I use to have a golf ED30 3dr with Apr and was a great car, I sold that to a mate who has now tweaked that to 430bhp. I now live in Queenstown and have some nice open roads and wanted a cool car. I looked at the S8 V10 5.2 bascially a lambo engine with a few mods. These cars new where over $240k I picked a good example in Christchurch 2 owners 88k's, I decided on a remapp and cut out the resonators. This is the result....

Great valve all alloy car weighing approx 1990kg with super comfort and you get a very cool sounding car that still delivers 11.7/100k when driving like nanna  >:D

Hey Max how's this car going? Any developments - I'm looking at one and was wondering what it is like to live with in NZ...
