Yeah I took it out for a good drive last night around familiar roads and you notice the extra power definitely even just pottering it feels like it has more behind it. It just feels more urgent and peak torque in say 4th is amusing. I had a guy in York do it and he was very good and thorough.

I've had a DTUK box on my 184 FR before with a 'claimed' increase to 245. I'm sure it wasn't actually 245, but there was a big difference.

More power throughout the entire rev range, much easier to spin the wheels in 1st, and it held power past 5000rpm - it usually starts to drop off a little after 4000.

The guy that did mine will travel tbf. Alternatively he used a Black Codes remap with the Performance map (although I didn’t want to go full power as worried about reliability etc) If you contact Black Codes they will distribute your enquiry to your nearest franchisee

Does any have any idea what this may be ?
Difficult to see from the photo. If it wipes off with tar remover it's likely to be tree sap. If it doesn't then it could be microblisters in the paint. How old is the car? Has it been resprayed/repaired?

The car is 18 months ....
Nope hasn't been repaired resprayed ...
Never the less I will try the tar remover ..even thought tried claybar didn't do much

I am not a paint expert but they do not feel /look like microblisters as you can't really feel them by hand ..and this is the weird think

Left work this evening to find I had a flat rear tyre.

So grateful I bought a genuine spare off ebay and had a jack and tools in the car.

Will take it to the garage tomorrow. Does it look repairable?

Took it into the bodyshop to get the front bumper repaired/resprayed. :( Last Thursday in the piddling rain someone reversed into it in the company car park after their reversing sensors failed. At least they admitted fault so I ought to get my excess back.

Is it normal that my Leon’s a bit jerky when left in second gear in traffic without applying much acceleration?

my previous car was an Ibiza and I could leave it in second from one end of the traffic to the finish no problem and do clutch control without been jerky, but trying crawl in second in my Leon and attempting clutch control in traffic when it slows then ends up a bit jerky, you’re talking 5-10 mph until before I actually apply gas to move quicker.
If it’s a 2018ish 1.5 then unfortunately yes mines the same...search for ‘kangaroo’ if you’re not already aware of the issue.

I’m getting used to it and avoid it 80% of the time now...it’s no biggie as far as I’m concerned.
