    Any way of telling if your car has been remapped?

    My S3 seems a lot quicker than my mates cvic type r, in every video on yourtube, the civic is quicker once it gets going....

    How long should this car take to go from 60-100mph in 6th gear? i suppose i could compare the times to someone with a standard car.

    Easiest way to tell is using VAG COM to log data - have you got VAG COM?

    Civic wont be far away from a mapped S3....you most likely wont be a lot quicker mind unless your running a big turbo.....

    my assumption is that your mate cant drive his type R like most type R owners cant seem to..... i have played with a few and when driven correctly they will only be 2 or 3 car lengths behind the S3 in most situations

    i drove his car full throttle, only changing the gear once it went into the red, my s3 is defo quicker, even he admits it, which is what makes me think it's remapped

    thanks

    you mean when thrashed to the redline. Just hit vtec y'all

    Turbo is a fair bit more audiable on a remapped car

    If you know anyone willing to let you have a drive of their mapped S3 you'd know for definite if yours is mapped or not. That's how i found out

    Just tell your mate in the CTR that your car is standard, and it will be even faster if you map it.
