My current car has the ECU upgrade from DMS

about 10% more power, 10+% more fuel economy. 50K km no problems watsoever :D

Cant speak specifically for the R8, but would love to hear any feedback as i'll like to DMS my r8 too :)

Regarding the ECU upgrade for any car, I'm always worried about the warranty. Doesn't it void the Audi one?

regarding DMS, it cannot be detected by the dealer.

my vehicle has been regularly serviced etc, no problems so far. warranty is still in place.

Best to check with a DMS representative if the issue concerns you.

No relation to DMS watsoever, just a happy client :)

I got this from DMS

"We are able to increase power and torque by around +28 BHP and +22 lb/ft. The gains do not look in any way dramatic but the car drives more cleanly with improved performance between 2000 rpm and 4000 rpm. The upgrade is undetectable by Audi service and diagnostic equipment and can be carried out at your location. Cost £1200+vat."

I wonder if they would be interested in a 'group buy'. They have a good reputation (and offer discount) to TT Forum members. £1200+VAT is quite an expensive remap, but I guess you pays your money and takes your choice...

Audi remapped my RS4 last year, as a free upgrade which applied to all cars. I assume that would have wiped out any third party prior upgrade?

I was looking at the company that Guilty used and they are priced at around 1000 euros. They mentioned that any remap that Audi did would wipe theirs. They did say they would remap for free if that happened.

I haven't been to Nederland since I divorced the "Dutch" wife. I reckon its cheaper and a better day out! - the remap not the wife :)

I spoke to DMS and they give a 3 year warranty on the work,so that if the remap is detected and it affects any warranty claim you have with audi they will cover it.
If you add the milltek exhaust the car would produce circa 460-470 bhp.
