In Topic: Egr Blank Fitted 1.8 Tdci 08 Plate

11 February 2013 - 09:49 PM

As Sal has said - better blanked/ a TDDI is liable to have an EGR

If anything the EGR on a TDDI seems to produce even more "goop" than a TDCI,

A TDDI is likely to have a euro3 ECU so can be blanked with no problems


Brilliant cheers chaps!

I've bought a blanking plate off Egay but it's only made of aluminium so i'll copy the design and knock one up at work made from Stainless Steel...simple.

Hopefully it'll be as easy to get to and sort out.

At the end of the day it cannot hurt to do the extras BUT i'd only have the basic service and i wouldn't ever go to a Fraud's dealership unless it relies on the warranty you have with them.

I've never had a service for any of my cars over £200.

In Topic: Car Mods - What Floats Your Boat?

11 February 2013 - 06:26 PM

For those who like to modify their car and add their own touch… what mods would you apply to your car first? Wheels, spoilers or performance mods, in which order would you modify your ride? What Top 5 Mods you would do first?


Top 5 in order :-

1. Tyres
2. Exhaust System (Manifold/CAT/Back Box)
3. Upgrade Brakes (Bigger/Better)
4. Suspension (Coilovers/Strut Braces/Polybushes)
5. Lights (HiD)

These mods would only be done on a car i'd intend to use on a track for track days.

I'm not one for flashy alloys or body kits or bright interior lighst everywhere. I like to keep it as standard as possible and replace with standard or an upgrade on standard as and where possible.

If you want a faster better car then buy one! :)

Fast & The Furious Films, Old 70's/80's Police car chase films, Bullit, Senna, Rush, Driven, Ronin, Driver, Le Mans, Days of Thunder, The French Connection, Taxi are all good in my book.


I remember an old film that was made by a French Filmographer who drove round the streets of Paris in an old Citreon and then recorded a Ferrari engine and then mixed it to the film...was !Removed! brilliant!
