TUT The new guy

That would be me. Down in sunny Berkshire, chewing up the extremely neglected road surfaces in the maidenhead area. But enough about me, here are the details of my pride and joy.

S reg ('98) 156 2.5 V6 in metallic silver,
lowered by 30mm on eibach springs,
supersprint cat back exhaust,
GTA lookalike bodykit,
17 inch telephone dial wheels,
pioneer sat nav and for those in the know a 12 inch JL sub accompannied by amplified Morel component speaker front and rear.
as well as the odd cosmetic mod

see you round alfisti

Re: The new guy

Welcome to AO! Sounds like some machine you have there! Have you got any sound clips of the Supersprint on the V6? Must sound a treat, & any pics of course!
BTW what's "alterpowered" ?

Thumbs Up Re: The new guy

sorry bob. The name is mine now!

Alterpower is a little gizmo that removes the alternator when you accelorate hard giving you an extra 6 (ish) bhp. It doesn't remove if your battery power is low though and it makes you lights dim a fair bit. But it does a nice job until the superchip kicks in 4000 revs.

unfortunately i don't have any picks yet which a crime as i have a photography degree! once it warms a bit though and i don't collect a sheet of grime everytime i move the car 5 feet I'll get some nice pics done. And a little sound bite if possible!

Re: The new guy

Welcome to AO, alfalfa (can I call you Alf? )

Sounds like an intriguing car you have there - lots of pics would be greatly appreciated (I'm sure we have recently made it a requirement for new registrations..... )
