Hi,

I have read your forum a lot in the past few months, and decided to register because i couldn`t see some pictures and videos here in the forum...

I Have a 99 Seat Cordoba STW 1,9 TDI. So far i have done:
- Full front bumber block, only hole for the intercooler which you need! I have tested
- EGR delete
- Higher tire pressures
- Narrower tires
- Hypermiling driving tecniques, and samller mods.
- And last night I put on new rear wheel skirts

So far my best tank have been 3,8l/100 km on dry roads, but now in the winter best have been 4,2 but its going down. My target goal is to reach 3.5 before the summer.

Next mod will be flat engine undertray....
