My new car


Recommended Posts

Well finally changed my diesel car to..........urm another diesel car :rofl:

 

Needed something more involved to drive and an estate so after trying a few i spotted a mondeo st tdci and got it for a great price ;)

 

So far i have had a remap with a switch in the cabin to switch it off, switch to low and to high and i tell ya what a difference :) to start with its 155 bhp and silly amounts of torque but with the remap at full its approx 185 and stupid amounts of torque :hyper: so for a diesel its bloody fast, in fact for a front wheel drive car its possibly too much torque as it spins the front wheels to 3rd gear now ;)

 

Also installed some rear head rests with built in screens/dvd players, now that was a bitch to do :smw:

 

So over all very please with my purchase, just need to get my private plate off the wifes car and she aint happy about it LOL

What did I tell you. Those Mondeo TDCi's are ace. + they use a Volvo monocock and it shows in the build quality. The Volvo V70 D5 is still a better car though higher price and better residuals. However I'm contemplating Mondeo TDCi because Johns is such a peach to drive.
