    Bit of pampering on my 855 T5...

    So yesterday morning the old tank got some Meguires love, two bucket shampoo Gold Class, NXT Tech Wax after some careful mark buffing with ScratchX and a touch up pen where required... the old girl scrubs up OK, I've also now done 500 miles on the remapped Oblark ECU, feels excellent, very progressive mapping with peak boost now 15psi instead of the std 9.7psi

    Took a mate out in it yesterday, greasy road traction was not the best on full boost, but the sounds from the stainless exhaust were awesome

    Intention is to make this car as close as possible to mint condition, but mechanically sound and a little better/quicker than standard, all on a tight budget - it's just a well serviced car (full volvo service history) with 136k miles, cat back Powerflow (no back box), ITG filter element, and an Oblark mapped ECU.

    It's worth adding that I used 3 coats of Plasticare on the front and rear bumpers, these were nearly white and very shabby, I'll report back on how it weathers, but after initial heavy rain and 3 days it still looks great at this stage.

    My boring work Audi took second stage, as seen sulking in the first pic
