No matter, the car now handles much better, and is already more powerful with the engine mods you've had done.
Will be even more fun when the turbo's fitted and the engine tuned to suit!

I guess you look like this when driving


If in doubt, Accelerate!

turbo aside...
i am thinking of installing a Clarion NX501E unit...have a very (very) good offer for new unit but without warranty...

Anyone had any experience with that unit maybe?

Looks like an excellent unit, Clarion usually are decent any way.
Can't find any reviews in English, but the one Dutch site I found gave it 4.5 outta 5 stars!

Sounds like it'll fit nicely in your uprated car mate

If in doubt, Accelerate!

For someone who was short of cash 4 months ago you have certainly been flashing the cash.

If I was that flush I would not be investing it on a Ceed.

Great news Jajceko, so glad the turbo has finally turned up, let's hope it works far better than the last 2 !!
How's the new stereo now you've had it installed a while?

Seven7 - I also wish I was in his financial state

If in doubt, Accelerate!

i am very pleased with the Clarion unit. a lot of nice options and it works really good.
will have more info when i add all those cables and addons i have for it

and just to be clear ...i love my car and i am not looking to change it...
maybe i am foolish to invest in it...but it is my business ...
i am just typing here to share some info for others who might walk my steps after me...

so far it looks like everything will be done by the end of next week...
hope my bad turbine curse has ended

So do I mate, and there's nothing wrong with tuning or spending cash on your car.

You love it, it's your cash, and it'll be really sweet once you've finished upgrading (if you ever stop that is )

Bottom line is, on Astra, Focus, Golf forums there's loads of guys throwing £££££ at their beloved car to make it unique or quicker, but seems there's few really modified pro_ceeds out there. Shame as I think they're better looking & less common than all of the above !!

All I know is I'd love to drive your turbo nutter beast when it's done

If in doubt, Accelerate!
