    Remap issues!

    Seriously considering getting my S3 remapped and it needs a service soon so was thinking about getting it done at the same time. I'd heard really good things about Star Performance but was speaking to a mate at the weekend who kinda put me off. Not sure who to believe - has anyone had any...
