  1. It can probably be turned off with FORScan. It can definitely be disabled on the Mk4. The settings are in the ACM (audio control module).
  2. Standard wheels & springs Revo RF019s & Eibach springs My favourite angle 😎
  3. Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs fitted today, -25mm at the back and -20mm at the front. Very happy 😁
  4. They’re really very good. Plenty initial bite and great feel, hardly any extra noise from the grooves and I haven’t managed to get them to fade yet.
  5. Just last week I fitted a set of Revo RF019 wheels in matte anthracite with Michelin PS4S tyres. Love the way these wheels look. Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs coming soon…
  6. Then came the mountune m365 remap along with the Downpipe/Sports Cat and Sport GPF. Insanely quick in-gear acceleration and still no drone at cruising speeds. Overrun pops & bangs even more pronounced 😎 It was however an absolute nightmare to fit. My local Ford workshop did not do a good job. The nuts/studs at the turbo did not want to be undone. It was returned to me with an exhaust leak at the turbo. It turned out two of the three nuts were not fully tight. I decided to take it to a mate who has his own garage and finally got it fitted properly. One stud had to have it’s thread chased and the other two replaced with bolts after the nuts locked up and pulled the studs out with them. I fitted a new gasket too, just to be on the safe side.
  7. Next it was time to replace the brakes. The rear discs were badly corroded and the pads were getting low. The fronts weren’t too bad but I decide to replace the whole lot with mountune/EBC grooved discs and pads.
  8. Not a mod but a good clean and polish 🙂
  9. The mountune billet short-shift arm was fitted next. It was very easy to install as there’s plenty room to work in once the airbox is removed. It’s another small mod that made a big difference. The change feels much better with a nice short throw between the gears.
  10. Then came the exhaust. The mountune GPF-back system with carbon fibre effect tips. After bedding in it gave a nice increase in sound with no drone at motorway cruising speeds. The pops & bangs in Sport/Track mod are more pronounced too 😎
  11. Next up was the mod that made the most difference, the mountune m330 remap. What a change in character. As standard it’s by no means slow but after the remap it pulls much more strongly in all gears with only the slightest increase in torque steer.
  12. The next couple of mods were simple ones, Ford Performance number plate surrounds and chrome exhaust tips (Audi Q7 3.0 from eBay).
  13. The first mod was a simple one, the ST carbon fibre effect gear knob. Not nearly as cold as the original metal/leather one in the winter, nicer looking too 🙂
