    It wont be any more than £40 anyway. They are pretty in that if the car is not right etc they will point you in the right direction and know their stuff. Are you on scottish vag? Would prob get some people from there to go.

    just got a reply from Jim saying

    Simon, mk1 S3 & mk1 TT are not good to dyno because of the haldex system & for that reason I cannot hold a dyno day.

    Jim.

    So i guess we can forget about it

    Hi Simon

    Hows it going, kinda know you from Eastside VW (Pau1GTI). Nice S3 btw, your car made me go for the bentleys in the end. Will have them on by the RR day so I'll up this.


    How about wallace, or Ellon car clinic which was originally Jap Performance?

    sorry, why won't a Haldex system work on his RR?

    He has 300bhp an Octavia RS (or he did), that is Haldex if I am not mistaken,
    Can't belive he RR'd it somewhere else

    Nightmare min. Sounds like there's possibilities in Aberdeen, so will keep an eye on this.

    Alright Paul, I'm Rico on Eastside, seen some of your posts. Be good to meet if we can arrange something.

    Cheers,

    Rich

    I can speak to one of the MLR regional Reps I know from when I had my evo. He has some good contacts at wallace from doing similar RRday for the evo lads?

    If people think this could be an option I’ll speak to Steve.

    I contacted Dashfixer and the prices are:

    Price for 10-20 cars - 4WD £45
    2WD £35

    Price for 20+ cars - 4WD £40
    2WD £30

    They are based in Hillington Industrial Estate, Glasgow:

    [​IMG]

    It would be good if we could get a RR day on a Sunday around March/April time. As they are based in Glasgow this is pretty central for most i would imagine.

    Who would be interested?
