That thing is loooooow!!
Mind and get it remapped
Funny you should say that... I've already sussed out a remap. Not giving too much away at the moment, but the "before" power is awesome - I can only imagine with a remap that's it'll be unbelieveable!
Picked the car up today... car was badly prepped (they were prepping it when I put my deposit down, and it's like they did nothing else once they saw my money
However, the car is low & hard, and will be excellent on the track (Nurburgring twice/year).
Stereo is rubbish, so will be going in the bin soon
Did a bit of research today re. the previous owner - managed to get hold of a phone number, so rang him tonight. Top guy, and was really pleased that "his" car had gone to someone who gave a s*** about it! He bought it new in June 2001, a special order & got the spec he wanted...
2.4 JTD Veloce Sportwagon (not a Lusso, as I thought it was)
Amazon Green Metallic
Nivomat Suspension (not sure if it's still in there)
Lots of service history & repair bills - cambelt done at 70k miles, so good to go for a while.
I picked it up this morning, and had a "spirited" drive back to the office with it... WOW it moves!!! & it handles too. And stops. All the things my old Passat didn't do. But it has a few thumps & groans too - my Passat didn't do that!!!
This is a car with character - the Passat had very little of that - so I'm looking forward to hopefully a long & happy relationship with it
