everyone makes mine looks,,, well eerrr !Removed! lol

Anybody with average jobs lmao

No ones job is !Removed!. No ones job is more special. The main thing is we do the best we can with what we've got. If we can take pride in what we do, then we are doing the right thing for by ourselves.

agreed, we can't all be in glamorous jobs.
Mine sounds exciting but in truth i spend a lot of the time alone on the road with two dogs asleep in the back and having to deal with crap weather and dodgy people doing dodgy things.
I'm around my dogs so much I've even started smelling musty like them :P

@Martyntdci, it is possible the only problem you will have is a bit more lag as the turbo is actually a tiny bit bigger

Don't know much about the remapping mate but the turbo will fit, that it's bigger would mean that it would take alot more exhaust fumes to get it spinning, so possibly a remap may sort that but as I said don't know too much about the remapping

I work for a division of DHL called Inside Track Automotive - we run marketing campaigns, events, and fleets for Ford, Peugeot, Volvo and Honda as well as some larger dealer and leasing groups. Those of you who attend Ford Fair will see our demo vehicles and event staff supplied... and any company car drivers may have had a demo from us ;)

Unfortunately I mainly deal with Peugeots but it does mean I get to hear about and see new stuff from the manufacturers we work with :D
