    Does anyone know if I had my car remapped with Revo, could I then go and buy any second hand revo select switch off ebay to enable me to turn it on/off, or does it need to be programmed specifically for my car?

    I thought about asking revo, but I figured it could be considered a bit cheeky. A bit like finding a shop that sells something, but then asking if they know where I can get the same thing cheaper.

    You couldnt just go and try yours out could you?

    They're only £99 from Revo themselves - brand new. How much do they go on eBay for ? I suppose if you can get one for £20 or so its worth it. I'm pretty sure they are interchangeable so an eBay one would work. Why not ask around for a Revo member on here to try theirs on your car. You're welcome to try mine if you're near me.

    Yes you can use one. The only limitation I am aware of is that the older ones had firmware which isn't compatible with some newer cars.

    I think I've lost mine so I'm gonna be having to buy another - Pah :banghead:

    Yes I think it applies to purchases made within 28 days of the flash and is plus VAT as well IIRC.

    Pretty sure there is some `flexibility` on this offer.
    Other wise just buy one from e-bay.
    The full RRP from REVO is a bit of a piss take anyway IMO.

    cheers

    I think that was in conjunction with a remap. As a standalone purchase they cost a lot more.

    Don't buy an SPS, it won't work, has to be a select or select plus to work on an 8P A3.

    Yeah, but I think some one on here bought a select at the 28day discounted rate, beyond 28 days after date of remap. Im assuming a certain level of discretion is allowed. Besides, theres always ebay....if REVO dont want a sale!

    I was supposed to get a form sent in the post from my REVO dealer but it never arrived.:think:

    Assuming I dont need any more warranty work I would only use the select once every 12months or so.

    Would the same select swicth work for a MK5 Gti and my S3?

    Cheers

    That's a Select and not a Select Plus.

    But yes should work on an 8p as long as it has the correct firmware.
