    audi s3 8l 210bhp 1999 remapping

    hi i have had my s3 for six months now and was thinking about getting it remapped as i have heard it makes a big difference on here, the only problem is that the car has done 140 000 miles but runs fine with full service history would anyone recomend not getting it done because off the millage? all so who would you recomend for around the 300 pond price? thanks

    Has it had a clutch in it's life? If not then expect it to go after having it mapped. Also the coil packs are another common failure post remap.

    Don't let the milage put you off however - and for 300 it's well worth the money.

    Where abouts are you?

    For ~300 the Custom Code would be the way I would go....

    Everyone says this about mapped cars and clutch's go soon after - proves my point there is no such thing as a carefully driven 'chipped' car. Especially when I read those adverts about all the performance upgardes and then state carefullly driven in the same sentence.....give me a break !

    I would recommend R-Tech having been up there for a mates S3.
    Great service, got before and after rolling road print outs, geniuine advice and loads of tests and checks to ensure everything was in tact before the map! And the price - 250quid all in! Can't go better than that and I haven't heard a bad word against them!

    CC have a 30% discount, so you take their advertised website price, less 30% add vat and you have the correct price.
    confusing i know, but thats how they do it
