    Bin the 57i induction kit. Remaps are a plenty for the S3 and it all comes down to personal choice. Do a bit of searching on here and see other people's experiences....

    Also consider getting a REVO trial if there is a dealer in your area...

    Agree on the induction kit.

    If you get a revo trial, it means you can't get it mapped by anyone else through the obd and apparently when the trial ends it makes your car worse than it was before to make you think the map is better than it is.

    That is complete an utter rubbish I am afraid... any tuner with decent mapping tools can overwrite a revo trial...

    It doesn't make it worse unless you are comparing it to the actual remap... it is still revo code when it reverts to normal but is at OEM settings... OEM boost, OEM timing, OEM fuelling

    If you have been driving a remapped car then got into a std one again you would think it was worse too...
