Andy Mac's VW Passat - Ms Margaret

Recommended Posts

Nice car, Really like the Passats. Got something similar myself. 1900 TDI A4 130, goes like a train but feels like a boat coming into harbour while trying to park lol

 

I'd reccomend a remap on it, cost me £150 at Awesome GTI in Manchester and it raised the power from 130 to approx 170.

 

here's a couple pics of it, should do an update on it soon

I was refering to the length and turning circle of it mainly , the titanic could have probably run rings round it lol they're not too bad I guess for parking. Just a lot different to being in an Escort. Is yours the SE? the Audi SE's had higher and softer suspension, mine is 20mm lower than the standard ones being the "sport"

Oh I get ya lol yea turning circle of the QE2 mine has lol, especially since it's been lowered, mine isjust the 'S' which at first I thought was sport but it isn't, it had the higher and softer suspension which I hated lol, had way too much body-roll lol

 

I was considering getting a de cat for it, theres one on ebay for about a tenner. Would you reccomend it ? does it sound any different ?

 

I would definitely do it mate, for a tenner I'd snatch his hand off haha, doesn't sound any different at all but picks up quicker from low revs, as I previously mentioned in my project thread, it flattened out a torque spike I was getting at 1400-1600rpm so my tyres are happier lol, the boost picks up a lot faster and smoother from low revs as removing the cat enables the turbo to spool up a bit faster, I want the 'owl' noise or 'chooo' when I let off the throttle so I'll be doing a mufflerectomy very soon too haha

 

Go for it mate and I'll tell u how to fit it too lol (looks a pain in the @$$ but it's actually quite easy lol)
