Re: Hey guys !!!!

hi mathew,

i've just joined 5 minutes ago myself, although i've been an alfa maniac since i was 7 years old. i take it your alfa is a jtd?

your comment about the pbox really interested me, i've just had mine remapped and am not impressed. how much is this pbox, i know the bosch ones are about 300. what fuel economy are you getting?
i've heard horror stories about pboxes causing engines to blow up?!

regards

Nur

Why are you unhappy with your remap? Not as good as you thought it would be or has the economy dropped?

Re: Hey guys !!!!

I think I paid £399 for the PBOX fitted. On the 2.4JTDM in my 159 I get 30-35MPG driving on the hard side of normal most of the time.

Re: Hey guys !!!!

Well I'm astonished with all the comments I have never been a forum person but hey you guys, thanks for the welcoming !!!!

Wrinx, I didnt mean anything personally and you really giving me a first warning ????? Crikey, boot camp is it !!!!!!

Ok so my choice of name wasnt the best oh well surely I cant get critiscised for that... thanks for the commenting Andy G

Mr happy man, thats a good question I'm not sure if I had read all the comments on here I would of bought from where i did (not commenting on any names due to the fact i get into trouble) probably wouldnt of done but no regrets so far.... Also with my intitial post I had lots of comments to say I wouldnt stick around and I commented on why they wouldnt, to be honest I'm not sure if I want too anymore with the amount of negative comments about everything and anything, makes me feel like some people on here are like Mr Meldrew.. moan moan... now im sure i'll get some abuse !!!!

Nur, well I'm really pleased with the product I bought but I paid more than 300 for it, did some research into tuning boxs and this looked some what ok, I was going to go for a re-map as that is what i had on my golf but ok I'll admit the guy at you know where sold it to me.
I'm impressed mpg wise I can get as low as 34mpg (thats is when having a very bad day at office) but can get it upto 47mpg driving sensibly (not very often). What do you get with your re-map ???? and what extra power is it supposed to be producing ???
P.s yes its a JTD.

Right then i need to get on with some work..

Thanks for the comments I will cheack again very soon so I can reply, positive ones please.. (or I feel like slitting my wrists!!)

Have a Happy Chrsitmas to everyone, if I dont manage to get back before hand...

Re: Hey guys !!!!

As a relative newbie I'd hope that we're all free to flex and bend and learn and be forgiven for a few petty indiscretions........I think I know, by now, that you're all up for that. And that includes accounting for the shoulder room that new people need to establish themselves (remember it was easier for the guys with 3000 posts to start from zero.....quite intimidating for newbies) (unless they is gibsh*t*s like moi)).

Finally - give the guy a break about the name......my eyebrows raised.....but for gods sake the current stuff isn't remotely relevant to the term he uses..............stop following the express hacks!


Love and peace to all with jam on top.

Re: Hey guys !!!!

Well, there were 6 Jack the Ripper attacks (5 murders, one survived), he then disappeared, and no one really knows who he was...

By some coincidence (I'm sure) Matt the Ripper posts 6 times and then disapears, and none of us really know who he was...

You have to admit, there's a certain symetry in it

Re: Hey guys !!!!

Well, thanks alot Gary !!!!!

Sorry been busy and to be honest been reading all alot of others posts and thought this one was dead in water....

So your saying I'm brown an smelly, not great coming from a 'GOLD' member... starting to think you guys are jokes....

People do work for a living and dont spend 24/7 on a bloody pc..

Not sure if I want to be a member of this community if you have to spend every min replying !!!!

Right, please talk among yourselves if I'm welcome please say so, if not I'll leave and find some other 'friendly' forum.....

Re: Hey guys !!!!

Hey Matt, some of us are friendly, we were all new to this forum once, and I respect anyone who speaks his mind (without being predjudice) and hope you stick around to keep the balance on these threads. Keep on truckin'.

That's odd, 'cos when I last looked at your profile it said you hadn't been on the board for 4 weeks

You mean that you've never heard of Jack the Ripper! He is probably the most famous serial killer in the world, and if you had of heard of him you would have know that he was never caught. This makes your choice of forum name rather unusual.

With regards to the rest of your comments, I'd refer you back to Wrinx's post, number 5.

In every step, I hear your sobbing
Dare I break the shade with one caress
Dare I trespass to lift the veil
To touch the lips so soft and frail

It may be that love comes once and once only, preceded by rehersal, followed by regret.

Know well that however right a man may be they always find the fallen one guilty.

All that is required for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing

Re: Hey guys !!!!

Matt we don't want to lose any members mate and that includes you.

As for this thread, it should of been left where it was and not raised up to have a pop at someone and comparing the similarities of another member of alfaowner to a serial killer. Not on in my opinion.
