    I recommend a Revo remap and AMD,I was mapped closer to my home in the midlands but I know Shaun and his team do a good job

    so revo would be 1st choice then? any reason for this? car is total standard at mo, would i need a fmic or would standard be ok for now? what realistic bhp figures would i get with just a remap and air filter?

    Revo would be my choice and is my remap on my 02 S3 and it is like a wild horse
    FMIC is only good to sustain power,heatsoak causes the engine to overheat and the ECU reacts and limits power,change the DV when you have a remap and no need for an air filter but deffo a new DV.
    190 bhp Revo says but bear in mind the engine is no spring chicken so realistically expect a bit less

    yeah she done 114k now but full audi service history, engine is nice and quiet. i was wanting an open air filter for a bit more noise and maybe a bit of a wooosh sound too. the 190bhp at the fly or wheels?

    At flywheel. Id recomend r-tech, wouldn't you vorhees? Based on the reputation they have and how extensive there service is, a couple of fellas with a3's have been there recently and are incredibly happy! Bill at badger5 also carries out a thorough service, checking and logging the cars health. I know I'd want that rather than a hour load map and gone job.

    would deff recommend r-tech! its well worth the trip, and at the price they charge its my best bet, had my 1997 1.8t a3 mapped there last weekend and i made 192bhp +225lbs torque!!! so i would expect you to get around the same, although i do have a few supporting mods. but for £200 its a done deal!

    I've no idea where these places are tbh. I'm still standard but just based on the feed back on here, bill and r-tech are top dogs
