    Well the cheapest quote I got for the standard car was £506 off comparethemarket.com so £173 more for declaring the remap. I rang Greenlight and sky insurance companies (I had read about both of them on here some where) when they asked any modifications just tell them. With the policy I have taken there is no extra costs for any other mods until I get a stage 2 map on, so exhaust, induction kit, coilovers and anything else that does affected the power a lot.
    And with Sky and Greenlight you get an extra discount for being a forum member.
    It's worth giving them a call next time your insurance needs renewing, I was surprised how cheap there quote.

    Got over 400 miles out of a tank of fuel before the fuel light came on. Not to shabby for a 370bhp engine lol. That's sitting at 75mph most of the way down to London with the odd blast to 90 to get past some traffic.

    Sky insurance told me that they did a 20% discount for forum members, Greenlight insurance just said they do a forum discount they never said what % it was but they were cheaper in the end.

    I bought the Eibach lowering kit (50mm/35mm) took 6 hours yesterday just to fit the fronts, so we gave up and went to the pub!

    The backs do look a lot easier though so that should be fine, can't actually believe how heavy the disk/calliper's are worth it though cos the front sits nicely in the arches now.

    Question, I've ordered the Triple R Splitter once that's fitted does it give enough clearance to get over speed bumps with ease?

    Cheers
    Tim.

    as far as im aware, the spliter has been designed to not be the lowest point of the vehicle...well, so they say.

    even when the car is lowered, there is still alot of clearance anyway.

    Unfortunately they are bad enough to need eyebrows on them but apart from that they are mint!....and probably the only ones in the UK that will pass an MOT!
