    VCDS + chip...perhaps!

    Morning all. Going from an 8V S3 to the new A5 2.0 TFSI. Stuck a few nice options on, mainly Tour Pack and Technology Pack. Two questions to the knowledgable out there! Think I might have a remap done as going from the S3 with 300ps to the 190ps front wheel drive car will take some...

    Burnt out 65 plate S3 - Not for feint hearted

    Courtesy car in place of your S3?

    S3 - Efficiency mode DOES work!

    I do about 600 miles a week in mine. I did start watching the economy and using efficiency on the motorway but then I got bored and it's mainly dynamic, manual mode and lever pulled back into S for the noise. It's the only way!* *its not actually the only way I've seen near 40 in efficiency...
