Finally had the S3 remapped last weekend and took it on a long test drive to Whitley Bay for a stag do lol.
It's amazing how different the car feels. Much better throttle response, less lag and pulls better in every gear (especially 1st, 2nd and 3rd).
I'm so glad I bought the S3 and didn't go for my original choice of Focus RS. The quality of everything about the car is excellent (as you all know).
Just thought i'd share, thanks!
