    Newbie - Question about Remap

    Hi all new to the forum. Iv just bought an A3 1.8t sport. I'm wanting to get it remapped next wee but my timing belt and water pump were replaced 40k ago and pretty much 5 years to the day. I no its due a belt but will it be alright if I remap it then get the belt done say next month? I no it would be easier smarter to get the belt done first but my local revo dealer said he would do me a good deal if I get it done before next weekend. Thanks in advance.

    Should be fine, 60,000 is the recommended interval and a month or 2 delay shouldnt make any odds, best to benefit from the good price deal on remap and get belt done next month. When you do get the belt done make sure you also change the water pump, the tensioner AND the damper. many forget the damper to their cost. Enjoy your new car and welcome to A-SN.
