    Can anyone recomend some where to get my new s3 Revoed in midlands, I have been toying with the idea of bluefin but the more a read on here more I think the revo will give me more power ?

    Would be nice to here if there is some where and also if they give good service ?

    Perhaps rolling road before and after....?:icon_thumright:

    the only other thing is that the bluefin with the audi sport.net discount is now on £391.50.... I guess the revo will be more like £500 ?

    I too would like to know the answer to this question! I'm in the Midlands and soon to be picking up an S3 and think Revo looks the way forward. Either that or the GIAC place in Sheffield maybe?? :shrug:

    Looks like Alson Automotive in Dudley maybe our best bet. Haven't got my S3 yet so if you do use them, please let me know how you get on.

    A software dealer is pretty much of a muchness to be honest, its hard for any of them to mess up downloading a map to your car, it all depends on who gives you biscuits with your brew whilst you wait. All Revo dealers use the same method but try and argue over the price, £500 was ok a few years ago but with other companies doing very similar things for £300 or less, they have to reduce their prices to compete.

    Search for my "RS3" thread mate. I used to have Bluefin (£399) and then switched to Revo (£499). So it cost me £898 to get Revo - should have just gone Revo in the first place.
    You get what you pay for in this world.
