I took mine off and replaced with a Cookie Monster
what a nice ass!!
Looks fanastic mate!
Lookin a bit better now
Another small purchase today had loads of cars and this has always been the first thing done
Nice mods! I like the black on grey, suits it. Ive also de-wipered the rear, looks alot cleaner.
There are a few free things to do to make them feel a little perkier. They have a plastic plate over the intake hole, if you remove the left hand side grill you can see it but ideally the bumper needs to be removed to get rid of it. Likewise the plastic intake that runs across the front of the engine has tiny holes in, I found covering these up increased the induction noise to a nice degree and no hot air comes in. Little things but they are free.
Any other plans?
Lots of little things to do most important is a remap but saving for this and family holidays is hard work.... just got some poly bushes today so I’m going to fit them when I get chance
So today I fitted poly torque arm bushes because the standard one was shot. Like the way it feels please tell me the vibration settles down
They do bud. I fitted the Powerflex torque arm bush first then did the gearbox and bottom rear bush, vibrations were basically the same but it feels much better. The vibrations do settle and you mainly just feel them at idle. The main engine mount bush (under torque arm) is ment to be the worst for vibrations so I have left mine standard.
Good to hear, was thinking of removing it and getting a new torque arm. I've not done a great deal of miles yet so time will tell. seems worst just as i'm pulling away idles not too bad. I have no plans of doing the others but you know how it is when you start tinkering
it will settle down..a few hundred miles and you wont feel a thing...
great news cheers fella !!
Until then enjoy your free vibration massage!
Haha fitted mine a month ago now, and still vibrating away nicely!
Can’t fault them though, mine certainly feels like it’s pulling much better (worth the compromise!) I couldn’t stand the slightest interior rattle, but now I’ve just accepted my fate haha
I think mine has started to settle a bit (or I could be just getting used to it) as you say it does feel “sharper “ hopefully it goes a bit more because any rattle messes with my ocd big style
I found you can track some of the rattles down though. Stuff in my glovebox was vibrating, just put some sticky back velcro in the glovebox bottom. The OBD2 port also rattles in the housing and where my indicator and windscreen wiper switch are worn these rattle a bit. Lastly, the front seatbelt mountings are known to rattle. All these things add up but in all honesty, its not that bad.
So today’s small job, cabin filter, old one was a bit grotty even though it doesn’t look that bad in the pic. I decided to change it as I had no history of the last time It was done
Got any skin left on your hands?!
Found mine real tricky
Nah ripped em to shreds wand swore like a trooper. French people must have really small hands
