    Some good news and some bad news

    Our S3 went into RK Engineering today for an oil&filter and a new thermostat. This has fixed the dodgy temperature reading we'd been getting since getting the car a couple of weeks back.

    Simon did the work and took it for a quick test drive after checking for fault codes (none found) :D

    We had planned a remap at some point but Si told us the bad news when he got back.

    "The car won't be any quicker after a remap"

    That was the bad news.

    The good news was, the car already has a remap

    So, thats saved us around 300+ to spend on improved handling which will probably go on suspension as we found 2 broken rear Eibachs while we were there lol.

    So, all in all a good day.

    Also, a mate of ours has just recently got a similar S3 which looks like it might be remapped too as we couldnt separate them in performance earlier tonight.

    Moral of the story, before booking a remap, check if you already have one, im guessing its pretty common to have them without knowing.

    Massive thanks to Simon down at RK Engineering. If anyone in the SW needs a VAG specialist, he came recommended and hasnt disappointed

    Good news.

    Where are RK? I've checked their website and there is no physical address on it? Got a mate looking for a decent place in the SW to service his G/F's TT.

    It's good news you haven't got to fork out for a remap, though I think I'd be a bit gutted booking in for a remap to be told it's already been done...'no more power'

    Yeh, we didnt know how to feel at first about being told we couldnt make it faster with a remap. Shame but im sure we can find some other goodies to compensate for our loss :D

    Happy days, however you must be feeling the car is still slow if you were after a remap??

    How about a stage 2

    Never really thought it was slow but who wouldnt want more power for not alot of cash. Shame it's not gonna be a cheap option for that extra bhp, so will probably concentrate on handling now.
