Hi everyone,

I'm Muhammed and from the title you can see that I'm from South Africa. I've been here for a little while absorbing all the information of this great institution but this is my first post.

I'm an automotive enthusiast that comes from an enthusiast family, men and ladies included, I spent my younger days doing a bit of kart racing but I didn't follow through with trying to go professional or anything, then eventually I heard the scream of a Yamaha Banshee which sucked me in to that world for a little while and when I came of age to get my drivers license I transitioned to performance vehicles.

Currently I've got 3 toys, an n54 powered bmw 135i, toyota conquest (corolla) with a 4age swap and lastly the latest addition to the family, a VW mk5 GTI.

I've successfully tuned the former 2 of the 3 vehicles above with results that I'm happy with and I can't wait to further my knowledge even more.

I was quite disappointed in realizing that a lot of reflash tuners around South Africa are actually using a file tuning service to tune vehicles but are giving the impression that they are tuning the vehicles themselves and thus don't really know what's going on when asked specific questions which led me here so that I could learn to do it myself and then take the skills I've gained here and open my own tuning shop once I've gained enough experience.

I've got some specific questions relating to tuning hardware and software that I'll ask in the relevant section. I would really appreciate any advice you could give.

Welcome along mate, sounds like you have some rad toys!
