Re: PATROL 4.8 GRX Chip, map and freeflow

Hi Chris There are so many different schools of thought pro and against and I am more driver than crew. So if a modification makes a car more driveable then I am all for it. I have read so many posts about a chip with a free-flow system or just the exhaust and no chip and everyone is entitled to the...

Re: PATROL 4.8 GRX Chip, map and freeflow

I have to disagree… People take short cuts putting in Plug and Play Chips. The companies that are serious about performance tuning, don’t do plug and play, with 10 different programmes that you can then select from. I have recently referred a Forum member, who by the way also had their chip ‘ripped’...

Re: Opinion of what she is worth

I have been really keen to test consumption since I have had her charged. Keeping to the speed limit resulted in 17 l/100 tested over 110 km trip on N17 to Kinross Sasol. Then travelling at a brisk pace, around 140/160 over a further distance of 159 km consumption was 17.3 l/100 with an incredible w...
