Good choice mate I was very impressed with their service and still loving the upgrades

Just try and resist the new suspension upgrades...

got mine done last week...the stage 1 is insane!!! i haven't tried the launch control yet. tbh don't know if i ever will but its good to know its there just incase

with regards to the gearbox software upgrade the car feels very composed, more like a proper auto. it changes gears smoothly and alot quicker than i remember and non of the kangaroo or mismatch gear selections i used to get at lights, roundabouts etc.

Popped into Litchfield's on Friday just for a look at the Big Brake Kit and the TSW's, and left with a Stage 1 and Gearbox software. I only had the software as it wasn't booked in (for the Y-Pipe) and its still a major improvement, you wouldn't think another 70 BHP would make that much difference but it sure does - god knows what a stage 4 or 5 is like! The gearbox software is a real winner, a big, big improvement, worth every penny.

Power wise, it just seems to pull so much harder and the gear changes are smoother. Did 200 miles today and not once did I get caught out at low speeds from 2nd to 1st. Glad I decided not to spend £20k upgrading from an 09 to 11 plate.

Stage 1 is a superb upgrade, coupled with new gearbox software, had mine done in December and love it- if you're anything like me, I bet you'll be craving more power after driving it for a while though

I'm also off to Litchfields on Saturday for the gearbox software along with a service and tweak...

Looking forward to experiencing the difference

All sounds great fellas. I think ive deceided to keep my 10 car, instead of going for an 11 car, and will be going for a stage 2 and gearbox software. It sounds like these mods make all the difference, to an already very fast car ?. Keep the comments coming chaps, regards, SIMON.

OP - good choice. Huge difference - you'll understand more the "too fast for the roads" comments better too.

Has anyone had any bad experiences with the stage one? I've got the y pipe so it's a pretty cheap hp really. I'll probably go down this route just for the hell of it although I've only done 200 miles in it since I've had it and half of that was bringing it home.

I had my focus rs mountuned and it made a huge difference to the car so it sounds like this may be fun to do as well.
