    I have booked my car in at the end of the month for a Stage 1 REVO remap @AMD in essex for my 2007 8P S3

    I was just wondering if anyone else might be interested in booking a slot some time in the next 2 months maybe in order for us all to gain a group buy discount. (Guy on the phone said it should take 2-3 hours)

    IF I get enough response off this thread I will enquire about it and get in touch with the people down at AMD.

    If not then I guess we will all have to pay full wack!

    Cheers,

    we arranged this with AMD Essex a month or so back, so most of us that were waiting went along and did it then. Hang around long enough and somebody fairly local will join you i'm sure.

    Its super, really pleased although I still have that slight hesitation sometimes at around 3k rpm, but new plugs should sort that out apparently.

    I haven't actually got around to ordering the select switch, will get on to it soon i think. Do you have to phone, i thought you just sent the form off to them?

    I think you can send off for it or phone, I personally always prefer phoning over for orders etc, dont trust royal mail the best of times!!

    Let us know if the plugs sort the issue mate.

    Sorry for the late reply

    Oh Shoot, missed it again! Ah well fingers crossed....I was wondering why nobody was really interested, usually there are so many responses to a Group by Remap

    I'm looking for the same....some perosns to join me in a Revo Group buy - I'm based up in sunny Scotland though but ready to buy now! Same sort of discounts being discussed with as much as 25% for 6+ persons!!

    Anyway, I don;t suppose as a Group we could contact Revo under this forum and then negotiate a forum disount applicable through all dealers....that way we could join forces?

    Anyone already tried this?

    Cheers.

    I asked them for a forum discount they said, "When we do this we never get the amount of numbers that we were promised but you can turn up with someone and get 10% off" :( Maybe you could try ur negotiation skills and try them again? :D

    Just to make clear fo those people considering a remap or just want to know the standard price:

    REVO STAGE 1 REMAP = £499.99 + VAT

    Turn up with me and you can get 10% of this price.

    SPS SELECTOR SWITCH IS £50
    SPS SELECTOR + SWITCH IS ROUGHLY £100

    DATE: 31ST JULY (SATURDAY) TO TURN UP WITH MYSELF AND GET A 10% DISCOUNT
