    wheel weight and vehicle load rating

    Thanks for the reply. so since the car weighs 1360 kg give or take and the four wheels take 2280 kg max load, i would be right in thinking they are fine or normal driving?

    S-Tronic APR Remap!

    i know, thats what i thought but even when you look at the prices of the other dsg maps APR offer you are still looking at £598 inc vat on a 8P S3 for example. If this is the case i think it will be going with Revo, had 3 cars mapped with them now and never had an issue and the customer service...

    H&R/ Eibach springs on S3?

    Thanks for the reply. I'm honestly not a massive fan of the set up on the S3, i know its basically a mature hot hatch but coming Evo's, Type R's etc its too soft for my liking, even the 2 8P S3's (pre facelift/facelift) felt stiffer.

    S-Tronic APR Remap!

    i spoke to awesome gti the other day and they said they are trying to unlock the 2015 cars as audi has put an anti tamper on the them. Was also told it would be £700 inc vat?! i spoke to revo and they the dsg map is in its final testing about should be £300+vat.

    H&R/ Eibach springs on S3?

    I know a few people have had these springs fitted and i have seen pics via google etc but i couldn't find anything to suggest the handling was improved over standard. I know the ride is unsettled when pressing on down bumpy country lanes etc but i was thinking of fitting one of the above springs...

    ECU counter 1/1

    Thanks for the reply, From what i can gather if it has a flash tool code then its a dealer that's done it but if not it suggests remap etc. Some say the counter should be 0 with the factory flash and would only move up if it had been updated during service etc. My car is a 15 plate and when i...

Is sport only engaged when selected through driving modes or knocking the gearstick backwards? Mine stays in drive but I could...
