It's back! with BBR Supercharger.
Sep 16 2011
I picked up my car tonight from Neil at BBR. The drive home was terrible, far too much traffic!
Neil talked me through the conversion before I left and I'm pleased with the work done. It's always a worry when you drop your car off for work to be carried out but I'm happy to say it was all good.
Neil said the car can run on 95 or 98 (98 only if doing track days). I filled up and will monitor fuel consumption over the coming months.
So, the drive home.
When I got the chance to ease on it was fantastic. Most of the drive home was dual carriageways but I had to check more than once that I was in 6th gear and not 4th. The engine revs freely and pulls well and you do believe your in a lower gear.
On the single carriageway sections when I had the chance to overtake it was a breeze. The car accelerates effortlessly and the smile on your face gets bigger and bigger. As people have said before, It behaves exactly as standard just with more oomph. Smooth acceleration, no engine check lights, no dramas.
Unfortunatley I've had things to do this evening so had to park it up and leave it
It's early days and I can't wait to spend more time driving it! I'm hoping to attend Billing this weekend, say hi if you see a grey 3.5 with BBR stickers/flyers on it.
