    Hi there guys..

    was looking through the TT forum and saw a group buy the had for an AMD remap. Prices were really good... none of this crappy save a tenner here and there... PROPER SAVINGS

    1. One Click Generic (Normally £499+Vat) GB=£499 Inc Vat <font color="red">SAVE £87.32 </font>

    2. One Click RR (Normally £750+Vat) GB=£650 Inc Vat <font color="red">SAVE £231.25</font>

    3. RR Remap (Normally £550 + Vat) GB=£470 Inc Vat <font color="red">SAVE £176.25</font>

    4. Serial port generic map (later cars only) GB=£400 Inc Vat

    EXPLANATION
    1. The remap options are the One Click box to allow you to switch back to standard at will, totally undetectable when you are back to your oem map.

    2. Same again but the map is done on the rollers and any custom tweaks needed will be made and loaded onto the One Click box.

    3. Standard (Custom) RR remap, required for older cars as its a chip change, otherwise serial upload on later cars.

    4. or the cheapest option of a Generic Map, serial uploaded. This essentially the Generic One click map without the one click box.

    anyway.... i would be happy to organise one of these for this forum.... obviously i would have to negotiate the prices again with AMD but hopefully they would be similar to this GB.

    The TT forum needed 10 people so hopefully it would also be the same in my case...

    so ...anyone interested??

    thanks

    Nathan

    Jedi, once you have the information, let me know and we can arrange to put this in the group buy section.

    Interested in option 2 or 3 depending on the deal you can get.

    Would we all have to go to AMD on the same day , only reason I ask is its a decent distance to travel from the North West but everybody who goes there raves about the service etc so I am up for it.

    right just spoke to AMD and they said that it should be fine... he just needs to confirm with his boss and will let me know this afternoon.

    looks promising though and he was impressed we had so many candidates without even trying

    hope so dicky
    Jedi I was going to sell the S3 and get an M3 E46 but have decided against that for a number of reasons!!
    1. new house buy
    2. insurance is a mare
    3. with a chipped S3 do I really need the extra cost and grunt!!

    let me know how the bargaining around pricing all goes.

    Option 1. one click generic for me /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Have to speak to AMD first though cos I've had a Revo trial and some say that causes problems for oneclick or DMS tuning box up/downloads.

    this is all very good guys... looks like we will have no probs finding enough ppl... i'll push for more discount if we get 15 or dare i say even 20

    all remapps can be discussed with amd and a date for the work set once i have agreed things with amd

    untill then just hold tight and count your pennies /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    hi there... just to update the situation..

    just spoke to amd who are going to discuss this tonight at some meeting and get back to me asap (hopefully this evening) with definate prices but they are sure they can match the ones in the tt group buy

    will hopefully have something more concrete by tomorrow morning and then i will set up a separte thread with full details.

    watch this space!!

    cheers
