We should make a list of all the cool cars on DS.

There are so many right now.

Very nice ride man.
I didn't know Seat's were so popular since we never see anything like this in the States. My only familiarity is with seeing the name on the GranTurismo games so there's not much information on the brand in our part of the world.
Nice seats and love the red stitching, nice touch.
There also looks to be some performance in the car too with the red caliper and R designation.
Congratulations again. thumbs_up.gif

^ The Leon is surprisingly popular in the UAE. The rest of the range...not so much. You do see the odd Altea around, but that's about it.

Update:

Not as interesting as Mustangs as most of my upgrade is ECU related but I still had to fit a couple of parts to make sure it could handle the remap, should take it up from 225 to around 260.



Engine bay now set up for a sub if I feel the need.



Forge intake pipe as the standard one is prone to collapse after a remap.



Got some nice mats too!

My best-friend is deciding between a brand-new FR or a Clio RS. He just had his mind-blown during a test-drive of the Clio RS. For all FWD haters, this is a guy that just got rid of his modded E90 325. Couldn't believe how intense the RS was, the steering feel was beyond belief, as was the handling. I can't wait to drive it...worried I may not feel the same about the Pug afterwards.

^^^ Have you driven it yet, Moe?

I tried an RS with the Cup chassis yesterday and it was great. Almost Lotus Exige Cup levels of feel and control — I'm sold thumbs_up.gif

Haha yeah, we exchanged cars on a drive we did a while back. I wasn't a fan of the shifter, but other than that it was sublime. My friend doesn't have a cup chassis, but still amazingly stable. The steering is ultra precise with great feedback, and a lot of stability. I swapped back to my Peugeot after driving it, and the same things the RS did without breaking a sweat, made my car feel like it was on the edge of losing control, or toppling over...or something. Not as much feel in the Peugeot either.

We kind of had a mini-Top Gear Arabia session where we all drove up to the mountains in our cars, exchanged them, then drove some more. Met up at points, and exchanged our views. The Z4M Roadster one of my friends recently bought stole the show though. The acceleration was just brutal compared to the hatches, and the noise was glorious. Also helped that it was a beautiful summer day, and it was a convertible.

Got everything fitted and im happy, I didn't realise but the car actually had a crappy map on it already so it was flashed back to standard and then an adjustable map was put on, gains all round so im happy with the results.

Orange is the old map red is standard and blue is the new map with the bolt ons, timing at 4 and boost set to 6.

Hot damn... what does that leave you with for performance figures? 0-100 kmph, etc?
