I kept swing then thought Revo. 20 mins driver me plus I can go stage 2 if needed )Good stuff andy - I thought you decided to go with Celtic? What changed? Had my revo stage1+ done today mate - so far so good
Nice andy, how does it sound? Change the characteristics of the car in anyway when it comes to driving it?
I think I'm going to get the rear diffuser painted gloss black on mine and get some black audi rings for the rear, too (to match the other black edition features). I'll likely stick with chrome tail pipes for now - see how they look against black diffuser.
But will they also do before and after rolling road power runs?Nearly swung back to getting Celtic installed but then realised with a Revo map the garage will take my car out prior to installing the map to ensure nothing is wrong with my car. That in itself seems paying the extra £600 worth it.
Argh!!! i am so indecisive
A rolling road isn’t really nesisary revo and all these other company’s have Tried tested and proved these maps so the figures are there on paper of what you are buying
It’s a generic s4 map from them not a custom one so there’s nothing to set up on a rolling road it’s just a case of putting on the map and away you go
And you’ll deff notice
Not sure that's strictly true - I say this because I thought the same until I asked the tuners who were set to work on my car... being impatient i wondered whether I could just rock up and get stage 1 (thinking it was a plug and play jobby taking all of 2 mins) whilst waiting 3-4 days for the pulley to arrive for stage1+ (I initially also thought that the dyno was purely about proof of gains hence wasnt entirely convinced).
Apparently the revo maps allow the tuner to make changes to certain parameters (within a set tolerance) in order to get the best set up for your individual car. In order to do this they'll either do some road tests or use a dyno. There may well be some who just bang it on
Or alternatively nothing of what I've said is true and I've been sold a pup!
That's interesting because I recently heard that REVO don't allow their "franchise" tuners to make any changes, so much that if the map is not 100% compatible with a particular car, REVO need to update it at their HQ and send a new one out.Apparently the revo maps allow the tuner to make changes to certain parameters (within a set tolerance) in order to get the best set up for your individual car.

Can you recommend a paint? thanks for your inputIf I were you, I'd play safe and stick with REVO, their map will be on lots of 3.0TFSI engines so most potential issues will have been ironed out already.
QUATTRO thing below number plate, I'd be painting the plated fixing brackets that have nothing in them, same for the collision bar, black maybe silk in both cases so that they "disappear".
May need to take the bumper off and spray the thing. Another 2 hours labour with local garageI've always used Hammerite satin black and matt black and normal black,which ever seems to suit the surroundings, I've not replaced the grill so can't comment on what to use on the crash bar, rmember it is aluminium (I think), so it might need a specialist primer, also available from Hammerite, to give a lasting good look/job.
