    i had my custom code map done here, they sorted me with a passat for the day and fitted a new clutch switch for free (+ the cost of the switch at trade price) which sealed the deal for my customer service experience. I also rang up a year later to ask a few questions about a leaky turbo gasket that didnt even have anything to do with them and simon helped me out with some great info. at the time he took me for a spin in his s3 to show me what to expect from my amk and they had a 500+bhp r32 turbo half finished which looked crazy. all in all, a great experience! one more thing, they gave me the price that cc was offering in a deal a month before so £100 off! i think these are the guys to see in cornwall ;)

    yeah, you will have to book it in, the main thing is making sure they have a courtesy car as they are out in the sticks, also, please bare in mind the cc deal / offer was over 3 years ago so you will have to talk to them about price, cheers, james

    Hi RK Engineering would be able to offer the Custom-Code Phase 1 software suited to your vehicle for £250 inc VAT

    The Phase 2 software which would be tuned specific to your modifications is £350 inc VAT

    For the Phase 2 you would require the following modifications:

    FMIC (recommended)
    Downpipe and cat/decat with exhaust system
    TIP
    Air filter
    DV

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Phil,

    The software you would require would be the Phase 3 Custom-Code due to the injector change and turbo swap.

    What engine code is the A3 as this will determine if RK can do the relevant software or not.

    I enquired but got put off when they kept mentioning stage software, made it sound like a normal flash. The drive to bill at B5 is well worth it

    Just checked out their site, looks like they've upped their game since I enquired. Too late for me anyways, badger 5 done my stage 1 so will be going back for stage 2! Well worth the 300 mile round trip
