The car is standard other than the CSS exhaust. It's not had it's remap yet.

Ah right, not really heard mine do this but then I've got a full Akra system with a map.

Such a PITA going back and forth to the dealers  :sad:

You weren’t in Sheffield yesterday were you?! Saw a black 3dr flash past that sounded louder than a normal Mk7 GTI  :smiley:

Not me, although I am having difficulty remembering where I was yesterday.

It was up early and a drive over the Pennines to Stockport this morning for an appointment with Rick at Unicorn.

A touch over 300bhp with a decent amount of torque to go with it. Not had chance to test it properly but you can certainly notice the difference.

Nice figures..... more likely to be 400bhp if you still have the factory Bridgestone's on with all the spinning they do!! :grin:

I do keep thinking about having it done, what was the cost if you don't mind me asking? and is that with just a remap or have you got other mods too?

Started the process of returning my car to stock. Today, cf mirror caps, R rear lights, CS red centre caps, Audi 12v socket cover and left foot rest all replaced with the original parts. It's a bit sad really. Tomorrow, Audi short shifter, Audi shift cables metal bracket with 42 Draft Designs metal bushes and VW Racingline turbo elbow and inlet pipe to go.

If anyone is interested in the spare parts, I'd rather they go to someone on here who is going to use and enjoy them, PM me with an offer. I'm not going to be greedy, I've had my fun, but be reasonable! I will probably keep the Racingline parts for now along with the CS centre caps and 12v cover.
2019 Oryx White 5dr TCR.

Was - 2015 Tornado Red 3dr GTI PP, manual, Santiagos, Audi short shifter.
