    Right, if one were organised, who would be up for it?? It would be London/Surry/Sussex area. A rough idea of yes's would be helpful, and then I'll make some calls :)

    I got a reply from Kim Colllins at QST, and he wants £60 per run for 10 vehicles:faint:, thel ast time I went to a rolling road day, at the old AMD in Bicester , a couple of years ago, it was £25 per car - Was that too cheap or is this new one too expensive - How much have others paid recently on a RR day??

    I would be up for it as I live in London just to see how good my standard S3 is... but £60 quid seems too much for that...

    Kim did mine for £90 when I modded up, so £60 is not bad at all, but £25 and I will do mine again!!!!

    Yeah he did say it was normally £90, but on a RR day all they are doing is strapping the car down and doing one maybe two runs - 20 mins max start to finish, thats £180 per hour - what does he think he is a fuc$in plumber or something:asskicking:

    The Northern one was £35 per person for two runs each. Now I know we're backward barbarians up here but £60 is some hefty uplift just for being Southerners. Why not hold your Southern Rolling Road in Manchester ?- would still cost £60 per person incuding fuel !:blush:

    I've spoken to Regal Autosport recently and I think they quoted me £48 for dyno runs.
    So, if we can get 10 or more cars together there maybe a discount to be had.
    May even get a discounted group buy on GIAC maps!
    :idea:

    Maybe worth trying Thorney Motorsport in Milton Keynes, recently done the Evo mag dyno runs (incl. a recent Ferrari 430 Scuderia) and are totally impartial, not selling any Audi tuning products etc. and supposed to be very accurate.

    I have no links with them except they have done some work on my M3 CSL and know they are professional with great facilities and lots of parking room.

    Right - update on this:

    I'll contact Thorney Motorsport tomorrow - I guess my concern is, I'm keen to get a map where ever we end up, so pretty keen to make sure we end up some where that supports the maps people are interested in.

    I've got a quote from AMD that seems very reasonable and they offer AMD maps and Revo maps with discounts on the day.
    I'm waiting on a quote from Regal Autosport who do GIAC maps - however the 2 decision makers are actually out at GIAC in the states right now, so can not pull a quote and offers together until they return.

    I'll post details of all options when I have them all and we can make a decision then.

    Hope that's OK by everyone?

    Right so we've definately got enough people, for a RR day, and MK isnt too far for me(2hrs or so), in fact my brother in law lives up there so it would be a good day out for the family. And Mk is a bit more central, so hopefully attracting more cars??

    Jamie if you need me to make any calls let me know??

    And we need to sort a date out :thumbsup:

    MK maybe more central - but they can't offer what everyone is after. :shrug:
    We have 3 people hoping to get maps on the day and see the gains for themselves. I for one woudl definately like to see my car standard and re-mapped.

    AMD are offering £35 a car, BBQ, tea and coffee with a minimum of 15 cars.
    Also offering Revo at £499 + VAt with free Select (usually £150) or half price Select PLUS (usually £250).
    Of AMD maps (non switchable) at 20% off £499 + VAT.

    As mentioned above, I'm keen to hear back from Regal Autosport as I had been talking to them about RR'ing my car and GIAC before this thread started.

    The Thorney guys are BMW and Vauxhall specialists....

    I guess it depends what everyone is wanting out of the day??????

    Hi

    Just to clarify the AmD map is £399.95inc vat for 210bhp S3/A3 1.8T, £449.94INC for 225bhp S3 and £499.95inc vat for 2.0TFSi S3.

    All these prices will be less 20% on the day.

    And you will get 10% of any other purchases on the day and free fitting on Milltek.

    Cheers Shaun.

    I'd be interested.. if it was held at Regal or AMD :thumbsup:

    Price I'd been quoted previously for GIAC remap (310 or Hammer etc) was £619 including the stock map and flashloader. A bit of a discount on that and I'd be tempted.

    Update the list (add GIAC on the end of you're interested in that too) and I'll give them a call:

    1. Oli.H - S3 8P
    2. Oli.H mate - GTi
    3. Oli.H mate - GTi Edition 30
    4. jamiekip - S3 8P - GIAC
    5. S3-Nick - S3 8P
    6. billybuds -S3 8P (Depending if anyone comes and picks up my bluefin I am returning, I would be interested in GIAC!!)
    7. staz - depends what date
    8. deckedS3 - GTi ed30
    9. newbiecrg - S3 8P depends on date and GIAC
    10. S3 Big Andy - S3 8P
    11. S3 SAF
    12. sjahS3 - S3 8P - GIAC Hammer map (£££ and date depending..)

    I believe when the head honcho's at Regal get back from the states they will be pulling toegther a package that will certainly offer dicount on the GIAC map. I'm sure we won't be dissapointed!

    I'll keep you posted when I hear back from them next week.

    I don't mind where we go, as long as it's under two hours away and we're looked after??? A complete independant would be good, as we would get a truely independant view, but I do understand that some want re-map's, and it would be good to get some comparitive figure's on the day - before and after
