Looks very nice bud. How much would you recommend the anti lift?

I'm booked in for 2+ with my R on Friday and already struggling to get my power down at 2!
Been tempted but didn't know if it was just a bit of a gimmick

Cheers mate - would thoroughly recommend, I wouldn't say it offers huge gains in the way of additional traction but from a handling point of view its incredible. It feels like I can take corners which beforehand I wouldn't have dreamt off

Installed puddle lights! Wasn't as difficult as first thought - Wish I had some replacement clips so I will have to have the cards off again, but what a great mod!

I went via the cabin, which is easy for some, a pain for others as the clip doesn't always want to come out.

It was a pain for me, but persisting paid off as i didn't want to remove the wiper motors etc.

1) Remove the drivers glovebox (shown below)
Image
2) Unclip the the fuses and unclip the canbus gateway (it's not fun)
Image
3) Plug canbus into the polarfis, and plug polar fis into the original port.


What is this for?
And what the hell is polarfis? Lol I'm a noob about this stuff haha

Hello mate, not sure I believe they are from Amazon - bought them off another forum user. Easyrider's guide above may help

PolarFis allows you too see all the engine parameters hidden by the car. Things like the boost of turbo, temperature of intake and for diesels im told it will tell you how long till your DPF regen.

Awesome looking car Phil, very tastefully modded and I love the colour. Did you ever get anywhere with the front splitter fab?

Nothing new on the modification front (The joys of home ownership has brought this to a halt)! Currently enjoying the setup as it is, the Rtech map and all supporting mods are proving plenty powerful for now although at somepoint in the future I would like to go stage 2+, but until I can afford the HPFP and brake upgrade, it shall have to wait. Still got some chrome tipped window switches to install however :clap:

Here's a few from various meet ups this year with easyrider, maz and others :yes:
