Could anyone with switchable maps tell me what the advantages of them are and whether and when they use the switchability. I am about to get my S3 remapped and was going to go with APR as then I can switch maps (plus the map is relatively smooth I believe). I am now having second thoughts as to get the standard and chipped optimax programs will cost 474 (plus V.A.T.) and when I asked Awesome about what diagnostics they run pre remap to make sure the car is OK they told me they would charge another 45 (plus V.A.T) for a full check. A bit miffed about this as most tuners seem to offer some sort of car health check prior to mapping. I appreciate this may just be for peace of mind, but to be honest that is what I'm after.
So would I use a switchable map (car is out of warranty so no issues there).
