So to celebrate Blackadder's 140000km i decided to treat him to a some new wheels, tyres and a Unichip from Steve's Auto Clinic. Wow...how grateful he is. He responded with giving me 16kw more power and an amazing 59nm more torque. Power went up from 124kw @ 3600rpm to 140kw at 3400rpm. Torque from 367nm @ 2500rpm to 426nm @ 2500rpm. Happy...Happy... :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

Wheels and Tyres from Quickfit in Motaque gardens.

Looks very nice! How much did the unichip set you back money wise? On paper that figures is great, but how do you experience the extra power driving your car? Is it wow?
Thanks

Kon nog nie sy volle potensiaal voel nie...die paaie is maar nat hier by ons op die oomblik. maar ja...dit is wow...Jy kan 'n baie duidelike verskil voel. Sal hom hopenlik oor die naweek bietjie gaan ordentlik toets. Volgens die vervaardigers behoort daar ook 'n aansienlike verbetering in brandstofverbruik te wees. Die koste was R5900.
