Hi all, I was hoping to have my Canon DSLR back so I could some decent pics but that's a bust so here's the obligatory ipotato pic until then.



It's a Daytona Avant with 84K miles, sunroof, black wheels, white interior and mighty thirst for V-Power

Anyway, my current plans are typical "me" really!

This month (already booked) -

Visit MRC tomorrow for Health check
Stage 2 mapped at MRC inc filters & 2nd Cat delete (only if healthy) - 730+hp & ft/lbs
Swap the Tyres to GY-F1AS2
Swap the front brakes to AP Racing Discs, DS2500 Pads and the VW Phaeton backplate
Swap the rear pads to DS2500
Swap the brake fluid to ATE Super Blue or what ever it's called nowadays
Update MMI and Nav disc (still 2008 on both)

Next Month (none set in stone) -

Fix any Health issues found at MRC (no time off work to do it earlier)
H&R Roll bars
Exhaust mod (backbox bypass like my C5)
Bigger intercoolers (for cooling rather than extra power)
Charity Trackday

Future -

Detailing (previous owner used lots of AutoWashers I think)
Enjoy the crap out of it
No idea on mods, if any!

The brake bits have already started arriving -



and I think the Pads might "just" be big enough

Well, back from MRC & got a clean bill of health and came away with 740hp and 740ft/lbs (1005NM) which is a bit silly to be honest but unbelievable fun!

Guy - It was something I noticed whilst in the bog at MRC where they keep all the old dyno charts on the wall.

All the "older" cars like the B5 & C5 had nearly vertical torque curves at around 3000rpm but the newer cars like the C6 etc had gently sloping curves. This meant that my mapped C5 "felt" faster than the stock C6 even though it was 80hp down as you got a huge wallop on boost rather than a more refined push that built increased slowly.

The mapping doesn't change the way it come on boost but now instead of a single violent shove like the C5 you get a HUGE increasingly building wall that doesn't stop pushing you further and further into the seat until 5500rpm when the torque starts to die off and HP levels out (needs bigger turbos ) and you can finally breath again.

Awesome car, totally bat-poop stupid for the UK roads, I love it!

Thats why my first ride in a C6 was disappointing, coming from my mapped C5 and getting into the C6 it felt as though mine was quicker.
Didnt have the heart to say anything to the owner, told him it was AMAZING but in my mind I was thinking WTF lol

Love it. These things are ace. I will have one at some point.

This is not as stupid as it may sound I hope but what sort of mpg do you get?  Im just wondering how comparable it is to the likes of a B8 S4?

About 19mpg on the motorway before the remap and 23 after. Town is 15 on either and booting it is about 7 before and 3 after but those last two aren't that accurate to be fair.
