          See we told you it was worth the wait didn't we.

          Happy days enjoy.

          ref the sport button i find it does not make that much difference other than wanting to go more when lightly touching the throttle peddle.

          Bring on the miltek and a Map.

                  £30 for the air filter.
                  £550 for the map
                  £850 for the cooler (£1069 fitted)
                  plus the cost of the exhaust. i have a CS pre cat @ £180, Miltek sports cat @ £500 and the VXR miltek @ £450

                  Call CS or link from my signature you might even get a bit off if your a member of VXSCC.

                  i'm liking the idea of the CS3 but i might wait and see if the cooler comes down in price.

                          There's lots of different opinions about running cars in these days! I'm of the opinion to go easy but give it something every now and then just so it's not too tight!!

                          Various debates in the forums across the ball I guess!
