Not good enough stoney tut tut lol


Tssk...No pleasing some people.
I went for mods that were subtle and not lairy/boy racerish.
I didn't want my car to look like i'd sprayed it with contact adhesive and crashed it through the window of my local Halfords ;)

its a perforated vinyl that you wrap head light units etc with to give the effect of being tinted black when you look at it from a distance. Its perforated to still allow most of the light to shine through

i can vouch that it'll pass the mot no problems cause i used to have it on mine before i fitted me new black head light units

My Favourite modification to date is;
ECU Remap

But if the car had been 125bhp as standard, then id not have gotten a remap and id be saying the exhaust.

30bhp from the remap plus 5bhp I reckon from the performance duplex and induction filter.

The place I went to get the exhaust fitted offered ecu remaps,
So they connected to my ecu via the OBD to copy the ecu file,
They then emailed the file to some place in germany I think it was,
Germany then edit the file and email back to them,
They then load it on to the ecu via the OBD port,
Give me a passenger seat test drive.
And charged me 280euro

Says 120bhp 278nm Torque,

Forgot to mention ive painted the front calipers red, so I should add 25bhp to the iniital figure for that lol
If I was remapping again,
Id buy a bluefin and do it myself, this way the bluefin stores the original ecu map on it for easy stock setting return.
But fuel saving is now at 62km per Gallon.

I love the Mk6 some great mods available and a tidy motor to begin with and for tuning as theirs no dpf (crack of thunder)
What are you looking at changing to?

Well im torn between a mk1 Focus RS, a mk2 focus ST (similar price range) or whether to go all out and get the new focus ST2 on finance :/ decisions decisions lol. I definatly want something with alot more power though. Ive made aload of visual mods on my mk6 but its only a 1.3 LX so there isn't much point doing any perormance mods. Its been the first car ive ever done any mods to and IMO i think it looks pretty decent but theres just no ooomph when driving it lol
