  1. Did you get a power figure?
  2. I love this thing mate if you ever decide to sell let me know
  3. lol we've got a mk5 golf 140 as the family bus and the vrs wipes the floor with it to be honest. Not really sure how you can say it's not a sporty car, it's bags of fun especially with the new brakes and suspension. Have you driven one that's been tweaked? After a map it'll be a proper little weapon and I'll be getting even more mpg so I'm happy either way. I know what you're saying about the diesels but it's mainly effecting cities etc which I rarely go near. Plus if they start to die out then it'll be a rare car so I'll be keeping it and see how things go.
  4. Most people with standard cars get them dynod and find they're between 130 and 150 to be honest and I think it's towards 150. As far as I know it's standard and if it was mapped I'd expect it to easily pull on the cooper. It was defiantly trying as it's my mates- we were dead even. His is the early 163 though. lol are you sure?- thought they were only 107bhp and about the same on tourque?
  5. Well the gt didn't fair too well but me and the cooper s were about even which isn't bad considering mines completely stock. Also managed 60.2 mpg last weekend on a run up north without even trying. The gt must be poorly so will be looking in to that
  6. Looks lovely, decent mileage and price. GLWS
  7. Yeh sure he will def be selling them as he's got all the parts now. Ill get him to message you on here And we are only located near Andover so not far away
  8. Just find that the springs are really weak that's all
  9. 4-4250 looks good considering the history and length of ownership by you as well as it being in good nick although I've not seen it. I know for a fact that if my mate hadn't recently got his gt he'd have snapped this up. As you're in no rush then you're in a good position to just wait for the right person. Some people take the piss with their asking price and others with low offers so I guess it's just finding the middle ground
  10. Good cars allways sell mate stick with it. I had stupid offers on mine without even seeing the car which pissed me right off. The first person to actually come and look at it bought it. Have you had anyone come yet?
  11. Ha ha up to you mate but if/when you go down the performance route you might want to change it
  12. Yeh the speedlines are standard on SRs but admittedly not the lightest. They do a proper Motorsport wheel that looks very similar but I can't remember the name and I imagine they are expensive whereas the safaris are easy to come by. I like the idea of a red SR
  13. Absolutely lovely mate cracking car. A friend on here has a black gt square light- we work together and are converting it to a quadlight in the coming weeks I wouldn't fit the bailey mate they are pants from mine and his experience
  14. Real shame about the four. Love a good quadlight though so stick a link on here to the new thread
  15. I've always been sceptical about those sorts of ecus but you can't argue with the results at all
  16. How hard are the jam manifolds to come by? I think with piggyback and map you'd easily see over 200 but if it's running nice then I guess there not much point! I keep looking at glanzas but have got no chance of getting one anytime soon. If i do though it'll get SR repped- much easier than bolting a turbo on or doing a full conversion plus I should make some money back.
  17. Hi mate been meaning to read through this for a while, cars looking great. Looks like you're making more progress on track now- I imagine it's a little quicker than the SR! 191 is fantastic especially with what you've done so far
  18. Hopefully the Shell was saved. Didn't fancy a forged build on it?
  19. Keep it NA mate. I'd visit Motorsport Electrics and get one of their new ECUs fitted and mapped along with the corolla inlet and OBX you should see 100bhp. Get some black speedline safaris on there too
  20. Have you still got it? Another idea I had was SR repping a glanza, much easier than boosting one and getting all the interior etc
  21. Ah no way what happened to the gt4?
  22. have you got any pics? you dont see many SR reps. When i had my ep95 a few years ago i was going to boost it and then rep an SR but sold it when i found out my wife was pregnant
  23. I know what you mean, my fabia is lovely to drive, confy and pretty quick for what it is but it's not the same as the SR and you do miss the feel of them don't you
  24. If he's got any sense he will keep the sr for sunny weekends and put the miles on the TT! We will all be kicking ourselves as I can see them now becoming collectable. If I could've stored mine I would've
  25. Well done mate good ones are worth the money and defiantly don't hang about
