    JKM in pompey if you want a pretty reliable / accurate result matey, or Regal Auto-sport in Soton seem good too, then there's surrey rolling road too, although not sure how far away they are. theres also a smaller place in reading who's name I forget.
    make sure it's a FWD specific rollers you go to, only one roller is usually knurled, so most require a change of setup to run RWD/FWD. I saw 15bhp difference on identical rollers set up opposing ways round!

    Honest answer though, it's 180-190bhp, wait until a forum RR day comes up and tag along like I do. If I see any coming up I'll let you know!

    Most of the seat/Skoda boys don't mind us tagging along on their arranged days. I've been to 3 SCN days so previously.

    There is also Storm developments in Aldermaston who have a front wheel drive set of rollers.
    The Phirm are also now in Hook, but not sure if they have an RR?

    Oh yea, I forgot about Storm, definitely the closest to you I'd think. They mapped my track car many years ago!

    Don't think The Phirm have a rolling road

    storm mapped my A3 not 100% with it TBH.

    wish i took the time to go up to R-tech instead.

    storm wants £48 per run

    If you havn't got access to VAGCOM, We can do some logs and stuff when I'm back up in Bstoke if you want man, get an idea of how it's running and roughly what it's putting out, saves you spending £50!

    Was it a custom code map you had at Storm? or one of their own maps they're doing now?
