    Managed to get hold of some 09 s3 clocks as I am doing a 3rd facelift S3 conversion lol no one really confirmed that these would be able to be coded and work. But I can say it certainly does.

    Dropped the car off this morning and an hour later I had a phone call to say it was ready to collect and here are the results

    as you can the see it's 10x better and only cost £50 to get coded so Well worth it and a bargain too. As some may see the mileage still needs changing which couldn't be done as his machine was playing up but will be soon sorted and I'm well happy with it.

    The needle sweep and lap timer also work too which is even better.

    Got it done from a garage local to me, nothing was needed I went in with the facelift clocks and they fitted and coded it all in for me. I'll pm you the place that did it. At the price I paid it was miles cheaper than anywhere else. I'm all about saving people money so anyone that wants to know just PM me

    I'd love to know who's doing this so cheap too, and what tools were not working to correct the milage. Same tool that programs them also corrects milage... Pm details please

    Alltune garage ltd has been around a while they were originally a diagnostics company, i've been there twice to have this done as I was also told £50 to program them in. The first time they couldn't do it, the second time my car went dead and in the end I ended up paying £700 for a new dashboard. I weren't too happy about it as it was their fault but they blamed me saying it was a non compatible dashboard and that I didn't tell them this.

    You get what you pay for with these guys!!

    Yes your right would of been pointless if it was just clocks but going all the way, one other thing I like better on facelift s3 clocks compared to normal facelift clocks is white needles which I wanted lol

    I only asked about the immo as i have had several reports and dealt with cars that were programmed by others, this garage included, and immo was coded out rather than a correct proceedure following.

    This weekend I repaired 2 cars in Wales similar story.

    I know the tools they use, they have a very good tech support team who do the work for them, this work is what I do when I swap the dashes. My tools function differently and they take longer, introduce more risk to me causing damage( insurance in place to cover any loss to customer and as such the job is more expensive.

    I'll be happy to attempt a repair on any job this garage fails on and I'm confident of a good result. A3 and late mk5 golf dashes are very hard to work with for these conversions without the likes of NHN and a new unit.
