  2. Hi all, going to be changing my differential and gearbox oils. Looking at Redline 75W90 for the diff, Redline MT-LV 70W/75W for the gearbox. Anyone care to confirm I am looking at the correct oils??

    Let’s see a pic of your wiring going into the seat and the new wiring you have made. That wiring was my problem once all coded, the wires weren’t seated correctly.

    Diesel MOT

    Passed mot no problems, didn’t ask for a printout of emissions. Will do that next time but hopefully have a 525/530 by that point

    I didn’t even need to change the vin. I added the $494 to the vo and deleted previous seat code. I then went into the MASK and found SITZ_HEIZUNG and set that to aktiv. Once wired (properly) they worked. Although your full comfort seats will have a different code to $494.

    Diesel MOT

    Ok power crazy guys... what kind of power can I get out of this m47 2.0? I’ve read somewhere on here a guy got 270bhp?????? Surely not? Realistically what’s achievable? And what’s involved apart from the map... upgrade turbo and intercooler? I plan on cleaning those 2 parts soon and maybe recon the turbo myself, so you power crazy guys got me thinking

    I got by with tis for the schematics. I planned on fully taking pics and doing a nice right up but it got so painstaking when it was done I was glad it was done. Still got drivers door card left to do... today.

    Diesel MOT

    Cars due in for mot very soon, as I removed the dpf a few months back I now have a black exhaust pipe. Could I be given a failure for this as it’s evidence I no longer have a dpf? Also anyone know if I will pass with the tiny amount of smoke my exhaust generates? I’m hearing any kind of smoke is a failure.
