    Yeah frm what i can gather car was re-mapped in 2004 but the company still advertising in audi driver which i just bought last week I really think it was ABT that was on the paperwork but i could be wrong............i havent driven a standard S3 and have only test driven mine but compared to my BMW it was definately quick, in fact was very surprised it was pulling rather quickly even in 6th gear!! only other car I've driven like that was an EVO 9

    Well clearly an S3 is not going to keep up with an EVO 9 if thats what your questioning but its the evo is the only other car I've driven that pulled in 6th gear...........to be fair though i havent driven many cars with 6 gears haha so maybe i should just shut up

    Evo scared **** out of me though

    You could do allot worse than go to APS, every time ive called theyve been helpful and generally get a good review on here allot of the old AMD staff are now there from what I gather

    Mine and a mates S3 will be visiting them shortly for a Remap and valve

    Hope this helps

    D

    However I do note you are "tup noorth" so would be a trek!

    All the standard S3's ive driven felt a bit crap to be honest,for a car with 225 bhp i was very disappointed.
    Which bmw did you have?

    I used to have a BMW 320 ci very pleasing to the eye but performance was pretty poor, but to be fair i'd just come back frm court after getting away without a ban so i was trying to calm down!!

    My S3 has already been re-mapped i just wanted to know if anyone knew about the company, ill check the paperwork when i get the car see where its been, the print out siad it had 265bhp

    Self discipline but that is easy for any one to say, when you have all that BHP at your disposal - proof is in the pudding.

    Scared of an S3?

    Nope.

    Its very very hard to mistreat the S3, the haldex and the fairly poor handling as standard keeps you the driver firmly grounded in reality.

    An E36 M3, or an Evo, then yeah, maybe.

    If your gonna do it, try and make sure it's not generic. Get it completely custom coded via rollers to get the full potential out of the car! :D
