You went for Eibachs yeh? What sort of price did you get them for? Have been looking on ebay and they all seem to be going for around £150 ish. Were they the sportlines? And a big job to fit or did you take it to a garage?

Sorry for all the questions mate ;)

£150 is a good price, yes the sportlines.
Daughter boy friend did them, he's a mechanic ;)

If you can wield a spanner there are guides around on doing them iirc, i know there is for coilovers.

Re: MY01 Leon Cupra now with CCFL angel eyes :D

Dimsport, same people jabba use.
Local dealer came on a local site i used and offered a further 10% of their price.
Going for the progressive.
Going to a rolling road day on the 8th May so we will see the difference.

All done, what a bloody difference in the very busy short journey home.
They think the ECU was mapped before then a standard put back, some of the lines were wrong they said on the map.
Shall be going out tonight, when it is quieter and see what it is like then ;)

I am SO happy with the way it goes now, lost traction on acceleration, in the dry!
Dog bone mount next :D

Here are the findings from tonight, will get a proper graph on the 8th May

I't by no means a rolling road and tbh i'm not relying on them until it's been on the rollers.
It's the way it bloody pulls now. it is what they should have done standard.

Is that 217bhp and 182 torque mate?

Thats very good bhp figure but torque seems a bit low?
Just seen some graphs on-line and that the company uses the same DIMSPORT maps and they are taking the cars to around 130 mph on the rollers, i was no where near that (obviously) when i did my results above.
Roll on Saturday.

Not sure if it was a spike or not mate though tbh.
I do have to replace the pancake pipe for the one i got ageeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees ago this week as it's loosing a bit of boost, so might not give me the torque, also got a standard valve on its way to rule out that also.
 
GAP Insurance - cover the difference for peace of mind
