jssaab Did you use only NGK BCPRES7 Plugs ( no others will work correctly) and a REAL not chinese knock off DI cassette .. and 30 pinks* after jsut starting a car under light load does not sound to me to be an issue, what is it at WOT ( under boost) is a major concern

Drew in Houston Yeah? That's a new one for me. At first I thought it was a typo, but it was in the title as well as the body, and then the OP said Estate, so I figured it might be some new thing in Europe somewhere lol. Hmm.

So pinging under light load. Swap in a known good ignition cassette, see if that changes anything. Either it's real or it's not. OP, can you hear or feel affects of actual pinging or are you thinking there's pinging based-upon SID readings only?
