Haven't had a chance but will go out tomorrow and give it a try. Will be the first time I have run it in cold air since the downpipes and intercooler went on so should hopefully be noticeable

Noticed it takes a extra 1/2 mile for the JB4 to flash my hazards to let me know its at temperature.

I notice the lack of traction, even in the dry at 5.5 C degrees.
TC light flashing like a christmas tree pulling away from moderate throttle input

flew back into Gatwick last night after a week in a Golf 1.4TSi hire car (replacing the 72bhp Citroen C-Elysee that they tried to give us).

Let's just say I enjoyed the drive back with no traffic around and nice cold air for the 335d to inhale
