This weekend saw me trecking back to sunny Bournemouth to spend some time with my family and while I was down, I dropped into the local VAG specialists, APD near Poole. While I was there, we got chatting about my lack of love for my 57 plate S3, and the owner of APD offered to take me out in my car and show me what all the fuss was about with the S3 as it was them that had suggested i swap the S4 cab for the S3. We went out with the car in totally standard mode and it was fine. He is a very good driver and it was an interesting experience. When we got back, he suggested that we put the Revo trial software on the car, so we flashed the ECU and then went out for a setup run with the laptop plugged in so they could get all of the settings right. I have no idea what we settled on in the end but it took about 15/20 mins to get right with my driving style. He then took me out again and he drove half the time and i drove half. What an incredible difference it makes to the performance of the car. I found that there was slightly less lag, the car pulled smoother through the revs and kept going into the red. We tried two different combinations until we settled on one that suited my driving style (or lack of.....) The trial lasted 5 hours in which time i used half a tank of fuel in 65 miles...... Needless to say I am absolutel smitten with the car now. I have about 20 minutes left of the trial and I know I am going to be raiding the piggy bank and counting the pennies to try and find the money to get the full verison of the software. For me, it has made the car infinitely better. The drive is smoother and the power delivery is superb and really has been tailored to match my driving style which I love! I now "understand" what all the fuss is about with the S3 and cannot wait to get the Milltek TBE fitted next month and then the ITG and stage 1 or 2+ if i can afford the fuel pump. I know that people on here have very varied experiences with the Revo trial, and maybe it was because APD took the time to set it up and adjust it to where i wanted it that made it feel so much better than standard. After the level of customer service I got from the guys at APD, I am now booked to get them to fit the exhaust and will definately be using them for the full version of the software as well.
