    I live near Dartford...
    not sure at all with AMD, although i know a few of the guys here go to the RR there.

    Have heard good reviews on Shark performance but i dont think they are anywhere near us.

    as far as i know a remap will not really damage a car, just highlight any small issues you had. Of course that does also depend on how you drive it after remapping it.

    driving it gently will be high unlikely after a remap.

    LOL!
    i would want to remap just so its quicker on acceleration... does not mean i would be ripping it everywhere i go. its more for responsive throttle for me.
    i know some 'boys' that want to just race in them... but then again they buy S3's

    yeah i know dude. that is soley what i want a remap for just to get more torque and that beautiful train pull feeling. it should feel so quick as a stage 1 remap takes it to about 187bhp i believe? and also give us around the 400lb torque.

    I know quite a few people who have been REVO'd at AMD Thurrock/Essex. I always hear very good feedback about the service they offer.

    I was originally looking at a place called www.more-bhp.com as I also live near you but the price quoted is more if they come down to you. But then a mate used this guy www.airbagwarninglight.co.uk and had a campervan diesel and a Mercedes c class both done by him and £140 each. My mate said the campervan struggled to pull 70mph before and now goes like a rocket with no smoke or problems. I spoke to this guy and he reckons the a3 140 has the biggest change in driving as any diesel that he does. The bhp is not as much as morebhp but the important thing is torque and thats about 296 lb or close to 400nm which is about what my 5.0gt Mustang had. I think if you go too mad it will be wheelspinning all over the place.

    Also considering a remap. I do have AMD Amersham just up the road so may pop and speak to them.
    Does anyone have any recommendations for the remaps like the bluefins that can be taken off easily by a hand held device? What other companies do this type of remap. I Want to be able to remove the map when the car goes back to Audi for any service work etc.

    Also is there any way of them scanning the car to see if you have put a remap on there and possibly voiding the warranty?

    Any help suggestions and prices appreciated

    I would be wary of any aggressive remap on a 140bhp the fuel pump isn't designed for anything more powerful than the bluefin that's why it's a little less powerful than some of the upgrades that other tuners offer. Pretty sure the AMD one would be similar but you need the warranty.

    That's the reason I thought about bluefin. I like the idea of being able to take it off and back to standard to save from causing any serious damage. I'm aware of the clutches on S3s being like chocolate teapots is it like wise for the A3s with more torque. Wish I bought a 170 now!

    Does anyone know any other solutions or know any products like the bluefin that are able to be removed easily?

    I've got the Alientech Powergate box on which I have my standard map, and two others. I'm fairly sure its exactly the same as the Bluefin albeit with a different colour. The Alientech box is widely used as its reliable and provides excellent vehicle coverage

    Your turbo was most likely on its last legs and the extra pressure put upon it by the remap finished it off

    Turbo's go in standard or remapped form; it really is luck of the draw sadly. I have a mate who has a MK4 Golf 150 TDI and he's done 145K miles, 80K of them remapped and he's on the original turbo still!

    Got mine re-mapped, got a eco re-map by falcon performance in middlesbrough. I went for this over one of the aggressive re-maps that people do for a few reasons, reliability, extra mpg and more torque at bottom end. I believe its running at 170 or just over, i've side by side my mates 170 quattro a3, and its exactly the same. Only advice i would give is to change the oil more regulary, ll oil every 5k for me.

    So how does it perform now on average MPG and do you still get a lag when you try to boot it below 2k RPM? sounds interesting this

    Its getting around 3-4 mpg more, no lag below 2k just very smooooth! So smooth and no lag it accually felt slower at first, but put it up against a 170 quattro and its exactly the same maybe a small amount quicker.

    I notice lag on hot days only. On an average day it goes like a dream.

    I like the sound of the eco-map... exactly what i want... the power on the lower end so no lag and also better fuel consumption.
    Anywhere down south i could get this done?
    Also how much did it set you back?

    I just had my BKD (04 engine) 140 TDI serviced and remapped by Simon @ AMD Woking and I am chuffed with the results. Car feels completely different through the gears.. even first feels a little better (it's still a diesel so let's not get carried away). He reckons it's at about 180-190 bhp now with about 300 torque. AND it was only £290 quid.
