    APR re-mapping at Awesome GTI

    This week i was going to get my S3 re-mapped, (and probably still will), at Awsesome GTI, Manchester. But over on the RS246 forum, many are advising against using the APR software. Has any one hand any problems with a APR re-map? or would strongly advise for/against having a APR re-map? Is there a better alternative in the North West?

    go to wayne at Chip Wizard J24 M62. His previous job was programming all the Porsche Carrera Cup race cars. Its a custom map too not a generic one.

    I'd try Jabba over AmD any day. Better map, better service. MRC are flat out these days so you'll be lucky to get in just now.
