Have now put 1300 ish miles on my car. We're a Revo dealer at work so mapped it today (Revo Stage 1). After reading mixed reviews about mapping this engine first impressions really are 'night and day'. Pulls far harder and really does make it feel like it's quite tame before the map. Only done a few miles since it's been done but can't wait to take it out for a decent drive. Will also be adding the S Tronic box Revo map when it's released. Going to be adding a panel filter also.
Kev at Revo sent us over the latest versions and gave us some recommended settings which seem to be awesome. Went out on the road test and the data the Revo system gives you from the car is seriously impressive.
Dan set up Vagcom afterwards and 0-60 figures are 4.9 seconds, this is a system that starts timing as soon as the car starts moving so I guess doesn't count driver reaction times if that matters to anyone.
Have had some KW S3 8P lowering springs sat on a shelf for about a year leftover from my last S3. Dan our tech at work went to fit them today and the springs that come on the car looked a fair bit shorter than the KWs. Seems as though the car is running 10mm less than stock S3. Anyone else come up against this? It's a black edition. It was a cancelled order so haven't looked if there are any options on the suspension from the factory.
We're based in Dorset and if you come to us for a map, if you take it up the road and you're not impressed we'll delete the map and give you your money back. It's awesome.
