    Hi, I had my S3 mapped a while ago with a Revo map. It's been a bit intermittant with power and eventually had it's MAF replaced which seemed to sort it out, but it still felt a bit down on power. Occasionally I'd get a spike of power out of nowhere which would confuse me...

    So not feeling like it was 100% right I took it to a rolling road which measured it at 229BHP and they said it was running lean.

    So I drove home and the car felt odd..... no power, no boost. I booked it back into the revo dealer and they've spent a day stripping it down to find a fault. Eventually they've found the Revo has gone into Valet Mode.

    Has anyone heard of this ? Could it have been overboosting on the RR and it triggered it to go into this mode ?

    Should I get the Revo map removed and try something else ? (I'm planning on seeing how it goes and if it's not perfect asking for my money back)

    Valet mode?

    a revo dealer said it had gone into valet mode?

    didn't they offer any way of actually fixing it?

    They didn't leave it like that. :)

    They've reset the map and it's fine, they said somehow all the settings had gone haywire, it was just very very wrong. Now it feels better than ever... odd.
