    Hi Guys,

    Was wondering if anyone on here has a remapped 300 bhp S3 in the North West (preferrably near Preston)? Wanted to see what the car was like and maybe get a ride in it as a passenger.

    I sold my A3 TDI last year and got a golf R32. Its a great car but it feels like it needs a bit more power. WIth it being n/a its a bugger to tune without paying lots of money (but am considering this also):salute:. Took it around Spa Francorchamps last yr and it was awesome fun. Here are some pics of me at the Bus stop chicane (taken properly!) and Eau Rouge at the bottom.

    This has made me wonder about upgrading to the S3 which can be tuned to over 300 bhp much cheaper and is about the same size as the R32 but a bit quicker. Been a member on here a while so hoping someone can help.

    Thanks

    yeah, I could do this, but you never get to give it the beans with the stealers.

    Actually was hoping someone in the NW may have even remapped it to over 300bhp so I can really see what that would be like.

    i live in Lytham. Are you getting it remapped in the next 2 wks??

    Would be cool to see how it is compared to the R32. I'm in no rush so when ever is convenient for yourself silverlogic. Cheers dude.
