    Servicing on heavily modified S3?

    Should I trust the Audi dealership down the road? The previous owner said that they might reset the remap on the CPU? The last service was done 3 months ago when the car had 38K on it. It's down in the book as the Longlife service, does this mean the oil will have been changed?

    If I shouldn't take the car to an Audi dealership can someone recommend someone near by that specialises in this sort of car. I'm based in Stockport. Cheers

    I'd take it too awesome to. You'll get a better more thorough service for half the labour charge of a dealers.

    If your motor is quite old, do an oil change yourself.

    make sure you don't take your car to the dealers if you have fitted your own Ice as they remove it and put Audi ones in

    Hmm... Cheers Faud, that's litterally round the corner from me. Are you sure they can help with a heavily modified S3? :

    -Forged rods and low comp pistons with custom bearing shells
    -Compression lowering head gasket
    -Flowed head with bigger stainless inlet, inconnel exhaust valves and heavy duty valve springs.
    -4 branch ceramic coated exhaust manifold with GT28RS-71 turbo
    -Thermal inlet manifold gasket
    -Full 2 " exhaust with Bastuck single back box system.
    -Sports cat. EVOMS V-Flow intake, EVOMS' diverter valve
    -Sachs racing organic clutch
    -B&M Short Shift
    -Full VF Engineering engime mount kit.
    -Autometer Boost gauge in NS Performance pod
    -'Blue' Haldex 4 wheel drive controller
    -STaSIS Alcon 4 pot calibers with fully floating disc kit on the front and Alcon STaSIS Larger rear disc kit.
    -Koni Coilovers with Ronal RS6 Wheels


    They say performance specialist on the website but then just has (EcuTek, Revo) after it so maybe they only specialise in remaps and not much else?

    If anyone else could provide some more info or recommendations for these I'd appreciate it as it's far more convenient for me than Awsome.

    Cheers

    Only 360bhp and 380ft/lb but apparently it was built to run nigh on 500bhp by http://www.regal-auto.co.uk/ ......... not that I'd like to push it that far, I'm happier knowing the car can handle more. It's fast enough anyway.
