    Failed remapping

    The primary change on a stage 1 map is the point at which the bypass valve opens, there is little at the low end that is different which is why I expect it looks "stock"

    After much deliberation I am picking up some Genuine Audi colipacks from Audi today, I've gone for a full set. £25 inc vat each as they have been sitting on the shelf for a while, properly happy with that!

    S4 B8 Uprated Clutch Options/Recomendations?

    That is a good price, I think I paid around £800 for the clutch and LUK flywheel. It may be I didn’t bed the clutch in enough before my first launch... which may or may not have happened on the way home from the mechanics.... but even so I don’t think there is any way it would hold 530bhp.

    Well the track day didn't go so well, I managed about 15 or so laps before having to call it a day with EPC and check engine light.

    S4 B8 Uprated Clutch Options/Recomendations?

    The sachs extend is not enough - I have one fitted to my car at at only 400bhp it can't hold launching hard and slips. I did the whole clutch and flywheel at the same time. In retrospect I wish I had gone with a lightened flywheel and paddle clutch.

When I did the dry fit I didn’t have the pads in, with them in the disks bind, the brackets are off by 2mm - and I can’t tell you how much that has ****** me off. they do look great behind the wheels and having gone through a...

    The old brakes will be up for sale, assuming the fitting goes well today, have already had problems with the custom brackets once the pads were fitted.

    It really depends on your use case, for road use then you don't generally need much of a thermal upgrade, just better clamping for or pedal feel, for more spirited or track usage you need to be able to manage and disperse more heat more frequently. You also need to think about changing pads...

    I would have thought that would be fine so long as the box is sealed/closed

    And some of painting the calipers black primer to start with followed by a base coast colour I almost stopped here, but I had started out with a plan... and then finished with a lacquer to get them nice and glossy :)
