    So finally DS1'd the whip, upgrading from Unitronic stage 2 U98. Started out with a file that Domino uses on his car but my injectors weren't liking it and were maxing out pretty quick. Which also affected the amount of boost that we could play with.



    So the tuner went with a different strategy (without having to upgrade injectors) and backed off the boost and kept under the tolerances of the stock injectors. making better power with a little less torque, but sustained torque in the midrange. Nice and smooth, without any spikes or such, which help from keeping rods getting bent. Tried a higher and lower torque file as well. I've stuck with the higher torque file for now.



    Final result between the Unitronic and the DS1. Remembering that Uni was using a beta file for DNWA engines.



    Goes to show that you really should go with a custom tune, as all cars don't behave the same, even when given the exact same map.

That's about it. We'll see what happens when I pick the car up this afternoon.

    Of course, I can't claim any drivetrain related issues from here on in, due to the mods made.
    Cheers, decided to go to Richmond where I bought the car, used Brighton in the past, but no pro's or con's. By the way you guys had any issues with the washer jets all over the place, the 2016 RS3 did the same, for car worth over $100K is not good. Also in bright sunlight I get a lot of multi-color speckle from the front windscreen, ? faulty glass?

    Joe Cool how was the service at Brighton?

    Service at Brighton was fine. I've been using them for in-warranty servicing for my last 3 cars. Only thing I found was they wiped all my VCDS mods. I'll just have to go back in and do them again!

    As for the jets you describe, one of the first mods to do is replace them with the misting jest from the A6. Originals I got here:

    Easy 2 minute replacement.

    Can't say anything about experience with the windshield other than Audi glass is f*cking soft. All 3 of my Audis have suffered either cracked glass or chips.

    It's when they turn on to lanky teenagers that the rs6 comes in to its own!

    Yep that’s what I’ve been told, the rear facing car seat isn’t as long

    The wife’s exclusive s5 sb finally got built after repeated delays and is on the water

    After a lot of maneuvering by my dealer I secured an rs6 build slot for end of year, and Audi finally agreed to doing an exclusive color amidst all the component and build delays, but currently the exclusive upholstery shop is closed, I believe due to German covid employee restrictions. Hoping by time I need to confirm spec it reopens

    Will you still be keeping the RS3 after the RS6 inbound?
