    Slightly nervous.....

    Off to remap £113,500.00 of Audi R8 Spider this afternoon....

    Yes, the very same one that was on topgear on sunday, 5.2L V10...

    Good luck mate Just remember though....the fact that they've chosen YOU for the job obviously suggests that you're more than capable of doing it without breaking it.

    Anyway, as I said - good luck and have fun Its not every day that you even get to SEE an Audi R8, let alone get to work on one! Are you going to get to drive it as well?

    Cheers Aussie....Should be fine with it, just I've never mapped a car of this magnitude yet.....I've done a Continental GT which went like a dream, but not one of my top 10 motors....

    Hopefully I'll get to go out in as well...haha!!

    Shiftydave....I work for Black Code remapping. done a fair few Astra 1.9L CDTi's that now pull like a train!

    I'll get a load of pics as well, see if the powers that be here will let me post them?

    ok at the risk of being boo'ed off stage here i would like to know why on earth would you want to remap a car that already has that much power ? and surely that would c0ck up the warranty

    ^^^ Good question....some people are just not happy with 518 screaming ponies and their disposal.....if I can give it an extra 30-50 BHP...then I'm happy to help.

    As for the warranty, we have one in place that works along side the manufactures, thus customer is happy, job done!

    i can see what your saying but would you really notice 30/50 more bhp on top of a massive 518 ???

    good about the warranty though
