    Excellent choice on the colour.

    new toys this week!
    Milltek non res special tips cat back
    Evolve Remap!

    Anyone know if my car goes into Audi for spare key recode after i have mapped it, will they detect it? or will they do any sort of software update. Bear in mind i have had the car 2 weeks or so, from Audi. Evolve said to wait until its back from Audi then do the map... i'm still waiting for the spare key from Audi. been 2 weeks, plus they need to sort out my tracking at the same time.

    no charge, the spare was broken when i picked up the car, so they are sorting one out on the house, and so they should, but taking their time in doing so! demand one from your dealer!
