THE NEED FOR TORQUE!

Recommended Posts

It's less interesting then you would think :P 98 bhp with 190 nm torque. Could go to appr. 240 - 250 nm torque but then the clutch start slipping. :rant: and offcourse there is no better clutch available for de SDI, so if anyone can think of an solution please let me know!

Cheers :)

Toying with selling it as I fancy a new cooper d but struggling to justify paying monthly when this is paid off and does 65 mpg with £30 tax. Would consider if the right offer came along tho ..

Well sod's law that I put a pic up and then some lass decides to go into the back of me while at a junction... just a replacement bumper but still a bit annoying as it's in such good condition :rant:
