Thanks and no doubt, or even just driving around. Filled it up yesterday and since the 15 of October I've racked up 3300 miles Shocked

Haha pretty sure it's not mapped normally with just a remap these make 135-140bhp and there's a few out there making 200 with cr170 turbos and s3 intercoolers.

Took it for a drive down the Moffat - Selkirk road yesterday and stopped off at a cafe for a stop came back out and it was dark.

Turned the headlights on and they were worse than normal, right hand light had went out then on the way to Galashiels the left went out.

Was certainly an experience driving those roads with just side and fog lights!

Now fitted some Bosch 477 gigalight plus 120s and they are a million times better than what was already in it. These are as bright on dipped beams than the originals were on high. In fact I used to be able to drive on high beams and never get flashed!

According to the supplying dealer this is the first time they've been changed so a month sort of 3 years.

What I did find interesting is previously I tried to turn on he Cornering lights and it flagged up with a bulb error as the wiring isn't there for them but the right hand light was out for a good hour and the left 15 mins and it didn't flag up any errors.

On the road between Galashiels and Peebles there was a long left hander the car got properly sideways unexpectedly Shocked managed to pull it back as I had experienced it twice on the trackday but the esp didn't kick in ether.

if you have any doubts get it looked into... or at least raise your concerns before the warranty lapses Smile

Not sure on how your ESP would work... but if a car is on ice for example.... it cant really do much if all 4 a sliding sideways.

I've felt the ToeRags ESP working.... kinda just pulls the car straight, but that was on power going through deep puddles

Will do. Couldn't really feel it when it kicked in before.

Fuse it fine didn't try to code it as it was on it from the factory.

Cars just turned over 39000 so that's 7500 in less than 3 months Surprised

Left hand tyres are at 2mm and rights are at 5 so new set of continental sport contact 5's for the front and going to stick the front drivers on the passenger rear so they are 5mm across the rear axle. Bloody hard to get a hold of thankfully Tadstar (who had the fievo at knockhill) in Cumbernauld are sorting them out.

Car has also been accepted to take part in the Glasgow to Monte Carlo rally next Wednesday only doing part route as can't afford the full 1500 entry fee. But still something I've always wanted to be part of.
