    Who’s going to Tesla after their current TDI?

    The problem with the Polestar is the equipment packs. You can’t add equipment individually, it doesn’t come with active cruise control, if you want it (and you do) you have to add the Pilot pack for 3200 USD. If you want the heat pump you have to add the Plus pack, 4000 USD. This is the reason...

    Who’s going to Tesla after their current TDI?

    The ID.3 lacks character, specialty in the front, it is just a big boring blob. The Born looks a lot better, at least in the pictures, haven’t seen one IRL yet. I have heard reviewers saying the Born will be more expensive than the ID.3, but at least in Norway it is significantly cheaper

    Who’s going to Tesla after their current TDI?

    Yes, electric cars have no sales tax, normal sales tax in Norway is 25%, they dont have to pay the first time registration fee, for ICE cars it is base on a car’s weight, CO2 and NOx emission. Of the 350.000NOK that Golf I used in my previous post costs, 47.000NOK is the registration fee. If you...

    Replacing the clutch on our 4Motion cars is a crapy job, so my tip is to do it properly the first time. I would just ask Petter what his setup is

    Golf 4Motion Built thread - Holset DSS Darkside

    I haven't done much the last year other than drive it, but I did find out that the wastegate was not closing properly, so back in January I adjusted the tension. Spoolup was 3300rpm, after adjusting the wastegate I now have full boost at 2600 rpm. I am also running 1.9 bar now, 1.7 before. In...

    AGR engine tuning help

    Which MAP sensor do you have? AGR comes standard with a 2.5 bar map For comparison, here is a log file from my AGR, Holset HE200W wastegate turbo, DSSR .280 nozzles, 3 bar MAP sensor and a custom tune. The tune is not finished, and the wastegate spring on my turbo is very stiff, so I have some...

    best clutch kit.

    Sorry, I forgot to get back to you. I strongly recommend a clutch pack for TDI, often labeled as a silent kit. I´m running a custom variant of this kit from Darkside. My kit has a custom disk not listed on the website, they claim it is capable of holding 540nm, but I don't know if they are...
