Hi n welcome. 

I'm sure if you keep up the s/h , warm it up cool and it down (before and after Boost) , it will keep you smiling. 

Don't forget some pics , we like pics and it helps local members keep a eye out for you

We'll see once you've owned it a while .

I said I wasn't going to mod my first scooby 🙄

9yrs later all that remains of the original v3 UK is the dsr door ,front n rear bumpers and a few interior plastics 😂

Even if you don't intend to do any power mods , I'd recommend a dyno health check at some point .  some faults don't necessarily show ecu codes or running issues and it's always nice to know it's running healthy and safely.

Nice motor. Mines completely standard bar map (270 bhp) and big brake kit, same colour. I take it yours is a Hawkeye cheaper tax version mines an 07 plate. Sort the brakes out if they are standard as they are rubbish. That was the first mod i did. Godspeed brembo big brake kit to fit standard wheels. Massive improvement no fade anymore or spongy pedal. As yours seems to have bigger wheels i would get some STI brembos and fit them.

Think I am goner get the rear windows tinted like yours. More pictures please. It looks lowered to me so not standard, maybe the bigger wheels make it look that way.

Nice mate, and thanks for advice, I'm unsure of how long I should let it warm up/cool down before and after fun time ha ha

Something is better than nothing just be sensible and treat her nice. If I had oil temp gauge i would not boost until oil is at least 80 degrees maybe more. Looking into oil and pressure gauge next possibly. **** thread confusion cause we where talking live  and i did not realise it swapped.

My front lights are starting to yellow too. Goner polish and put some 3M clear wrap on them for UV protection. Once thats goes yellow just peel off and re apply new wrap. Mine has the Zunsport grills which do look nice. Other than that I am going to replace/upgrade things as they die, I am sorter hoping the suspension goes so i can justify the money, lol.
