Just packed my old 8L off to Hadwins Approved down in Cumbria, and they kindly delivered me a shiny 8P (black with black grill) in return.
Been looking for AGES, and finally found a low mileage car, great condition, good kit, right price etc. I'm over the moon with the difference between tired little 8L S3 and new, tight, rumbly 8P S3.
Now on to the fun stuff:
N8 - I'll be picking your brains about wheels soon enough, but not doing anything drastic... probably just some nice 19s, Speedlines maybe, or BBS CKs
NHN - the car has NAV, GSM in the arm rest, bluetooth... all the standard stuff too. What'll it take/cost to get the RNS-E mk2 with VIM TV, and maybe an Ipod connection somewhere?
Also, I'll be getting a remap and was just after a bit of feedback. Has anyone tried more than one company? Or can anyone say that one is truly better than another? I was thinking REVO as the obvious option, but the garage a lot of my mates use for mods is a CustomCode code agent. Not many of them have had the remap, and none have an S3, so can't really use their testimonials as anything to base my decision on. I'm not going to be going big turbo, or anything extreme/expensive, just after a standard generic remap.
