That's cool regarding the remap. The price quoted is very decent and like you said, with the mileage, it would pay for itself by saving on fuel.
Also, do consider a tuning box as well as the new ones do a very good job. I know a lot of people wouldn't agree with me on this, but I have had one for the last few months and it has paid for itself by saving on my fuel bills. Granted it took a lot of tweaking of the settings to get what I wanted from it but there is now the option of either going for an eco or max mode with the twist of two buttons on the box. Another upside is the amount of low end torque that is very usable on a day to day basis rather than just having most of the torque at the top end of the rev range. Major downside was that it was not as easy as I thought to fit it as the engine bay is quite cramped for that connection,
@Lenny: Will keep an eye out and if I see any new ones will PM you. Did you consider trying to import a fresh one from Japan? Or better, find a nice used model from the UK and bring it over. I reckon there will be a good few more over there than here.
@Vicki: Let Lenny enjoy life a little. He has served his biological purpose already Let him have his toy...ahem project car. The way I see it is, he is a wealth of knowledge already and will be helping out others with his future guides for the next car. That kind of karma goes a long way and it's always good to have some good karma in this lifetime. Plus, it could be worse and he could have chosen to get a golf
I reckon that it would be a drastic change having the windows tinted. Mine came in with factory tints in the rear and rear window. My car being black, they look even darker than they actually are. Plus, they are useful in hot days and give a nice touch. Getting them tinted I reckon shouldn't cost silly money.
Lenny got his done aftermarket and would be able to give you a guide price roughly.
Welcome to the forum and love the colour of your car. My suggestion for the next mod will be to get the rear windows tinted as I think it would look ace with the car colour. Also, a nice rear diffuser would set it off
