Re: BIG plans for my Cactus in the spring!

Well I had the remap done this week, and I must say it´s pretty impressing what they can do with that whimsy little engine :o ! The power output is now 144.8 HP by the wheels. The tuner was very professional and extremely thorough. It seemed that the engine only had 109.4 HP, but I guess it´s becaus...

Re: BIG plans for my Cactus in the spring!

Already done it! Worth it. I used Quantum! £245. Ok that was cheap! And no problems with MOT, insurance or anything? And it´ s remapping/optimzation and not chipped, right?

No answers on the Rip Curl tyres ............

Re: Door rim corrosion

Just got my Cactus back from the dealer, who installed 4 new doors. It only took them 4 days.
Had a loan car for free (no insurance payment). Didn´ t even have to pay for the gas I used, lol.
They had vacuumed, cleaned and washed the Cactus. Super service!!
