Have requested that this morning as I am over the 30 post count now.
Would be nice to have those things working!

Dropped off this morning for it's mapping with Zen Sport in Braintree, I've used them a few times in the past and always had great results. I'm not one to chase numbers I just want gains across the board and make things more drivable, they have a great history with VW's specifically the Transporter and Caddy so should be interesting to see what they can do with it.

Collected the Maxi from the mappers, all round health check was good, have been advised to not use Supermarket fuel though and run BP or Shell with the first couple of tanks being the higher quality stuff.

They said the engine is a little clogged up but running some fuel additives and cleaners it'll help to get rid of most of it out the back, I wasn't overly surprised as I am fairly sure the service history of it wasn't brilliant, which I why I've been getting all those bits done and sorted prior to having anything else modded.

Figures though are 140bhp and 320Nm, noticeably better and has much more go about it where before it did seem to lack in any useable power delivery.

Now to make the brakes work better than a soggy RichTea biscuit after a good dunking!

Couple small jobs ticked off whilst waiting for 8 hole rear shackle plates to raise the rear up more.

Carpeted rear boot panel.

New tailgate handle.

Installed rear camera and ran cables through to rear ready to run to front and connect.
