the pictures don't do justice to the colour that comes through now. 
     
    Glad to see the rugby result too!

    BobbyT got a reaction from OOV in PCP question   
    It also depends on what the car is worth at the end. I've known people who hand the car back at the end but still owe a few K.

    i've never heard of any issues, but i erred on the side of caution by choosing medium torque to avoid overstressing the gearbox.
     
    overly cautious maybe....

    BobbyT reacted to PhilC22 in PCP question   
    Yep, that would have been it. You generally remain in negative equity with a PCP until the last few months of the agreement, simply due to how depreciation works with a new car. You can also voluntary terminate (VT) the PCP contract - if you want/need to bail out early - but that's a separate issue.

    Could it be the DSG map? Is it a reputable company? Might be worth dropping the car back to them to investigate. You don't want to do any irreversible damage as the box is very expensive.

    If the Haldex needs doing you might get the traction control light more. If the pump has gone then you are running as a front wheel drive only. I'm not sure it would cause a noise unless something has really gone wrong. 
     
    Might be worth getting the car on a trolley jack and seeing if you can hear/feel anything when rotating the wheels by hand.

    I have seen Stage 1 unicorn cars up as high as 370-380 BHP, I am going to get my stock R on a dyno some time soon and then again after the self tune. Be interesting to see just how good a self tune is!

    Dont have an option of Dsg tune here in Jersey, but it works brilliantly. 
     
    It can take fraction too long to self-change into 2nd gear at high revs, but I'm about due a Dsg service, which might help...

    Gave it a quick wash and coat of WetCoat this morning.  After de-salting it thoroughly a couple weeks ago, it was a much speedier affair today.  Still a bit chilly out 🥶 though so warmed up with a nice cup of tea and some ginger biscuits!  
     
    A little grubby

     


    Good old Bilt Hamber Auto Foam doing its thing.  


    Liking the new Carbon Collective buckets and storage bin!  


    A bit better now.
