    AMD Group Buy

    Anyone interested inorganising a AMD group buy for the serial port tuning.

    There already is one for the TT so how about we do one for the S3.

    Its just a suggestion, cause I have no idea how to go about doing it.

    Re: AMD Group Buy

    How about getting a tuning group buy together for a3 1.8t owners. Can't get the port tuning on my 98 car
    Sure theres plenty of people who'd be interested in a discount tune up

    Re: AMD Group Buy

    Stormcatcher, for port tuning, they usually give u a general program. If you want the most gain, you are better off going to AMD n doing a rolling road tune. That,they will work out the best for your car rather than an individual chip

    but for hte ppl that can't reach AmD HQ, then the only way is to chip it or port it when its available

    Re: AMD Group Buy

    Who is quoting 300bhp??? on the S3?
    That figure would only be achieved on the standard turbo if the flywheel is changed for a lightened one, and then you will see a loss of torque, it's a trade off, I think it's very misleading to quote this without making that clear.

    Re: AMD Group Buy

    Just recieved the following info from AMD on prices and gains:

    1. Generic Program 595 + VAT, 260BHP, 270Lbs/ft torque
    2. Rolling Road Program 695 + VAT, 265/270BHP, 280/290 Lbs/ft torque

    Be interested to see what reduction we could get for group buy.

    Seriously doubt you can get a true 300bhp out of the standard turbo

    Getting confirmation really soon on GB hold tight guys

    please make sure if you want a One Click upgrade your car MUST be a Fly by wire throttle. (it won't work on cable)

    Take a look on the tt-forum.co.uk site under group buy's. It something like 360+vat for the generic and 460+Vat for the Rolling Road one click.

    Cheers

    Re: AMD Group Buy

    Can also do group buy for the following products:

    Brakes, (include Brembo, Porsche and Sportecs)
    One Clicks for Tdi Engines


    One Click is not ready for the S3 yet, but I believe they will be ready when this GB is completed. I will keep you all update in regards to the S3/TT One Click units

    Basically just post whatever you want, I will obtain a price for it.

    Re: AMD Group Buy

    Just phoned AmD and booked myself in a for a normal remap. They are honoring the Group buy price so its still all good.

    Not really that bothered about switching back to stock and I probably wouldn't bother anyway.

    Come on 8th April!

    Re: AMD Group Buy

    Yeh true, for a generic remap, the actually chip is like a piggy back chip meaning, you can take it out (with some skill n care) and plug the standard one back in.
