    Revo Booked!

    Rang up today, booked fro tomorrow.

    Revo stage one booked with forge 007p being fitted as well!
    I don't want to have expectations too high encase it doesn't deliver.

    I just had the 5 hour revo trial put on my car!! the trial only gives 80% of the stage 1 power, good god what a difference,

    5 mins of driving and my boost pipe came off, crapped myself thinking the engine had popped!! after putting pipe back on all is well again
    Now to find the money for the full map!! 4hours of trial left

    I cant comment on the Revo but my car had its Custom Code Phase 1 last week and its transformed it.

    Sooooo much more power, so more driveable, loads more grunt.

    Its just fantastic!, it'll make you smile...the difference on mine is night and day

    Is a custom code safe for when Audi is servicing your vehicle? I've heard that they "re-format" the ecu causing it to reset the remap? Is there any truth in this?

    I believe that is only with modern Audi's where they reflash the ecu to make sure it has the latest firmware.

    Rich, if you dont mind me asking, how much is you remap going to be?

    I was looking around, and revo are like 500, CC are 380 and Jabba are 300....

    Why is there such a big price difference?

    Revo should be 399 + VAT. Guess they dont feel the need to reduce their prices right now.

    I had the revo 5 hour trail put on my car last night and the Revo guy said he was going to a car show this weekend (cant remember what show it was) and he said Revo are giving discounts of up to 50% off re-maps!!

    Shame I cant remember what show he said he was going to
    I might call him and find out if any one is interested,
    Im gutted because im going away on holiday on Firday so im gonna miss out on the offer
    I have decided im defo getting the full map once the trial runs out

    Revo usally show at GTi Inters. My local Revo dealer says there deal was only going to be a 15% price drop......So halfprice map? Sounds like a fib if you ask me.

    May have misheard and it actually is 15% Im very tempted by either the Revo or Custom Code, we'll see which one of them manages to convince me!

    *Off topic* would I be able to get my car remapped if its parked on the club stand?*

    No harm in going to get the car mapped and coming back tbh. Otherwise us poor people looking to strip would be FUBAR'd

    it was 399 and 007 was 60.

    Well i've driven for abit after having it, not been out for a proper drive. OK yes it feels quicker, but not hugley?
    I think this may be me being use to motorbikes though and their mental acceloration speeds.

    Going to give it a few more drives though before i comment on it fully

    I would have thought you should notice the power increase immediately. Are you sure your car wasnt already mapped before?

    We took ours for a pre-remap service and found out it was already mapped.

    Haahaa ah yes that would have been the pub golf. Not sure whats more worrying- the lime green tenk top with matching visor or the total lack of reason for the event. At least it wasnt ballerinas this time! Are you a Swanage local?

    Whens the Inters then? Anyone going to the VAG track day at castle comb on the 25th july?
