    To All S4 S-Tronic Owners-PLEASE READ

    That's quite funny! I was quite happy too at the start. Now I just have a feeling the only reason someone would sell their beloved S4 is if it had gearbox problems :p I hope you don't have problems with yours and should be fine.

    Revo Stage 1

    Are Revo paying you to say this :yes: haha. Would love to get my S4 remapped but worry that it will put undue pressure on my engine and components? I've already had a big S-Tronic issue without the car being mapped. It wouldn't bother me too much but nothing is cheap on these cars! Any advice?
