Replaced 2 window regulators in the last week. Checked for wet carpets thismorning and look dry. No sill lakes either :)

Mine are knackered and need a refurb. One is losing 4psi a day out of the (new) valve
Can confirm it makes a difference. I used to have to top up 20psi every week, but with a refurb and a set of new tyres I've been able to leave it for weeks without having to touch them.

Doing some remote tuning on my PD150, mapper sends me a file, I road test/log it. Send results and we do it allover again. On file #6 so far and still going.

Original file on it (old owner had it put on) was requesting well over the max boost for the stock GT1749 and was smokey as hell, I would say last nights file was as fast as the original file but smokeless.

Took the car out today. No issues until after I parked up and went for a walk. When I got back to it, I didn't have any boost. Will take it out again in the next day or so - hopefully it's just being temperamental. No issues at all under boost beforehand though, which is weird.

That’s what mine does, sometimes it’s the SAI delete flagging and going limp mode, but I still get boost leak limp modes all the time. I’m at the point where I think the standard map just isn’t coping with the mods.

Fingers crossed it's just a hiccup that'll sort itself out. The car's stock, so there's nothing that comes to mind as to what it could be, but it has been sat for about a fortnight. If I have the same problem when I take it out tomorrow, I'll get under the bonnet and have a look. Want to drive to my parents' for the first time in months in the next few weeks, so hoping it's not going to be something I'll need to spend too much time working on. That said, there have been a few things this year that had me panicking, but they were sorted just from turning the engine off and restarting it.

Took it down the road today. When I gave it a fist full of beans, it did give a bit of a lurch, but after that, it worked absolutely fine. Decided to take it for a bit of a hoon down a local A-road once it had warmed up, and on the slip road I really gave it some so I could get in front of a lorry, and no issues and no hesitation. I should just accept that there doesn't seem to be a problem, but there's that other part of me that's wondering why it did it and what exactly caused it.

Got no fog lights on. So went to the doctor and find out the plugs have shrinked with so much heat and stop making contact. Hacksaw was the ultimate tool to shorten the inner connection. Now I have fogs! MOP on the way.
