    2017 RS-V Astra upgrades

    Been a while since doing the forum thing but I just bought the wife a new RS-V Astra that I had the dealership get lowered & 19's fitted before delivery.
    Seems a good little car & the suspension has turned out great but was wondering if there are any aftermarket upgrades mainly in the engine department as I am happy visually with what I have had done.
    Just chasing a bit more aggression out of the power curve if possible. Thought I'd ask now so I have time to save up if required while the engine gets time to run in first.

    Have a look into an eds ipf. Its a handheld tuning device which can update you map as upgrades are installed. Stage 1 does not require any upgrades and will provide you with plenty of power. You can bring back to standard as you wish too.

    And the 19% MwSt (gst) is not payable by you so will be deducted.

    Did you go with the EDS device Brooksy? I'd be interested to see how it goes.

    Legsmatty,
    I haven't done anything with the wifes Astra except some pinstriping. I have been too busy with Offroad race trucks. Things are still going to be hectic the next couple months so at a guess I won't bother with the Astra until Tax time I'd say

    Eds have 20% discount so without shipping, it'll cost you Euro 370
