Hey,
Just joined up and thought I would say hello. Been reading the forum for a few weeks now but never posted.

Currently drive a 200sx with 340bhp and a chipped Astra CDTI with 200bhp but thinking of selling both and getting the A5 3litre TDI :)

Noticed nobody on here seems to use the CRD2 chips. I have one on my Astra and seen they give good results on the A5 as well, so luckily if I get my A5 I can just swap it over..

Hoping to get a nice Black one with the 19s and all the toys :)

Hello and welcome. You have another A5 coming to Glasgow soon. One of my colleagues is taking delivery early May. 2.0TFSi Sport, Red with 19's and toys on! Keep your eyes open for it. You never know, I may be able to persuade him to join in. Let us know what you decide.

Hello and Welcome from down south... you know, that country attached to Scotland, like an unwanted appendage, where the prime minister lives! ;)

...gotta love that 3.0TDi! I'd trade them both in at a snap! ...although O would say, mymate has a Astra TDi, and it flies!

Go on... take the plunge!

SAJ... regarding the CRD2 chip, it's another 'sensor-intercept' box, but quite an intelligent and sophisticated one. However at £350 I'd say it's better to spend an extra £150 and get an ECU remap.

Hey, thanks for the welcomes.

The CRD2 box can be had cheaper than that, I think I paid a good bit less for mine and the support from them has been great.

290bhp and 430lb/ft on the last rolling road

Welcome evil (Never thort I'd say that :eek:)

I'm biased of my 3.0TDI, but what a car, especially with the mods :D

Sell now and buy an A5 ;)

Still deciding between the bmw 335d as it can be chipped to 350bhp which sounds awesome, but there a5 is a bit rarer on the roads and is much nicer inside.

Heres my Astra - 200bhp




And then my 200sx -340 bhp Drifty fun :)

Excellent last picture. I remember how good these cars were (but dull as hell inside). I can almost see the fuel guage emptying the tank at that speed. Good job!
