Went down to Johns this morning to get the Avant mapped.

Had in my head what i was going to get out of it etc, But my word, ive never had a mapped N/A before, and its miles better than i expected, its awesome having no lag, you cant half tell its been done' so smooth and the torque is very impressive, also alot more roar than before too which has put a massive smile on my face. all in all John @ Big Fish Tuning has done it again.

Also another suprise which he had, he gave me some business cards he had made up, and on the back is a picture of my Leon' I appreciate that so much and is so nice of the fella as it acknowledges the work i put into that car, massive thanks John, you a star

It's a nice looking car , can't help thinking that the satin black make-over is not a good idea though. Each to their own I suppose , as long as you like it that's the main thing

I've just read your Seat Leon thread . After reading here that you ended up breaking it for spares , I was expecting to find a post about an accident somewhere along the line. I have to say it was a very good look you had with it I'm stunned you just woke up one morning and decided to throw it all away and break it for spares. Did you have a good offer on specific parts beforehand ?

As for the black rather than chrome look I'll happily stand corrected if the end result looks anything like the Leon . Someone near me has attempted it with a new-ish Passat , the car is already black , he's sprayed everything that was silver / chrome black including the wheels and to my mind it looks absolutely ste , I'll try and sneak a few pictures next time I see it

Picked these up tonight' AP Coilovers, Virtually brand new used for around a month and a half or some thing' Complete and still with warranty etc. Just need to get new top mounts etc for.





Also took the tyres of my RH wheels last week, and the bolts out one' need to do the rest, ready to paint. Going for Satin black centres with matching Satin black dishes with Polished bolts for now. Just think it will be alittle different from the polished dishes as alot of people have them now especially with REPS.
