    These sorts of rumours tend to occur every time there is a new model. From what I've seen in the past, where there is a will there is a way, and it'll only be a matter of time until the tuners crack the new ECUs and are able to offer their tunes. Ultimately their business model depends on it!

    Yeh itís just a matter of time before someone is able to bypass the factory ecu lockouts so I wouldnít let that be a barrier to buying the 8Y

    Ideally youíd want to just be able to fit a good quality catback to return the sound killed off by new regs and opf, and some cars that is the case - however the rs3 unfortunately is really hampered by the opf, and if youíve owned a PFL, itís tough to accept

    I really cbb doing all the same mods again on an 8Y, Iíll save the energy and patience for an rs6 when Audi aus come to the party and approve the spec I want

    Maybe then itíll be easier to move on from the 5 pot
