Mods

Hi Phil

This seems a pretty quiet site (just look at the dates):(.

I've got a 112CDi and am interested in "chipping" the beast. Mind you the standard performance ain't bad!:)

Service manuals seem to be unprocurable for these vehicles. Have you seen any sourcces for current models?

Regards

Rob

I am thinking about having Superchips mod my van, but I would prefer to talk to someone who has had it done first.

I have a big list of things that I would like to add or modify.

What tuning/mods are you intending

Great vehicle my only real gripe is road noise, what tyres/wheels are you using and is yours noisy

Hi,
I agree the road noise is loud!

I am about to sound proof the rear arches to try and deaden it a bit, I will let you know the results.

My v has got s-class 18 inch alloys (5 spoke) with Avon zz3 225 40 18 tyres. They are a soft compound so they do lower the noise level, but not enough.

I am looking at fitting a boost pack from east coast racing which is simular to super chipping.

I have also replaced all the brakes and discs.

I am try to find a stainless exhaust system ( just for looks really)

I am also after a full stainless A bar, the only ones I can find in the UK are the short ones.

Hi,

As I understand it S-class wheels have the right offset. that sais they are very wide I got my tyre size wrong on the last post, I have 245 40 18 tyres.

Here is a link to some s-class wheels available on ebay right now!

there is a picture of them on a vito.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2432330301&category=28648

I will post a couple of pictures of my v220 in the gallery.

Is the a bar a full size bar, i.e. does it reach the bonnet ?

Hi Dave

To be honest Dave I would not want to insult you, really I want a bigger A bar so if I buy a small (city bar) one it would have to be cheap!

would you take £130 for it ?
