  3. 54bhp cdi - turbo whistle?

    I've just bought a low mileage 54bhp cdi, and one thing i've noticed is there's a bit of a turbo whistle going on - from very low throttle and around town there's a whistle going on. Anyone else got this? Wasn't there on the 45bhp model I had before.

  10. Eco mode default setting

    I would like to have the Eco mode set to default off on start up, is this possible, since losing the fan belt, I'm assuming if Eco is off there is less strain on the system. how detrimental to fuel economy would this be.
