That's one nice motor mate

Would be nice if you could list some of the changes you've made over stock, so can see what the differences / changes are ?

You've made a good few changes there, looks very tidy. Is it lowered? Like the caliper colour, stands out much better than the blue.

That is stunning. Would love one of these to replace my Golf R in a couple of years. Where did you get all the carbon parts?

The carbon parts were from BMW, fitted at the dealership prior to delivery.

Whoes map did you go for? Driving impressions? The decat must make it bloody loud! Are the coil overs worth it for a daily driver?

Sorry for all the questions!

No need to apologise Phil surprisingly the ride is no worse than the stock setup, they are Blistine, I think I've pronounced it correctly, somebody correct me on that please if needed. GAD tuning took care of my remap to great effect, much more responsive and very torquey at the lower end of the rev range. The decat did make it much louder on the cold start but I've asked GAD to remove that feature so now it's much quieter but the pops and bangs on the overruns sound awesome. Well worth it in my books as all this has made the driving experience much better than the stock setup.
