    I keep hearing good things about MRC. Now you need suspension, brakes, arbs, etc, etc, etc.....

    If you haven't done it already, I'd suggest sorting out the suspension and alignment (rear-tie arms needed). The standard brakes aren't that much worse than a big brake kit, they're just more prone to fade if you're really gunning it.

    Just out of curiosity - what was the process for the generic map?

    Cheers,

    the process involved having the diverter valve checked with a meter checked over all the hoses to make sure they where ok then he plugged in some sort of laptop and checked the car for any fault codes.then with his laptop still plugged into the car we took the car out for a series of runs where he told me to take the car up six thousand revs through the gears all the time he was scanning his laptop when we got back from our first run he took the windscreen wipers off removed the plastic trim and did some work underneath ? then we went back out same as before laptop connected.but this time i could tell he was making changes to the way the car was running.all the while asking me what i thought by the time we got back to the garage the car felt absolutely awesome

    sound like a fairly custom generic map to me! Some companies generic map involve whacking in a new chip and thats the end of it... no test runs with the laptop plugged in and no tweaks..... Little things like that that make MRC stand out from other companies...... I had the S4 mapped there..... Well chuffed
    Cheers.

    I had mine done there last year, sounds like he did the same to mine, but mine was a 'custom' remap and cost me £500, still worth every penny, as the car is 10x better to drive now

    I still need to do my suspension and brakes

    Just Booked my S3 to have a custom remap in with MRC as AMD messed me round, was meant to travel up from Wales and had a letter from them on the day my appointment was saying it was cancelled, lucky i was snowed in and couldnt make it otherwise would have been outside waiting! Tried phoning and everything! No joy! Heard good things about MRC, hopefully i dont have the same problem!
