    TLC to my TSI

    hello fellow Amarokers, Well been fun owning my TSI S/C, when i bought her did alot of cleaning and stripped out most of the cabin to clean it and make it mine, did new discs and pads as they were buggered beyond repair BUT it was sold to me with a FSH, And today decided to spoil her and went from 16" steelies to 19" Milfords with pirellis on.

    will take and add some pics, still along way to go as i have a long list i want to achieve.

    Nice but they need to be black .... and that front bumper needs to be colour coded

    Then you need to fit spotlights to it .... it won't stop for a while now

    heya guys,

    just a question for a TSI newbie, but is there a way to check C0 levels as my TSI tend to throw a light puff of smoke under hard or higher revs. Normal? 159 000kms. thinking the cat is done as its still OEM.

    Makes a big difference as to what tyres you put on them and can bring your speedo down several % and if too far will underread your speed which can have bad outcomings I note you are in SA but to do that in AUS would be illegal.
    It also ups your gearing and can put added strain on components and also affect braking ability

    They look good so I suppose thats the main thing
