  1. Short motorway journeys + cold engine = ?!??!

    I am picking up an 08 plate FR TDi next week and would like to hear what people think about motorway driving whilst the engine is cold. My commute to work is a very short hop to the motorway, a 5 minute blast down it, and a very short hop the other side to the car park. My current Golf barely...

    Cold Air Intake using standard air box??

    Just wondering if it's worth blocking off the engine bay side of the standard air intake as it gets unbelievably hot in there! Has anyone done this and is there a downside, it might make it a bit like a (very) budget Dbilas!!
  3. How cold is your aircon?

    I had my aircon regassed by Kwik Fit only 2 weeks ago but on Low it just doesn't feel icy cold. I'm wondering is this normal or something faulty? Most of my journeys are 5-10 minutes but even after this length of time its not icy.

    Bored!!! Design a cold intake for the 1.4 chill?

    Would there *really* be any point to doing this? I'm off work all week because of an op on Monday. I'm supposed to be resting, but I can't just sit on my butt all day. So thought I could design a cold air intake, but what would this do to a car with such small BHP anyway? Comments? I really am...

    Hi, I've got a Ibiza 1.9TDi 130. I have very minimal knowledge about cars and am looking to do little upgrades to my car. First thing I was looking at was to either get the green cotton filter or an induction kit. I've done some research and seem to understand how to fit the induction kit...
