    I got +2mpg this morning on my way to work. On that basis my Bluefin will pay for itself in 32,262 miles lol!!

    Looking forward to your review mate. Seriously tempted to get the S3 S-tronic map on my Bluefin device. Only got 1200 miles on my car though so I will wait a little wile yet. Hope it is a 'noght and day' difference on the S3 as it was on my Mkv Gti I had Bluefin'd! For what its worth, I seen quite a good increase in mpg on long runs after I mapped the Gti.

    Is your S3 Auto or Manual?

    When installing my Bluefin map I had esp and brake warnings flash up on the dash - after the install was complete I switched the ignition off and then back on and they were gone.

    Is this normal ? Just used VCDS to reset the fault codes.

    Not a lot of miles done this weekend only about 60, the map is behaving itself quite nicely though, there's a noticeable difference up to 3000rpm but once it hits that it really lets rip and sticks you back in your seat way more than before.

    Not done enough miles to get a view on mpg yet and doing some reading it seems that it'll take a couple of hundred miles for the map to fully settle down.

    I'll report back further during the week but I am impressed so far

    Which one would I pick? My A3 is a 2011, 2.0 tdi 140bhp black edition. Would it be the 2003 onwards or the CR option?

    They have to take the ECU out flash it then put it back in the car for it to work. I contacted them last week re my 2010 2.0 TDI 140 black edition.

    Whole reason I wanted the bluefin was the fact I didn't have to mess with ECU and keep it hidden.

    Now gone for a tuning box off DTUK which is awesome so far.

    Just installed my Bluefin and on first impressions all i have to say is ...OMG oh why did i not do this earlier.lol Pickup and acceleration is awesome with little if any lag. Throttle response is amazing. I will let the map settle down to get better view of the map, but so far Superchips have done an amazing job.

    Just looking at the bluefin website.

    S3 stage 1 is £365. There is also a stage 2 and 3 options for £50 each. What are 2,3 for? Do you buy them after stage 1?

    So stage 1 would be +50Bhp and then stage 2 would be another +50hbp. #confused.

    Stage 2 and 3 are there to take advantage of engine mods, very broadly:

    Stage 1 - standard engine
    Stage 2 - aftermarket exhaust and cold air intake
    Stage 3 - As 2 plus high pressure fuel pump, possibly enhanced intercooler.

    Smiffi just do it, you wont regret it. I was like you contemplating about getting one for almost a year now and all the while knowing i would eventually get one. You might also want to look at the Shark maps for the S3 as i heard they are good, but for the price of a Bluefin at the moment you cant go wrong.

    I'll probably stick to Bluefin as I already have the loader thingy from when I had my MkV Gti mapped.

    Hi all so I decided to go with bluefin for a remap.

    I bought a reset unit which was used on a vag dsg car. Just have a few question before I Install tomoz.

    On dsg cars does the gearbox have to be I neutral when installing?

    As the bluefin has been reset how will it know my car is dsg? Does the bluefin need to be registered again?
    Thanks in advance
