    Facelift S3 remap issues?

    Hi all,

    Going to bite the bullet and get a GIAC remap on my facelift S3, might even go for a miltek exhaust too but not definite on that yet, has anyone had any problems after having their car remapped?

    I think most of the map companies have sussed the issue with the mis-fire on the new 2.0TSI unit. But yeah, prior to that it was cured by fitting an uprated down pipe in all cases I heard about.

    I had mine remapped with GIAC at 400 miles and no issues at all, recently added Milltek and Intake and again no issues.
