    Audi Dealer Tuning?

    Hi guys hope that i'm not treading on already covered ground, but I have a question about Audi Stealers. I spoke to a friend who used to have an S3 and said that back in the mid 2000's his S3 had been re-mapped by the dealers to 225BHP because Audi were offering to do it if you bought a 210BHP S3. Firstly is this true? Secondly do the official Dealers actually offer Remaps and tuning and is it any good? Once again i'm sorry if this has been covered before but I couldn't find it anywhere!

    Thanks for the Help and replys in advance.

    I would just go to a local tuner who knows his stuff,if they did offer remaps you would pay through the nose for it I'm sure.

    the only time i have ever herd of this is when somebody that works at the dealers does remapping as a side job and they just pocket the extra cash that you pay for the map, a ford garage does it near to where i live.

    My local dealer offers mapping, but it literally subbed out, you book your car in, leave it with the dealer, during the day a man in a van turns up, maps your car and leaves!! The dealer adds 15% for the privilege!! They are just jumping on the band wagon!

    I wouldn't be getting your car mapped at anywhere that doesn't have a dyno... these cars are old and 'generic' maps that are flashed on without checking for things like vac/boost leaks, timing pull and oil in the charge systems is a fast track to engine failure IMO...

    Almost every car I have seen recently has an issue of some sort... vac leaks, excessive timing pull due to engine wear/haevy breating through PCV and/or turbo oil seals and other dodgy components... most of the cheap maps have crap fuelling and all the boost...

    Yes I am a tad biased due to my weekend hobby but I see this stuff first hand and what looks like a healthy car on the outside nearly always isn't...
