I purchased a new V50R (expect delivery around June 15th) and have a question about performing the following MOD's. To wait or not to wait??<p>BSR Opti-Flow and BSR Stage 1:<p>1.) Perform mods once I my car is delivered. Bad idea?<p>2.) Wait until car is broken in ~3000 miles, monitor for CEL's or any other issues and once complete perform the mods. Best solution? <p>I know I should probably do #2 but it's really going to be hard to wait <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> especially since I live in Japan and the only way to get those break-in miles completed will be to purposfully drive as much as possible <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> otherwise I'll waiting about six months <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Any advice or suggestions welcome. <p>Thanks,<br>Scott

Re: Mod Question on new V50? (V50_T5)

I already have the parts, so it makes it even more tempting to just put them on once I receive the car. Guess I qualify as impatient as well <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Mod Question on new V50? (slrising)

I <B>know </B> the feeling... I waited but after car being 6 days old, I couldn't wait any longer! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>but , to answer your question. A "break in " period definately doesn't hurt. I went straight to the mods and I'm going on 4 years /70,000 miles... don't think skipping the break in hurts either (plus ... you can sleep better once all those mods are on the car) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Thanks for the feedback. I guess I'll try to wait it out as much as I can <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> My car should be loaded (can't verify it yet) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> on the Asian King now and on its way <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> only about two more months to wait. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">
