    Inorder to remap my S3 8P with Revo software, do I need to visit a Revo dealer or can you buy hardware with the software installed so i can do it myself?

    Just wondering as I live in Aberdeen and the nearest dealer is over 60 miles away!

    Has to be a dealer visit, unless you can get an agent to come to you or meet halfway.
    iirc REVO have £100 off at the minute.

    Good luck

    Thanks Paul, bit of a pain that. My last car was an ST and loved the fact the Dreamscience product.

    Would anyone recommend Bluefin over Revo?

    The feedback on Bluefin seems to be indifferent and people have been pretty underwhelmed by the gains on the S3.
    I had planned to go for Bluefin but after a bit of research decided against and went back to REVO for those reasons.
    Staz has Bluefin but iirc and was only happy with his after some custom mapping.

    Superchips do a 7 return on the Bluefin product so you can always send it back if you are not happy.

    There is a 50-100 mile post map period where your ECU will adapt and the gains will seem to increase slightly, however from my experience there should be a significant difference imediately after the software has been installed so make sure you can feel that `before and after` difference.

    My advice would be to have a run out to you nearest REVO guy and hand your money over. I did a 100mile round trip to have mine done and its a minor inconvenience for the end product, remeber too that the trip back will be a lot more fun and a lot quicker!

    Good luck
    Paul

    Would recommend Stewart @ Performance VAG - he came to me in Glasgow and the service was first class. Drop him an email and mention me.

    Never heard of these guys, might have gone Revo if I knew at the time but Im happy with GIAC right now. A bit inconvenient having to wait till holidays to go to Stattler in Sheffield or drive all the way to kirckaldy for a new map though :-\

    Had mine Revo'd yesterday at Awesome GTI and I'm well impresssed!

    Car goes much better, well worth the cash.

    And I took advantage of the £100 christmas offer, so it was a bargain!
