    I have an MY11 S3 and it was mapped through the OBD2 port, best check which ECU you have.

    The 1.8TFSI uses an MED17.5 ECU which will most likely be protected and if it is, the ECU will need to come out whoever you have it done by. I'd recommend Shark Performance.

    Its a simple check via Vag com to see which ECU you have, so if AMD say it ok then im sure it will be. You just have to make sure everything electronic, and I mean everything, is turned off. When we did mine my iPhone was causing issues as I still had the BT on and it kicked the map out.

    I wondered if Shark were any good because I've heard a few good things about them, I called them today and spoke to Ben he seems like a sound bloke and took his time to give me all the info I needed + more and can be available to do the tuning at times that suit me so...I'm booked in for Sunday 21st November (might end up 15th Nov dependant on work) and I can't wait!

    I couldn't really give a flying f*** if they have a waiting room or not, I'm paying for a software upgrade not so that I can sit on a sofa and watch the tv I'll do that at home.

    I have nothing against Shark Performance. I was just asking if they have a waiting room yet as i know you used to have to go walk around town if your car was getting worked on for the day.
