    My new car :)

    Bought my new car today.

    I got a black Skoda Fabia vRS. Popped along to the Skoda dealer in Ampthill and they had one in the showroom all ready to go, taxed the lot. It was going to go on as a demo next week but I bought it . I had my eye on a silver one but fell in love with the black when I saw it in the 'metal'

    I pick it up Saturday...look out for pics very soon









    Sweeet. Gonna be a long week I can tell.

    Techie i take it you know about re-mapping ect?

    Well the guys at dastek told me they could put 20bhp onto my car with one of their ecu units for £300+vat

    Is it possible to get these gains on a 1.8 16v astra with re-mapping?
