    thats rubbish.
    i have the same car with the same engine
    remapped by APR SPORT in milton keynes.
    the ECU needs to come out and connected
    to a laptop for software to be loaded.

    A3's with Bosch MED9.1 ECUs can be remapped via OBD port

    A3's with Bosch MED17 ECUs have TriCore TC-series processors, and cannot be flashed via the OBD port. The ECUs have to be removed from the security cages (security bolts broken, new ones required), covers carefully opened (they are sealed via a strong adhesive) and then bench flashed.

    The change came about roughly from some 2011 cars.....

    The more mainstream tuners have the facilities to do this.

    S3 2.0 TFSI remained with MED9.1 so can be remapped via OBD port.

    I don't see what the issue is here. If it has security on it then you can get down to a reputable tuner... like superchips or APR and they will unlock it so they can re-flash it. It's a few pounds extra but that's it.

    The latest 1.8 TFSI's use a Siemens ECU which cannot yet be remapped at all.

    Earlier use MED17 which needs removal.

    All 8P S3's use MED9.1 which can be done over OBD.

    Hope this clarifies.
