Really chuffed to be an R32 owner, by far the best hatch I've owned, including Astra SRi and Focus ST. This is just in a different league.

This one is a 5 door, 56 plate, manual, with just 30k on clock... Not sure if it's anyones on here?

Looking to have the following done:
-Cruise Control
-SatNav/DVD
-Remap and possibly exhaust (looking at JBS in Chesterfield as it's just round the corner)
-Gunmetal/black alloys

Anyone know what sort of real world performance gains I'm likely to get from a remap/intake/exhaust? Also, can anyone recommend someone to retrofit cruise/SatNav?

Love the R !

I had a milltek fitted on my mk4 at jbs a couple of years ago as i'm only 10 minutes away from them too, they did a good job on the exhaust and made sure it was all lined up perfectly, i havent used them for a while as i dont have an R32 any more but should be selling my S4 soon and getting a mk5 R


I will keep my eyes open for you if your in the chesterfield area !

If you are looking for anything to do with SAT NAV, Talk to Nick, I believe his username is N113KF or something like that, he did my RNS510 in my MK5 and it's awesome - at a spot on price too.

Welcome!

I just got milltek sports cats and cat back, ITG filter and after a remap it's now at 280. You may get close to 300 with new cams and manifold.

Thanks for all the help guys!

What does 280bhp look like in terms of 0-60 or other 'real world' figures?

JBS say a remap will give around a 5 second 0-60 time (DSG)... I would say that's optimistic to say the least?? I'm aware this will be slower with manual also.

Best word of advice ignore all these claimed figures and enjoy the car for what it is and what it can do because if your chasing figure you picked the wrong car! A remap will certainly change the way the car drives and an exhaust will certainly enhance that ear porn that we all love so dearly
