    Ben - so you currently have to change the bi-modal valve manually? (or do you just leave it open for "loud"?)

    Nice ride Ben!!

    How you find the Viezu tune?,

    Are you planning to do anything to your suspension?

    Cheers!

    Neither. There's on, off and auto. Default is auto. The existing vacuum hose from the car operates the valve automatically. Same as stock. Although on this TBE, when the valve is open, the exhaust bypasses the muffler because the 2nd pipe doesn't enter the muffler at all, just goes straight through the right tail. I'll post pics...

    Thanks Marco! I love the Viezu tune. Very happy with it. Torquey as hell

    Absolutely no plans for suspension. I have ACC and I don't want to mess with it. I've read a lot about suspension mods with ACC and have chosen to leave it as is. I use it all the time and at the moment, Sport setting is working quite well on the track. As soon as I've reached the limits of grip or I experience a real need for extra cornering stability, I might consider stiffer sway bars or even disable the ACC and go all-out with the goods.

    As you might tell, I modify for performance, not for looks. The ride height doesn't bother me.

    Boltor:



    In the above pic, the pipe at right is coming from the front of the car. You can see where the valve is. I was wrong, some of the exhaust will enter the muffler when the valve is open, but most will come out the tail pipe.









    The photo below is the bottom of the stock exhaust. You can see how all the exhaust enters the muffler. You can also see the the valve just after the muffler on the right tail pipe.

    Ben/Machine.

    I love your machine :3

    Rims looks pretty good too =).

    Question on the bimodal, I can see it isn't sitting correctly centred in the snap, or has it been re-adjusted?

    Thanks Matthew

    Are you referring to the tail pipe(s)?
