    Maybe it's just me, but the std 300bhp and 700nm of torque are pretty good imo, she always pulled well for the size of car in any gear pretty much and not slow by any means, std 0-60 times are 5.9 secs

    Post remap, better again and yes, probably more so lower end and mid range noticeably. I still haven't really covered any decent mileages to speak of.

    Remap done 14.02.2020 at 46,501 miles and as of today ( having just checked the app ) I'm at 48,347 miles so 1846 miles covered and most of that, all start / stop around town. I'd say I'm looking at around an extra 3-4 mpg so far, as far as I can tell, but really want some longer runs thrown into the mix to be sure.

    Sorry, yeah the standard car is more than quick enough for me, just feels like a bit of lag at low speeds if want to nip out of roundabout etc, but that could just be my driving style or not planting right foot hard enough.

    Its cleaned up the power band of my XF massively! it just keeps pulling and pulling now when needed, and yes there is an improvement in MPG, especially on a motorway journey its probably 2MPG higher (calculated between fill ups)

    Jeeesh, no hiding money eh Andrew, I'm guessing you paid many pennies for that size of Sonax Full effect?

    It should definitely see you right though to be fair.

    A good wheel brush is a must, although personally I use a 2" paintbrush, gets into all the nooks and crannies.

    I slightly dampen the wheel and apply Sonax fairly well, ensuring coverage of calipers etc and then the paintbrush comes into play. I use hot / warm water and a little fairy liquid on the brush and it helps to degrease, spread the Sonax a little farther.

    You'll see the Sonax turn bright red as it liquifies the brake dust etc.

    Work away, doing your thing and then rinse for sparkly clean wheels.

    You have many many spokes with those Kasuga's Andrew, beautiful wheel but it'll add to your cleaning time mate, looking forward to your results and your thoughts
