    I've got an APR mapped s3 and on full boost the clutch slips in most gears, but if I switch the map off for a couple of days and drive with the oem map when I switch back it doesn't slip. If the clutch is worn, should it slip 'all the time'? Or would it slip more when warm and using mapped boost a lot?

    It will slip when switching to mapped because of your higher boost/bhp...

    Yeah I just wondered why it doesn't slip again for a day after I switch over?

    It must be getting shiny from the gradual slip i guess? either way you are going to fook the flywheel if you keep driving it slipping ..
