Hey Kris
Boot lip spoiler arrived today - well actually neighbour took it in for me.
Looks good and the paint match looks fine (although it was a bit dark when I was checking so need to look again in the morning)- put it on loose to check the fit and it looks great!
My E63 is going in for detailing tomorrow or Wednesday so just deciding whether to fit it before or after...
Anyway thanks again for the heads up, I am sure it was the right decision and it will just give the rear the same slightly subtle aggressive stance as the front

At 475 all in for ecu and gearbox I would go for that. Would you mind letting me know who you were in touch with at GAD and I will get it booked . Cheers. Martin

Ah great, glad you seem pleased with it and hopefully the colour is all good
The only thing I've noticed is my boot opens slightly slower now... it was clearly a perfectly balanced boot design that I've tampered with by sticking on some plastic ha ha
I def do like the look of it now though. It's grown on me!!!

Darn looks like I made a mistake I'm afraid. I've got confused with a chat I was having with someone at a place called JRT tuning. That was where the 470 odd came from
Sorry Martin, me being a div. minus forum points for me

That's really not a problem. I did get quoted 400 from MSL for a generic map, or 500 for a live mapping session, but that's ecu only. I wonder how much difference there is having the box mapped ?

I had a custom map on my previous Leon cupra on a rolling road and it was definitely worth it. I think I'd prefer a specific re-map again
As for the gearbox, I've no idea... never had an auto before so I'd be interested to know myself? I'll have to defer to the experts out there?
By the way just googled jr tuning and seem to be getting mixed reviews, so I don't know if anyone has had any experience with them either?

I would agree with the GAD remap recommendation - just had my E350 remapped and the result is like someone has cut the weight of the car or given it an adrenaline injection!

You will have to de-badge now to balance the weight out with all that extra downforce

Too right, the difference between a good car and a great one...
