Righto Gents, First thing is that i'd like to state that the following was done on a privately hired area, totally free from pedestrians, other vehicles, livestock, wildlife in general, milk floats, Pensioners and women drivers! Also people involved wore safety equipment and had the car's mechanically checked before the fun began! (Hopefully this should stop the armchair police from cherpping up!) :busted_cop: I have been looking at getting my car remapped as most people on here do and was wondering what the difference was between a standard car and a car with a remap. So here's the scene, my standard 2008 S3 (apart from panel filter) and my mates Bluefin'd 2007 S3. My car kickin out around 266BHP and his around 309BHP. Car's both running the same fuel type, same tyre pressures, same amount of passengers, well drivers as it was just us (although he is a little heavier than me ) Basically we thrased our S3's around to see what the remap does for up to and around the English speed limits..... The answer you ask..... Absolutley nothing! there was nothing to seperate the 2 motors, 1st & 2nd gear acceleration is virtually identical and at one point as we sprinted from a standing start from which i was directly behind him i started to reel him in in 3rd! My car is still quite tight in the engine department too after only 1400 miles approx, my mates has done around 3k i think?? So what i'm trying to say is that all the reviews on here where people have said that their S3 now takes off and accelerates like a space rocket must have it all in their head as its the same speed of acceleration as before! Would like peoples opinions on this as always but if i'd spent £500 on a remap and the standard S3 next to me stayed with me i'd be gutted! Surely 40 odd BHP more makes a difference?? Let the opinions begin!
