RS3 would be fantastic but PCPs on RS models don't really work unfortunately, high interest rates and no real discounts make the monthlies pretty eye watering.
Anyhoo, thanks for all the input, seems like the general consensus is that tuning an 8V S3s ECU is currently a risky process.
Previous 2 times S3 8P owner and ASN regular but not posted here for ages.
Anyhoo, quite fancy another S3 now that PCPs are more sensible since the car has been around for a bit, and wondered what the crack was with remapping the 8V and warranty implications?
All of my VAGs for years have been...
Get some more pics up and more info on the spec.
Car looks superb in Estoril but your add is really light on detail and the 2 pics are not the best.
Show off the interior and shout about any options.
Sold my 12plate last year for about £21k ish, same car as yours in IBIS white and it ended...
I had a resonated system previous as I was worried about excessive noise.
If anything it was maybe too quiet and if I was to do it again would probably go non-res.
With early leggy Stage2+ S3s now dropping below the 10k mark Im tempted to get back into one actually.
I test drove the A45, 8V S3 and 135i back to back as potential replacements for my 8P S3.
The 135i was the best to drive, cheapest PCP, but ultimately little bit too cramped to be my daily family car. Very tempting though.

A Stage 1 20T will be 250bhp tops, Stage 1 S3 will be upwards of 310bhp.
The suspension is different.
The brakes are bigger.
The internals are different so more tuneable.
The residual values are stronger.
It has different wheels, bodykit...
