    Story goes, picked her up tuesday just gone . . .

    55 Plate
    42,000 miles
    FSH
    Tested till November

    Blah Blah Blah . . . Bought it from SG Petch in Darlington for a price i couldnt refuse!

    Im a mechanic so i had a look around it on Wednesday after work and found a couple of goodies on it . . .

    Forge 007p DV
    Miltek Cat back
    And some sort of short shift . . .

    Now with these mods, i suspect it will have been mapped aswell, but a rolling road day in the near future will confirm whether or not this is true :)

    Today she is going back to SG Petch because i also found 3 tyres out of shape, and im not paying for them haha :censored:

    Anyway, after i have been there i am going to shoot up to work to start cleaning her up properly, of course a camera will be taken and pictures uploaded later . . .

    Keep your eyes peeled :D

    could you not get it put on a computer to tell you if it is mapped or not? :)

    If your a mechanic are you not more worried why the tyres are out of shape rather than the fact that they are?
    Could be fecked shocks or non XL tyres.
    With VAG com you could log the MAF readings and post these up, we'll be able to tell you from this whether its mapped or not and save you £40 from the RR.
    We can also tell you the BHP from these figures too but not torque.

    Looking forward to your mechanical input in the MK1 Leon section

    I would have to find a VAG com first though, and im new to this scene so dont know anyone with one!

    Ive checked the shockers and all the rest of it, its spot on apart from the tyres, and i reckon its just because they are cheap. They are only avons, but i cant afford to be putting F1s on and SG Petch wont be £110 a tyre, unfortunately :(

    Just took some pictures of her, will post them up now :)

    Ive only drove home and its dirty again ! :(

    Little bit of Forge . . .

    Just fitted some L.e.d number plate lights aswell, but didnt bother with a picture because it is light anyway ....

    Once ive had it on the rolling road and seen what its actually running im probably going to get an induction kit and T.I.P before i start doing anything, even revving it early at stand still, you can see the flex in the o/s/f boost pipe, which isnt cool, so either some samco or forge hoses will replace them as time goes by . . . :)
