    Never heard of them, but there a loads of differant serial port mapping companies about these days. The generic maps are readily available and any monkey with a laptop can upload one and tweek it's settings.

    I'd only trust my car with a recognised, established and most importantly RECOMMENDED tuning company. I'd recommend REVO, but there are many forum members who are equally happy with the products of other companies. Have a search for 'Remap' 'Jabba' 'AMD' etc.

    Well they sound awful from this thread!

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=21314&highlight=slipstream

    Not generic yet when there is a problem they need to remove the ECU and return it to Germany!

    Do people really think custom remaps can be had for £200? You can't even have one for £500! Still if people believe that tweaking 2 or 3 parameters out of the huge amount of information required to manage a modern engine is 'custom' thats there business i guess.

    Like I said, there are many mappers out there - go with one that is recommended.
