im sure i'll have a grin on my face... but its the longest i have been with a standard car... 24 hours is my usual turn around for some mods lol...

haha, ok thats a bit of a difference!
give you plenty of time to get the car spotless and a good layer of wax on it before it gets massively dirty from all the driving then lol

Just be happy you even have the engine cover! I've had cars come back from various dealers without the cover all together!

new toys this week!
Milltek non res special tips cat back
Evolve Remap!

Anyone know if my car goes into Audi for spare key recode after i have mapped it, will they detect it? or will they do any sort of software update. Bear in mind i have had the car 2 weeks or so, from Audi. Evolve said to wait until its back from Audi then do the map... i'm still waiting for the spare key from Audi. been 2 weeks, plus they need to sort out my tracking at the same time.

How much did they charge you for new key?
I need one.

no charge, the spare was broken when i picked up the car, so they are sorting one out on the house, and so they should, but taking their time in doing so! demand one from your dealer!
