Mangoletsi - Hestitation mod
Just wanted to post my experience of Mangoletsi and the result of the modification on my Spider 2.2 LE.
I booked my car in for the 15th of May (the weekend just gone) for the modification. When I dropped off the car late Friday I saw John in the workshop area of the service department (have spoken to him a few times before on the phone) and he was yet again very helpful. At the time he was just servicing a Brera for a customer, but this was no normal Brera as the customer had spent some serious money on the car with Nitro’s in the boot of the car. This was a diesel Brera and had a nice 320 BHP. Also there was a finger print recognition to start the car (only the owner and John could start the car), how crazy is that. The customer had also spend allot of money on an ICE Pioneer system.
Anyway getting back to the job in hand, John explained what they were going to do and it would be ready Saturday morning. Saturday morning came and I went to pick up the car. I spoke to Mark when I arrived and he talked me through what had been done and what I should expect e.g. no hesitation, potential greater fuel eco and a nice change in of exhaust note.
Well what can I say apart from it was worth every penny, the car is smooth from pull away and seem to be slightly faster. Have not notice much difference yet in consumption. But as for the delightful jingle from the exhaust......I had the largest grin across my face in Knutsford!! Now I know what you’re thinking rudeboy with his cherry bomb exhaust?? But no it is subtle and fits the characteristics of the car perfectly.
So in a nut shell if you are thinking of having this done I highly recommend it, and I'm very very happy for you to come and have a look at mine if you are curious or still unsure.
Also just a thanks to Mangoletsi and John in the workshop for great service they carried out.
