Evening from Boro..ish

Now then.

So I sold my old EP3 a while ago and have been pottering around in a yaris T sport for a bit. Missed Vtec massively although I didnt mind the lack of filling up at pumps. But that was on its last legs so I got rid of it and bought myself a 57 plate FN2.

I was dubious at first due to the top gear review and everyone saying they're awful, but having had the old one I figured it was a good car I'll give this one a go, and I did. I loved it, ok so its a bit softer than the EP3, corners worse(alot), definetely feels slower but it looks so much better, and its a much nicer place to be.

I travel to work 600 miles a week in it, yes I should have bought a diseasal but I enjoy driving, and driving diseasals aint my cup of tea.

Done 3k miles since I bought it, and its been great so far. Now its time to mod. First thing I'm after is a flashpro, buuut its just been christmas, so that will have to wait for a bit lol.

Anyway,

Out with the old


in with the new


Cheers

Sean

Welcome. Diesel stage 2 remap is the way forward for your amount of miles but you've picked well. Any mods planned or just staying standard?

Yeah, flashpro first, then exhaust, probably manifold and I've noticed on here a few cars with a black front splitter and mirrors which are looking pretty tasty. FRS too eventually.

Depends what I get allowed to spend on my car during the month by my missus lol.

Welcome mate

Nice looking FN2, If I was you I'd get FRS done first and you will be far happier with the cornering then.

Cheers all.

Lazytrev, got my heart set on the flashpro but if you recommend it that much it will be my second mod.
