Upgrades booked for 1st April.
« on: March 05, 2009, 01:24:45 pm »
Well im booked in at G-Tech!

Driving down there on the night of 31st March after I finish work, they get the car at 9am, fin by 4pm and then drive back to Holland ready for my road rally on the 3-4-5 April!

Gone for the INOX back box (decided against the full systemfor now), 165bhp chip with engine guarantee and upgraded wastgate (childish fun!)

All in price is 1550 EUR including tax and fitting and the guarantee.

Cant wait!

G-tech 'S' chip.

G-tech full exhaust sytem.

172bhp & 285Nm @4850rpm.

Now sold - doh!

    Make sure you get a proper before and after video of the exhuast sound/look. Would be interesting to find out once you've had it done, what the difference is if you went out in an EsseEsse (I know you can't fit it due to 'crazy Dutch laws').

    Crazy dutch laws!?  ::)
    Anyway OT:
    I'm also very much interested in how the end result will be, this might also give me a chance to ride in the 160bhp backpack and stay in budget. :)
    For me it's all about the money and 1550 beats 3750 euro's big time! :)

    SDM - I have my 500 on special tax free 'BN' plates which means I am not able to modify the ownership details of the car and the SS kit officially changes the spec of the car on the ownership documents (its all crazy tax law implemented by the RDW).

    I have driven the SS at the dealer in Den Bosch and it was mucho fun, so it will indeed be interesting to compare.  I have started off with only the backbox but may well upgrade to the CAT-free full system at some point.

    Going to be an interesting drive down there - 560km, they are just north of the Alps in a place called Stetten (if you use Google maps)

    Well I have had to put a mini hiatus on the upgrades.  I have to move house on the 1st April now!  Money and time has to be diverted to other stuff so the plans for the 500 are on hold.

    Ill likely head down to G-tech at the start of May when the bank account has recovered!
