Who here has plans to upgrade and mod their engine when parts start to become available? Anyone?
im waiting for my tdi sport to arrive..when it does im hoping to fit a k+n filter to it and when its ran in a bit a bluefin by superchips..this ups the nm to almost 400..its 320 standard and bhp to approx 175/80ish from 140..not cheap at £599 altho i saw one at london superchips on ebay that appeared to be £500..but it should pull like a train through the gears...Who here has plans to upgrade and mod their engine when parts start to become available? Anyone?
good question laura ..superchips say..quote..."In the unlikely event of bluefin being responsible for causing damage to your vehicle, Superchips will, under the terms and conditions of their warranty, repair your vehicle. The warranty is not intended to replace the existing manufacturer’s warranty, but will supplement the cover to include the parts deemed to be excluded by the manufacturer. Contact Superchips for full terms and conditions.."..i've used superchips before and they seem to be a quality company but it could be open to debate i suppose..the advantage of a bluefin over a standard superchip is that you can return the ecu to its original settings..if you did this after something had gone wrong so that you could call vw to say you had a problem then i suppose you may have commited a crime..i don't know..but who would know...vw now do a 170ps 2.0 tdi in the passat and golf so the engine/running gear should be able to take the extra n/m's..the chips are fully tested by superchips to make sure they are suitable for the car..this 170 may be offered in the eos in the future..of course you should also tell your insurance company you have a superchip/bluefin fitted....if you are not happy with the above then the simple advice would be do not have your car chipped..i've had 1/2 a dozen turbocharged petrol cars that have been chipped and i've never had any problems with them..they have just been a lot quicker..especially through the gears..the standard tdi is nippy enough..this just gives it an edge..What happens to your warranty if you fit this chip?
yeh..and the rest..couldn't believe how quickly i got to £26,000..without 2zone,cruise or sat nav fitted ..and not much of a discount given..its a lot for a diesel!!..but you only live once so i thought no point spoiling the car..lol..It would be nice for VW to do it....So we can continue with piece of mind with our 3 year warranty. Although it would probably be nearly £1000 knowing them.
thats not too bad..but still think they are overpriced..was going to get an 05 megane cc dci for abt 11-12k..then saw the eos and fell in love ..had to have one...hope its all worth it...lolI have 2.0 tdi sport, vienna leather, 6 cd changer.
Cost me £24080 + me plate
I part ex'd my Golf 1.6fsi sport 05 reg with 8,000 on clock just 13 months old having broke down 5 times. VW paid abit towards my eos cos if the trouble i had. They had this car, or the money on this car for 4 months while i waited for eos.
I only had to find £12,000 when buying mine.
yeh.deffo the best looking by far and the quality and residual value should make it a wise choice..looked at them all..i priced a twin top astra up and by the time i added leather ,xenons,p.d.c..etc that came to £24k+ n the quality was nowhere near as good...secondhand astras are losing money already but most eos's especially diesel seem to be selling for almost or even above list price so should be good on that score..Vw are over priced. A mate of mine saw and priced the Focus CC up. He said you could of had everything for alot less than you paid for that. But Vw have a better build quality than Ford and Renault although you pay for this.
I had a dodgy Golf but they are few and far between.
I like the blue and the red dials on the vw's. The Eos is the best looking I feel over the Megane, Peugeot 307cc, Vauxhall twin top and Focus cc. But maybe im biased. But it is the dearest...But you have to pay for quality I suppose
yeh tell me abt it..ordered mine 2nd of november..told march/april for delivery... noticed that the list price of a sport tdi went up in december to £22,630 a rise of £325 and metallic paint went up to £365 a rise of £30..glad i didnt have to pay that.. ..lolWhat keeps are values up though is the waiting lists. Waiting lists are great for residual values, just crap for those awaiting their new machine
Hi,Who here has plans to upgrade and mod their engine when parts start to become available? Anyone?
I agree. I test drove the Megane CC, the Astra CC and the 307 CC.
Then the Eos............
Could have saved myself thousands if I hadn't test drove the Eos lol, but, by far the best of the bunch. No comparison to be honest. Even with the top of the range Focus CC coming out soon with all the gadgets I have and at a good few thousand pounds less, I still had to have the Eos.
I think it will depreciate the least as well. So all in all, it's a lot to spend when buying, but in the long run..........probably the most sensible option.
And it looks the dogs bollocks!!
Does that mean VW will be doing this in the UK?Hi,
I am expecting delivery of a 2.0TFSI mid february. I will have it chip tuned by ABT in Germany, under VW warranty, to 240hp/330Nm.
This as alternative to the V6, which has the disadvantage of 20 litres less boot space due to the batteries in the back.
