+1 for getting the HTC One M8. I was away for a few days and just caught up with the latest. Even before I could suggest the M8, you had already ordered it. You will be getting Android Lollipop upgrade as well and the phone should last you a while. It's a very good phone and if I didn't have my M7, I would have gotten one. Let me know what you think of it.

The mist jets are really useful and worth the money. If you have a spray can which is the colour of your car, you could colour code it for that extra bit of stealth. 30-60 min job which makes the bonnet more streamlined.

Avon ZV5 on mine as well and the difference in noise levels is noticable. Best bit that is that I got a bit of a discount from my local Ford dealer. Well worth it.

Great to hear about the back Lenny. Maybe consider swimming as well as that would help. 

 

On holidays here in Wales and had to check on your progress. FYI, the roads around Snowdonia in Wales are really fun to drive. Definitely recommended  :)

I'm liking the subwoofer encloser. I've got a single 10" sub, but it takes up room in the boot. Did you buy the one from eBay after all?

 

I must say, the enclosure if really well made and you can get it from a few sellers on Ebay. I got lucky by ordering from Radio World and it was delivered no problem at all to Ireland for a reasonable postage price. Lenny on the other hand had big difficulties with the same seller and in the end it was not a pleasant experience. He might tell you more himself. 

 

Bass Junkies seller has one for £20 more than Radio World. If you want to look at their feedback scores for each and then decide

With regards to space, that was my main reason for getting the custom sub enclosure. It takes very little space and I have ample room in the boot now for a pram and a whole bunch of other things for the little one. Plus, it's solidly made, the carpet is nice and easy to clean. Depending on the subwoofer you have, check the specs that they need i.e volume for the sub to see if it matches. My JL Audio 10W0V3 specs matches the enclosure very well and the sound quality is very good. Don't expect very loud volumes from it as it isn't ported. If you want to hear quality bass and enjoy the subtleties in the music, then this is highly recommended  :)

Yeah, better working it out yourself......did you have yours on the rolling road?

 

I got an app called Mileage on Android that does the job very well with lots of stats such as money spent per month, year etc. Do check it out.

Have not got mine on a rolling road next and I was seriously thinking about that. Then, I thought that others who are based in Ireland might be interested to make a day out of it and if we could get a few cars on the rolling road and being part of the owners club, we might get a discount.

 

Lenny, would you be interested in a rolling road for your car?

Good to hear. After you got yours, I was even more tempted to get mine remapped seeing the torque curve and power curve.

 

My mpg is saying 56-57mpg on the car display. I will need to confirm at the next fillup of the actual average as I don't trust the car readouts but rather my own calculations when I brim the tank. If I get anything between 50-55mpg, the fuel savings will pay off the remap.

Awesome build thread and read through it all. Congratulations on the engagement. Love how the centre console turned out with the new headunit. 

 

Are you thinking of upgrading the sound system in the future? 

 

How comfortable is the car on the lowered springs?

Kieran, you seriously thinking of getting the 2.0 ST engine in it? Now that would be sweet! Leave it outside stock, total sleeper look  :)

Have you had the dpf removed? Custom remaps are a lot better than a tunning box, bet your well happy. :)


Dpf removed, dpf delete and car remapped.

Very happy with the results so far. Much smoother than with the tuning box. No power surges/spikes and I can rev the car past 3k rpm without it sounding like a bag of nails.

I might sell the tuning box on the forum if anyone is interested. Nothing wrong with it if anyone wants a removable option.

How's your car keeping up with the new remap?

Sway bar will increase that because it will push down harder on your springs mate,
Need lower harder springs and low profile tyres with reinforced side wall to prevent the flexing this way the hole thing stays rigid,
Then your sway bar comes in to play to increase pressure on the hard springs to help it turn in because its more rigid,


Thanks for the info Lenny. The future plans still include getting the Bilstein b12 pro kit and I thought that in the meantime, I could just get the sway bars fitted as they ate not too expensive even with fitting included.
I plan to do the mods one bit at a time like I did with the audio install.
If you find anywhere I could get the bars for cheaper, please let me know. So far, with shipping they come to around €240-250. Not including fitting.

This is all kinds of awesome! Your attention to detail is impressive,re JL audio logo being level. On mine, I looked at it, moved it a bit and it kinda looked level and drilled the holes lol. In the summer, I might decide to tidy up the installation and the mess of wires.

A must have upgrade for myself living in Ireland as the original washers a not very useful. Didn't mind paying the Ford dealer the money they asking as it makes driving so much easier.
