    I'm possibly up for this need to check it doesn't clash with my holiday.
    My poor little 2.0T is going to feel all embarrassed amongst all the s3s. Is there actually any non s3 people going?

    Yes indeed! I will be coming in my A3 2.0TDI and hopefully two other mates (one in an A3 2.0TFSI and another in a MK5 Golf GTI).

    Loba is probably the best currently and pretty much fixed price across the dealers.

    The Autotech is cheaper but DIY and the APR is more expensive.

    Cheers Mate, all the prices seem to be the same everywhere your right.

    Is the Autotech one worth the hastle doing the DIY your self over the LOBA?

    I didn't do mine(AMDTuning had that joy) but you do need a clean area and need to assemble it carefully.
    It's not beyond someone who's competent with tools but for the money now I'd choose the Loba.

    Don't forget to have the follower changed as well.

    If you do it yourself Warren did the guide on how to fit the follower.

    I have a feeling the RS6 will have me on the rollers,but power/weight might be a different matter,especially if the dog drives.

    Good point.

    I missed the extras!

    Full house would be a record,so let's keep going for the numbers.

    Mine ought to be ready for the day,assuming the cams are up to scratch.

    If i wasn't 560 miles away from AMD Essex i would come. £35 is a really good deal to find out what your car is doing..

    Id love to find out whats left of 140bhp that it had over 10 years ago as a starting point and compare with additions that i will make over the coming months.

    It's just a good fun day out.

    I've been to a couple now,and even if the car isn't on the rollers,meeting other people is always good.

    It is a long way though!

    Thanks.

    Just look for the dirtiest car in the area and it'll be mine. Lol.

    Ask Ben@AMD and he will confirm.
