Most mods for those asking will best be listed as performance then added 'extras'

As u folks know the 7 is mainly ran by computers so most mods are laptop induces with som mechanical changes.

chip upgrade and complete remap of 'brain' output now 495 BHP

suspension is electronically dampened and thus automatically ajustable, this is automatically set into sports mode (30 cm drop) when either the sports button is pressed or the strobes or siren is activated.

ATC gearbox remapped to allow for more engine braking when brake pedal is tapped (knocks it down 1 or 2 cogs) 'automatic'


bilstein shox all round and poly bushes to stiffen the ride when needed

manual overide switch installed to completely disable the traction control for when the urge to shit ones pants in required!

aftemarket rad and fan fitted (South African climate issues addressed)

Cat removed to allow zorst gases thru faster

Full zorst system replaced now taking gases away from each bank of four cylinders seperately to allow engine to breath better.

Tarox discs and pads all round to ensure stoppimg performance equivalent to hitting a tree.

cosmetically all windowns limo tinted due to nature of vehicle use (windscreen tint removed for uk use) side and back windows still tinted.

wheels upgraded to deep dish units for cooking pizza in and riding on pirelli asimo 245's at 210 a corner.

'extras'

150 watts whelan siren unit with wail, yelp, piercer, two tone and air horn sounds (http://www.fedsig.com/multimedia/sirens/?id=114) on this site if u wanna entertain the kids lol

Visor strobes, wig wags (makes headlights flash alternatavely) fitted to front headlights and rear foglights also green and blue strobes inside back window and scrolling led message board with programmed messages

various medical equipment, oxygen, defib unit etc etc


uprated satnav, radio comms unit, Snooper and cctv (4) which has a romote dial into option for if car is out of view on site in 'rough areas' i can call it up on my mobile and 'look from inside' to check all is ok.

they say a picture says it all, mine says
Lifesaver, fooking move!

the technical term for upgrades to my car are best described as

It squats and fooks off

Was it your 'brain' they remapped to make you think it was 495bhp raftl

Id love to know where more than 200bhp comes from with a remap raftl
