  1. Revo Technik Select Device

    I will now post to UK destinations for free.
  2. I have for sale a Revo Technik Select SPS device which is only 2 months old in fantastic working condition. I have converted my car back to stock for part exchanging and therefore this is no longer needed. The unit cost £171.35 when new and I am open to offers. Due to the value of the item I will be sending the device via Royal Mail Special Delivery for £7.00 to UK destinations. Sending to EU destinations will cost £12.00 via Royal Mail Airsure. I can accept PayPal payment which is the best method to pay and any questions welcome.
  3. Going to part ex S3 for 335d

    Made my mind up and going for an SE model. I think the SE wheels look better than the M sport alloys and there really isn't much between them in general. Unfortunately the short listed dealerships I spoke to do not accept remapping, but I'm sure a tuning box will get over this. I am now very excited and just making sure I don't rush into anything. I hope to make a deal very soon and let the fun begin.
  4. Going to part ex S3 for 335d

    Thanks for all the posts. I didn't get a chance to drive out today, but instead spent sometime using the BMW website searching used approved cars in my surrounding area. My nearest is Borehamwood which is an SE model, how much do these differ to the M sport?
  5. Going to part ex S3 for 335d

    Finally had enough with Audi as a brand and the problems I have had with my 2003 S3 and decided on a complete change and started looking at a used 335D M sport which seem reasonably priced from a dealership. I have been out for a passenger ride and my first impression is that its in a different league to the S3, the torque is unbelievable. And having read peoples reviewed of a DMS remapped version, I am very keen and excited about finding the right one. Not knowing much about BMW customer service, how do they look upon remaps on approved used cars? I am keen to keep the warranty valid and the remap is going to be noticeable on a test drive. Do DMS sell a switchable mapping box for flexibility over standard and performance maps like Revo do for VAG cars? Going to be trekking out again tomorrow to visit some other dealerships and hopefully get a test drive in one.
  6. I have an 8L S3 BAM with 53k miles and the ESP light intermittently stays on and then goes off again, sometimes can be controlled using the ESP button and sometimes it cannot. The fault is as follows: 01435 - Brake Pressure Sensor (G201) - Implausible Signal - Intermittent Can anyone shed some light on the problem? I have read that the brake pressure sensor is part of the ABS unit on the S3 and costs are very excessive £1000+ !! Any help appreciated
  7. New S3 Owner with Graphs - Wheres my BOOST

    Audiss3, like you I have spent quite a bit of money so far in trying to correct the problem, a new MAF, Forge DV, new latest green top coolant sensor and lots of rolling road tests at different room temperatures and many trips to various Audi dealerships, but still I cannot beat it. My last attempt will be a pressure test in the hope that its an easy fix. If I am unsuccessful I think that a part exchange is on the cards which is a real shame because I really love driving my S3 but I want the most from it. Will be testing mine over the next 2 weeks and will post my findings.
  8. New S3 Owner with Graphs - Wheres my BOOST

    Did you get the pressure test quote for £45 from Audi? I have the exact same problems as you, I am also running a revo map and the boost on a rolling road is very similar to yours. I am using a Forge diverter valve with the OEM hoses which have been checked over with no concern. I have run VagCom with no fault codes on the engine which is very frustrating because like you I want the full performance of the remap. I am going to be pressure testing my pipework but need to work out how I am going to do this. I don't want to be pressurising pipework that doesn't hold boost i.e air intake which will possibly lead to further problems. Please make sure you return to this post if you are successful in finding the problem.
  9. New S3 Owner with Graphs - Wheres my BOOST

    Is it possible to make a DIY pressure test kit to try and locate the boost leak? I would like to do this myself and as I am experiencing the same problems and it's frustrating after having paid for a remap. I remember reading someone doing the same, but cannot find the post!!
