Here's your medal



 :grin:

Will have to get some pics up at the weekend when I get some day light time (our work car park is sh!te for pics), definitely loving the engine roar and the pull on it  :cool:

The heated leather/suede seats were a welcome treat this morning when the car was reading the outside temp as -1C  :shocked:

Got a few niggles to sort out, but nothing major :smiley:

But for the purest engine experience, displacement has no replacement. All other methods are simply attempts to artificially recreate the benefits of displacement.

Defo a welcome warmth in the mornings :grin:

Need to find where the ODBII port is and plug in my ODBII Bluetooth dongle and do some Torque recordings for the hell of it  :grin:

It's down by the pedals, like on the A4.

So in the same awkward position as the Galaxy  :sad:

Not bad MPG from a large engined heavy car, with two stops on the way home, I did see 31.8MPG Average until I had to make my first stop, went up to 31.6MPG until the second stop just before home and then total average of this, which I'm happy with :smiley:

Keep an eye out for the fan shaft they tend to rust badly it did on mine (V6 triptronic TDI Passat)
Plus everytime you wash the car wipe down the door seals as they loose their effectiveness after time and suffer from water ingress like mine did.
I loved mine to bits if you bought this off Martz I bet he will miss it like I did mine?
