    Cheers. I loved the rs6 wheels also, still have them but there still needing fixed from being buckled slightly. Good scottish roads for you. It was DMD detailing in houston next to paisley.

    No i've not took any measurements etc. From the little research i did do. Airtec were getting good reveiws from what i read. I don't track the car so i went for the airtec and bonus was its a little cheaper. I've heard wagner is the one to beat. Never had a problem with the airtec though and it fits well. Do you mean ecotune recommendation? Nope haha. They like to try sell things though give them that[emoji23] Cheers pal.

    Pressure Washer, Which Is Best? K2 or K4

    I have the k2 compact. Does the job and is better than i expected, not had any problems with it. I have been using my mates k4 though recently, no doubt its the better machine. But i paid £64 for the k2 and cheapest ive seen the k4 is £160. If moneys no option k4 allday.
  9. Hi. As above. Does anyone know if these will fit? Cheers.

    APR DSG Remap - Your opinion?

    I was apr stage 1. I did get the dsg mapped also, just because its safer. But the mapper and from what i read elsehwere you don't need to get the dsg box done on stage 1 and is safe enough. I found drivability on stage 1 was great and i loved. Now stage 2 though i'm not so keen on the dsg.

    Cheer mate.i love the wheels also but sadly they're coming off next week. I keep seeing the wheels in little colour which i think does look nicer, as the the diamond cut and grey tie in better imo.

    Yes the exhaust is loud but its more the drone on the motorway, but also the dsg isn't great in normal mode. Constantly sits in 4th at 30mph. But i now just drive it in manual or in eco in individual mode as then the revs don't drop off when you lift off, so i'm getting use to it now.

    Upto date now[emoji23] These have arrived, some mtec c hook discs. Bought some bremo 4 pots aswell from another forum member. These get fitted along with oz superturismos on the 22nd of may. Since i went stage 2 aswell, i can't live with the drone so i'm booked in at c+c custom exhausts next week to get a silenced mid section fitted. Also had the autowatch ghost immobiliser fitted a couple month ago aswell for peice of mind.

    2/5/18 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.
