    Just got my S3 back after it snapping the cam belt and taking out head, valves and pistons, also had my K04 hybridized while off too and expected to be able to just get my stage 1 revo upgraded to stg 2 for £100 (as quoted previously by AMD) - well now as I haven;t got my original bill of sale they want to charge me £399, well i'm buggered if i'm going to pay that, so was wondering if anyone else knew of something cheaper.

    Current spec is - forged pistons and H section rods, Hybrid K04, Cat back MIltek, Forge Front mount (with the 2 std ones too, I know!!!!) Forge recirc and revo stg 1

    ANy advice would be appreciated

    I thought the upgrade cost was only £50??

    Anyway, I know that doesn't help. Haven't the people who mapped it got a record of you having it done? Could you get other proof - a bank statement or anything that proves you paid for it?

    You'd think they would keep some kind of records.

    It was already on the car when I got it, the only reason I want to get it mapped is for the safety aspect, not because I want it to be quicker, is my everyday car, the skyline is for going fast and blowing up lol.

    I don't mind paying a couple of hundred quid but I can get my skyline live mapped for £500 so i'm buggered if i'm paying £400 for whats prob going to be a generic flash anyway

    It seems rather greedy to want to sting you that much, clearly the car has their stage 1 remap so clearly the car is a customer of their product, the upgrade to stage 2 shouldn't be an expensive add on. Seems a bad move on their part to alienate a customer that way particularly these days when that sort of thing gets posted on the net and may well deter other future customers - not good PR - IMHO anyways.

    I thought it was stage 3 Revo you would need. Stage 2 is just for exhaust, intake and fmic.

    sounds about right i had bad experience with AMD but as said id expect stage3 would be best, speak to badger5 he is probably the one to use seems to actually care about the product he is working on and isnt a massive company that will just brush you off, every time i have delt with him i have had no reason to not want to go back,
