    Chill on the way there dude, it'll make the drive home that bit better!

    Biggest tip though, and I'm serious on this one, take a few packs of Chocolate hobnobs with you. Nick and the boys love them, and it'll almost certainly get you off on the right foot!

    Other than that, if it's on coilovers, take a jack and C-spanner incase you need to raise it to get on the rollers, and just make sure it's all 100% before you go :)

    You'll be amazed at just how quick it'll be afterwards :) Hope you're clutch is up to it!

    i drove up from down this way mate, to avoid speed cameras, just dont speed lol.
    take it easy on the way up and like prawn said it will make the journey home that bit more awesome!
    also, i would highly recommend you make sure everything on the car is in a1 condition, Nick and the team, are very "anal" on the health of your car before they even touch it, because of this i actually went there twice! and also having it mapped will make anything that is faulty very obvious.
    oh and one last thing, make sure it has decent fuel in it! :) hope this helps

    It's true mate. Rule one of taking your car for a remap is to take treats to keep them sweet.

    I took Maryland Cookies for Bill and Tuffty when we went to Bills ;)

    I know it's fully sorted on the me7 cars Liam, I did pm nick to ask if he could do it on our me3.8, but never got a reply.

    I'll ask him about it when I'm up there for stage 2 on the daily :)

    Is that not a total clutch destroyer on these cars?!

    I dont think it really exists for our cars but launching is bad enough as it is for the clutch so i can't imagine using launch control would be particularly worse.

    Nick offered to do me a stage 2 with launch control for my 01 amk and there's a YouTube vid of nick launching his golf using launch control
