Well I didnt pay 10k for my car, in fact I paid less than half that!. I was looking for an 8L S3, had liked them for years, then out of the blue an 8P 2.0 TFSI appeared for sale less than 2 miles away. The previous owner didnt give it a lot of love and the garage thought it had serious problems. Turns out it needed a new diverter valve, the N75 valve was leaking badly and the thermostat was stuck open, apart from that it was great. I knew that with a couple of mods it would be faster than the old S3, with more potential for more later, and the 8P was 3 years newer than the 8L's I had been looking at. My budget is tiny compared to most of you guys so 300 is a lot of money, and the cost to benefit doesnt make sense to me. In fact you could say I am stubborn and I wont get remapped until I have found the limits of the stock software and can get no further.
