Re: Just completed a 6hr drive in the 1.6t

u697040 hi yes a cracking car and like yourself would like to tune up as well. I think it could handle 225-230hp quite nicely but won't do too much more as I think the gearbox is approaching its max figure Guys at true tune will get it to this figure and I'm also interested in the gpf delete. I've ...

Re: Just completed a 6hr drive in the 1.6t

Ok guys nothing new here but just completed a 6hr drive in the 1.6t Sri and have to say it's one of the best cars I've had for travelling in. Just one stop for the Mrs and what should of been a 3 1/2 hr drive back from Devon turned into a 6 hr road trip lol. Obviously this was due to Christmas traf...

EDS remap will crack it. Google them. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapata...

Re: Sorry, another buying advice topic

Get a pre gpf 1.6t so look for the lower 0-60 times. I drove a newer one and didn't feel as good as my 16 plate 1.6t sri. I think late 18 they changed.

Re: sri with elite map - ideal

I have a 1.6t sri with the sport button. If it's off the car feels flat to me. The boost seams to come on quicker rather than have to press harder on the accelerator and wait for things to build up. I was having a play with a golf GTI and I was struggling until hit hit the sport button. Once that w...

Re: Sorry, another buying advice topic

Tried all the different versions of the K and settled with my 1.6t sri. Has everything I need and goes very well indeed. You will get 40mpg on your run if you drive it normally. 40k on the clock and never a problem unlike most other engined K's.

Re: Grinding gears, mainly 2nd

Yep mine does it! You have to get things just right or it will crunch. Never does it when I'm messing on my own so must be nerves if I'm up against another car!

Re: Paintwork impossible to maintain

1.6t 16 plate with 42k on the clock and the paint work is ok, normal chips on the front but you have to look close. My previous 1 series was no better tbh.
