  1. a unit called the spider was mentioned some months ago by nate 73 who i think has since defected to audi,i don't know if he ever installed one though. I have this unit installed, did it on sunday. Makes so much difference. You can feel the extra power, the car has less of a flat spot before the turbo and the torque is awesome, just testing the mpg at the moment. So far im averaging the same but havent really drove economically yet, although i did today and was getting in excess of 48mpg but did you had a 5th Injector recall done? i had my done and the flat spot problem seem to be gone, so unless this device make it alots better even after the 5th injector recall, then i will question if its money good spend. also which one you fitted to your car? Spider® diesel tuning system or the Venom system? Regards Maz the unit took 10mins to install, its the spider unit which constantly updates to provide performance or economy depending on how you drive. You simply connect the unit into the common rail socket and attach the unit to the battery and your done, all instructions are included. I havent had the fifth injector done, my 220d is a 57 plate. It still has the turbo lag at low revs but its so much better now than before and im afraid that 6th gear is still quite poor, however there is some improvement. Im off to London today so ill let you know what the mpg is like after the journey. I drove through Notts yesterday though and was averaging 48mpg.

  3. where and when will we be able to see the results for the spider unit and have you got increased insurance costed yet. Not sure when, the web site just says coming soon. I'll price up when if I decide to go ahead. http://www.dieseltuning.co.uk/ Has anybody heard anything about this unit or tried it? seriously considering getting one, just wondered if it was worth it
  4. How much was it exactly? was it for an is 250/220d? and what percentage tints did you have/would advise? Ive never had window tints before but looking into it for the lex Cheers
  5. Im in the Uk have a 220d and im 24. I think there are others on here around this age or younger too
  6. I get a rattling from the parcel shelf but it can often be heard, not just during warm weather. Do you know what the fix for the rattling is for the passenger air vent?
  7. Has anyone lowered their 220d? If so what size drop have you gone for? What springs have you used? What is the ride quality like? Do you have any pics? Also anyone got an ecu re-map unit from Diesel Tuning?

  9. let's use statistics from the spritmonitor.de IS250 9,32l/100km = £2091,85 IS20d 7,55/100km = £1897,53 difference of £194 IF the price of both models was same here, it is clear it is not worth to buy the diesel, but here is the 220d 4.000 euros cheaper. And you won't sell the petrol for more than the diesel. could it be worth taking these into consideration? Petrol Diesel
  10. http://www.trc-tuning.com/index_shop.htm These do a kit that would fit on the 220d as they have an aftermarket exhaust also that gives the car quad pipes
  11. I found it useful, very useful. I am one of these that cannot be arsed to read the manual and like to stumble upon things, this way its like having a new gadget on the car every now and then.
  12. I started with a 1.2 Nova then Preg 1.4 Astra S reg 1.8 Toyota Celica Then my greatly missed baby (See attached image) Then the 57 plate lexus is 220d
  13. Has anyone that owns a 220d considered buying or brought and installed something like this; Tuning Module ??
  14. I completed a round trip from mansfield to bircham newton (just past kings lynn) approx 250miles and in my 220d i averaged 52.5 mpg Around town i average 38mpg
  15. Anyone know which wheels these are? ive looked but no joy Cheers
