    Talking Custom Code

    Just took my 2000 A3 1.8T into TSR Performance in Bridgwater today to have a Custom Code stage 1 remap. Mine is the AGU non DBW engine. They were very polite, showed me into the waiting room and got me a cup of tea. Only took them about 45 mins and with the 30% discount it worked out at 246, which i think is pretty reasonable. On the drive home i couldnt take the grin off my face, the difference was amasing! The car feels so much more alive now, with a steady curve of power that takes you all the way to the red line. feels alot more torquy aswell. I havnt had the car on a rolling road yet so unsure of exact figures, but they seemd to think it would be around the 190+ bhp mark Would highly recommend Custom code to anyone who is considering a remap. Any body in the Somerset area should aslo consider TSR, top blokes! My car is pretty much stock exept for the 18" RSTT replicas and a pipercross panel filter. also upgraded the diverter valve to the 710N. The car is going in tomorrow to have the weitech ultra GT 40mm kit fitted. cant wait!!

    I tried calling Storm dvelopments today, the guy on the phone was unsure the effect that a remap would have on my Auto tranny (increased heat, etc). I know most folks don't have an auto., but seeing no-one called me back on this (that's an e-mail, and two phone calls to different places with no concrete reply - which I take to be a bad sign) it would be good to get an answer on this...Anyone..?

    just going by what other peope on here have said, there is a guy who has a remaped a3/s3 at over 150K. There is no doubt that the remap will put marginaly more strain on parts and perhaps push already failing parts to go slightly quicker, but i have not heard of people having majour problems on higher milage cars following a remap.

    good job.
    always hard to decide who to use and remap choice.

    what's TSR like, were they working on anything tasty?

    where do you get your servicing etc.
