1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Well, its that exciting time for me to change my car.

    On a whim, a snap decision I've bought and pick up this old jalopy on Thursday, off for a engine remap on Saturday.

    I hope it lives up to expectation, I've had VW Golfs the last two automobile rounds, fist impressions are very good, impressed me on the short test drive.

    Very nice mate. I'm old enough to remember the original Sirocco which was ahead of it's time in appearance, never owned one myself though as I was a Ford man - RS Mexico & RS2000's and the Capri 2.8i.

    How does chipping impact on insurance cost? Met a guy a couple of weeks ago with a chipped Defender getting decent mpg return and wondering about cost benefit for my XTrail

    I'd recommend AMD or Jabbasport for a VW remap over superchips any day. I've used jabba and my friend has used AMD several times and they are specialists on those engines.

    Marketing ploy. You will use the new power and therefore will use the same amount of fuel or more. But you'll enjoy it more :D

    if you drive it as before, the mpg improves slightly, if you floor it to take advantage of the power increase, then the mpg improvement is cancelled out, so stays the same as standard - had mine done a year ago mate

    the superchips remap is untraceable without a dyno run (they modify your particular ecu map) .... so its up to you if you declare it ;)

    Yea, it's horses for courses, as said, you're more likely to use your right foot for the fun of it, mrs's Audi 3 is far better mpg, the other two Ive had done have returned better or about the same mpg.

    I'll look into that, thanks, I've always had good service from SC, thanks for the heads up.

    edit just looked and jabbasport don't even have a remap for Scirocco's, so it's a no go.

    Looks lovely Kyska mate
    I remember my mate having one of the originals in white
    Great motor.
    My old boss got his Toyota Celica GT4 chipped in Blackpool somewhere ???
    Can't remember the name of the firm though
    I know there was well lane turbos in batley at one point but don't know if they're still going
    That Celica was ridiculous in 3rd gear, seemed like never ending torque
    He also had a corrado VR6 which was a nice drive too and I thought that was the replacement for the scirroco

    They do, just they don't have everything on their website. Its the same engine across the entire VAG range so they know it inside out! Give them a ring.
