    For this 100-200 kph do you sit at 100kph then go WOT and time the segment
    or

    Start at a lower speed go WOT and start the clock as you pass 100kph for the segment?

    Got it, the app starts the timer automatically once 100 km/h is passed. With the M6, I put it in 3rd gear and WOT from around 90km/h.

    A few little winter treats for the car...

    I have sourced facelift fully LED tailights and the facelift boot lid. The boot lid will be painted in the month.
    Will look pretty much like this when done:


    Some H&R lowering springs to be fitted too:


    Contemplating getting it re-mapped in conjunction with a intake, should take it to around 550bhp & 560nm
