Hi guys!

for one moment, I thought there weren't any RS drivers around anymore =(

Newbie RS driver here.

1) Do you guys tune your RS?

2) Does it get noisy in the boot area, particularly the styrofoam part where the spare wheel is?

3) Do you guys take out your spare wheel to lighten the car?

1) No tuning, bone stock.

2) Didnt notice noise, probably because i'm always in the driver seat. anyway i have additional layer of "carpet" material over the whole boot, guess that'll help.

3) Never remove, spare tyres are there for a reason. I bought a stem valve extension so it's easier to check the pressure without having to remove the whole spare.

Last night I realised that the spare tyre wasn't bolted onto the boot *it only took me 1 week to realize =)*, the wheel was basically moving about the boot area hitting the styrofoam *hence the squeeky noise*
 

Kevin613 - What do you mean by additional layer of carpet?? Got pic to share?

FC seems pretty bad, didn't know what the previous owner did to the car. Getting about 6.5-7km per litre =(

Sorry, boot mat is probably the better word (PVC coil mat cut to fit the boot)

 

I'm getting about 7.5L/100km - 11L/100KM depending on right foot, which translate to about 9-13.3KM/L.
Manual Transmission

mine is about 10-12L/100km, which is about 8-10KM per L, depends on highway or small road. driver state is almost always in monster mode.

FC problems, give your car a one time full servicing EO/gear oil/transmission oil/air filter/oil filter/new plugs - dont believe the dealer when they say they have changed, clean TB, reset ECU, then drive around in 2 full tanks for the car to learn your driving style. On your 3rd tank you should see better mileage.

 

If not, then you have more problems such as bad o2 sensor, clogged fuel filter, or a bad tune. these are generally harder to diagnose.

Taffazani, dude, was reading through your post, seemed like you had a few steering pump and timing belt issues. hope all is repaired and

good now.

Yea it's all good now. Imagining getting the car and less than 2 months THAT happened. 6k worth of repairs Bro, imagine what I could have have done with that money instead.
