    Yeah good to meet you all gents.

    Was a cracking day, especially for us standard boys! LOL

    Off to drink a few/ several beers now! Have a good one and see you on the other side!

    And damn it was cold today! Even 10 coffees didn't thaw me out!

    Aye It was a good day all round, shame about the cold though, it was biting!

    Cheers Gary for sorting the order of the day, i hope the books balanced for ya

    Jamie, jamie, jamie... I wondered that myself, Trouble was my phone was out of charge, so i couldnt even ring Lee to ring you.. Aside from pulling over to give you a good shake, I thought i'd put middlesborough in sat nav to check you'd be ok on the M621 and thought "ah well, at least he can follow it back onto the A1" lol!!

    Haha, cool how you ended up back with Lee though!

    That M3 on the motorway.... lol

    Anyway, nice to see ya'll again, and also to meet Eagle79 and Wes too

    Im off to bed now with a hot water bottle

    had a great day out although it was bloody cold even with a jacket and gloves on!

    nice to see everyone run their cars although it was sad to see no other non S3 there, i was the only one without the S3 badge on the back!

    Happy with 230bhp really, could spend more money on the A3 to get more power but i am going to put the money into my Polo G40, cheaper to get more power out of that and its also more fun as its bloody dangerous (170bhp / 830kgs)!!!!!

    Some pic's from Mark (Zboyd with the Seat on the boootiful titanium BBS CK's.... I want those wheels!)

    Also, the GTi guys are having a healthy debate about the numbers......

    Yeah i can't believe my car didn't make that stupid noise yesterday at Prosport, it did though on the way home pulling away from some lights...... Not as worried now as perhaps its been dampened enough to not be noticed outside.

    Just read the GTi forum and it is funny, one high result and the whole day is ruined! LOL Wonder if its because he got knocked off the top?.... Maybe i'm wrong

    Happy with mine though, 291BHP and 295ibft (400Nm).

    Mitch i'm still smiling for you mate! 304BHP! ha ha ha ha

    Think i'm now afetr seein people's car going to to the following!

    Change the badges
    EVOMS intake
    Lower springs (Jamie yours looks sweet)
    Eventually new downpipe to totally free up system
    Lamin x

    and i'm still toying with painting the wheels black.....

    It was rather strange to see a simple change in the Revo timings boost the power from a figure of 325 to 370 bhp!! Talk about www.iwantoneofthose.com

    It certainly raised an eyebrow or two.

    DSG perhaps, who knows... Its a shame really as now we all are in doubt as to the accuracy of our results...

    Aye Ben that wasnt aimed at anybody inparticular mate, it just seemed that the majority (95-99%) of them left before we were all done which some might think was a bit off form...

    I know some guys had to get back for one reason or another (work etc). But yeah I see where you are coming from mate. I always like to stay as long as I can, as I like to see what others make (fig wise)..

    Dude you must be the happiest man on the planet with 370bhp... if I was in your shoes i'd never put my car on rollers again then you can honestly answer the question,
    "what's she putting out?"
    With
    "THREE SEVEN ZERRRRROOOOOOOOOOO BEATCH!"


    Seriously though, what are your thoughts on the leap in the numbers on your car mate?

    Ha ha LMFAO

    To be honest, I would be happy with 330bhp and it did run that on my earlier run, but didn't give a torque reading so had to settle for the 325bhp print out..
    The reason for putting it on again later, was to see what she made when run on the same Revo settings as Luca's (the Red ED30), so to compare..
    Needless to say I have left it on them settings and it does pull A LOT better top end, plus the power and torque curve was pretty much perfect in my eyes... But 373bhp, er... I think not!

    Ben, would it be worth doing the next RR on those settings, to see if anything changes?? If it still gives 370 odd then....??

    I mean, your car does pull like a train mate, on the way down there, i pulled over to let you past, i was like at the pace of your car!

    Will get it on a RR again soon mate, definately and will use those settings. But can't see how anywhere near 373 would be possible (especially on stock turbo and fuel pump).
    It's just all a bit strange.. lol

    What settings did you use to see those figures?

    I wouldn't worry about the dip mate.
    Mine has one similar at about 5k rpm that wasn#t present when on the rollers at the Regal day - mine is flat lined for 500rpm which you would deffo feel on the road, so I'm guessing it is a trait of the rolling road or maybe the haldex trying to fight the road.....

    I'm not so sure on this count.

    Every S3 that went on had a dip somewhere in it's chart, yet the cars were running smoothly. Peter did say it could be related to the haldex.

    Leon - at the regal day when magnus's car had the dreaded misfire trait - trust me, you knew when the problem was there. I'd say both yours and mine were running smoothly right through fella.

    I've been on 4 different RRs and never seen a dip in my "curves" anywhere - and I have the same Haldex as you lot.
    I'm with Block here - a funny dip like that cannot be normal.

    Well, my car didn't have a dip at Regals RR, doesn't drive like it has a 500rpm flat spot and doesn't make any odd noises so I'm inclined to think it's the road and not the car in this case.
    As far as I was aware, everyone who has had the issue can feel it and hear it..... or is that not the case?

    My car will hopefully be back on Regals RR soon, so we'll see what happens there I guess.

    Yeah im with you Jamie! Simply because im having a **** day, and im not letting it get any ****ter!!

    Im sure had there been a misfire or anything else untoward the chaps at prosport would have noticed? They were keeping a very close eye on every run from what i saw...

    From what I've seen YOU'D notice - when it happened at the Regal day the car, was coughing and kicking black smoke out the back but just in the top end of the rev range - wasn't pretty (sorry magnus!).

    I'm not worried
    In fact, your post over on s3-talk.com has got me counting my savings... I may very well join you..
