    Controversial: upgrades without a remap?

    A thought thats bugging me: Is there any point/benefits from applying bolt ons to the RS3 FL without a remap. I know the car's ECU is pretty much massively different from how it manages its power compared to the S3 and the RS3 PFL. In that you will forever be fighting the ECU when applying...

    Breathing and Exhaust upgrades

    I’m a proud new 5 pot owner in a FL sedan. I want a few upgrades to lift performance only a tiny bit but mainly gain sound. My reason being I have 3 years warranty and doing a remap is a little out of the question for at least 18months so let’s hear the potential rather than feel it if you get...
