I'm now at km 15.500, with no electrical issues yet. The only thing that surprised me was that the lower piston rings were gone that early. Otherwise, nothing else to report.

Only 30 liters?
Damn... I thought it was 33. :D

Nobody really needs this fuel capacity on a TT. Maybe thats the reason why I never used the tank since I bought it 5 years ago.

Mads, they we already installed when I bought the TTR 2nd hand, but she does not have any noticable intake noise. So I would say that they don't increase noise level or performance.
