Picked it up from hightstonemotors.

WIND THE COILS DOWN TO THE STANCE I WOULD LIKE.
SIDE RUNNER COVER.
CADDY LIFE MIRRORS
CARPET REAR AND SOUNDPROOF!

Thanks dude ! Photos on a phone do it no justice will have to take the DSLR out tomorrow to get some better pictures!

Surprised how nippy it’s after being mapped to 150bhp

I’m am a little bit biased though as I’ve come from a B5 s4 with 330bhp

Agree, great looking van and excellent colour choice. Looks a lot darker than mine though.

Strange, you’ll have to check if the paint code is LH8Z. Yeah the black cabin makes a big difference mate, I put it off for ages but wish I hadn’t now.

You can map it to around 190bhp with 400tq. If you want.

Hi Tim, I got mine from Highstone too

Just read your post regarding it being nippy with the 150bhp remap
I thought I’d post and let you know that mine was also advertised as that but I noticed a few flat spots and also doubted the figure, so I took it to a local guy I use and had it remapped by him, it’s now running 178bhp perfectly and is a lot better on fuel

Fair one dude ! That’s good to know mine seems okay but I am not used to driving a diesel yet I’ll have to let you know how I get on! Only had boosted petrol cars

That explains why it looks darker. Stunning, looking forward to some more photos mate.
