    I dont where abouts you are but Awesome GTI offer trailed remaps in manchester.

    We had a trial on our LCR and it defo persuaded us to get a proper one done!

    But beware - some companies intentionally slow the car with the map after the trial has run to make the difference feel hugeeee!

    Any REVO dealer will do it.

    But make sure you have the money handy though, my `trial` lasted about 10mins and went back for the full program, which is slightly better again than the `trial`map.
    Its that good.

    Good luck

    The Stage 1 remap on the S3 is a fantastic `bang for buck` mod.

    This is a myth - no company could get away with doing that.

    The difference some people feel will be the car re-adpating fueling, timing etc after returning to the standard map, but it is certainly not a 'slow' map.

    Beat me to it.

    Once the trial has run out and it reverts all of the baseline adaption would have been lost and so the learning process starts again.

    Doesn't take that long for it to relearn it all though.

    Cheer Cootie.. Just searched net and there no nearest superchip dealer within 50miles to me...

    Thats a good deal they got going though. 7 Days plenty of time.. But judging by Paul's experience probs won't need that long to make up mind.

    Will stick with a TT Shop they in Bedford nearby.

    They do next day delivery by mail if you contact Superchips directly. I also founf their customer service was superb if that influences you - couldn't be more helpful.

    I came very close to going for Superchips Bluefin, reputation, DIY install, convenience, price etc are excellent on paper.

    BUT, (big but) from the extenive swotting up I did, a lot of it right here on AS.net, there are some questions regarding the gains you get (or not as the case maybe) from the Bluefin map for the S3.

    To avoid going over too much old ground, do a forum search and you can decide from there.
    I dont have 1st hand experince with bluefin so will stop short of criticising it outright.

    Just to help you in the meantime, I dont recall anyone remapping an S3 with REVO or GIAC and not being very happy.
    Not so for Bluefin, although this does seem perculiar to the S3 only.

    I had REVO previously and as my GIAC dealer is a 3hr drive away it had to be REVO.
    Never looked back, except at people Ive just overtaken !!

    cheers
    Paul

    Yeah Paul i remember the issue with Bluefin... They were giving out WAY less figures then what they should have.
    Majority of the guys here are all on REVO or GIAC and have never had issues or looked back on it so defo would go down that path... just a matter of getting that trail see how i like it and taking the plunge if needs be.
