Hi all, I’ve just joined after having my RS for a few months now. It’s has a few interior tweaks, just had a Remap and awaiting a scorpion exhaust for a bit more noise. I’d like to do something about the shocks which I’d guess are standard as it’s on 42k now, when you push it it bounces around to much for me even in normal mode.. I am in the sunny East Midlands. 😎
Glad you are enjoying the car but don’t swap out the shocks just yet until you have yourself a DSC Module. Its like a remap for the suspension system. Definitely a must regardless. I do have one of these on my car BTW. A few second hand ones pop up every now again.
Thanks again for all the hello’s… I got my remap from remap kings, it’s a one time permanent non switchable map. Only took 30 mins via the odbii port and claims +51hp and 81nm torque. I’ve used the company 3 times now on a couple of Minis JCW and Cooper S’s and have been really impressed with the performance gains and the service from the company. Price was £434 but there’s usually a summer /winter /spring sale on via the website giving £100 off. I’ve only driven 20 miles with the remap so early days. I don’t think the initial pull away from standing is noticeable different but definitely pushes you back in the seat more if you give the beans once it’s doing 3500 – 4000 rpm, regardless of driving mode. I’ve spent the last of the kids inheritance on a scorpion exhaust as it’s too quiet with a standard Ford pipe, I’ve already got a J9 exhaust valve controller so looking forward to getting it all fitted and working. I would be very interested if anyone got options on the DSC controller mentioned above, I’ve seen them for £916 on line but it’s out of my budget at the moment- if anyone is swapping cars and has a 2nd one? I know it will be as rare as rocking horse droppings. 😝
