    The B-road beaST. *** Irish Road Trip Done***

    The recaros look abit strange in the old RS too. I know what You mean about the previous shape interior,things have come on. Its a really nice place to be inside now with lots of detail. Led interior lights that can be directed to passenger/driver or both-very handy. Ambient lighting in door...

    The B-road beaST. *** Irish Road Trip Done***

    I know I was shocked! I came back with about €300 left as I expected to burn it all on petrol. Round town its 27mpg thats not bad either. It's ended up being a better choice than I was expecting with regards to cost. I actually really like the sound, its not"fake" its kinda nice to hear the...

    UPDATE TIME. Yeah, I like modifying too much to not do it, even when I have a car as fun as this :) Ive bought a Bluefin Device from Superchips. Its a handheld remapping device. It looks like an oversized sex toy/virgin TiVo remote. But it does the job :) Advantages of this are swapping...

    It's between the two camps of smooth and agressive on the looks front, not sure they got it right but its not offnesive to look at, the smaller details you notice inside and out are better. Thats kinda how it drives comapred to its rivals too. In the real world, it wont be any slower even...

    can i send car back for not doing mpg?

    It only activates charger when requested. But you should get better numbers, I'd get the dealer to look into it, could be dodgy MAF so Your cars dumping more petrol in or anything

    The B-road beaST. *** Irish Road Trip Done***

    With this car, its better than my cupra was modded power/handling/comfort wise. So modding as you say isnt really worth it. I might get a map on it and that be that. Not really one for changing exhausts or large mechanical parts of the car. Its defo a head turner, causes a lot more comments...
