Has anybody seen or tried a map which is switchable with the cc stalk, I know that awsome do one and ive just had an email from jbs saying custom code do one, I asked them how it works with the a n/a R and suprisingly they can add 5 maps, a tuned 98Ron, tuned 95 Ron, stock, valet, and security mode . I maybe could see the point with a turbo but is it worth it on the R??? Also is there any more companies that offer a dsg map other than jbs?? .. Jbs still havent gave me a price yet .

many years ago I had a switchable APR map with my GTI turbo, stock, 95ron, 98ron.

At the time it was a great idea, but in all honesty, I just left it in 98mode all the time, unless it went in for servicing. There just isn't any time you'd want to drive around in 'normal mode', you might aswell have it in full on mode, and just adjust your driving style.

On the R32 I just wouldn't bother with a selection of maps. There's so little overall gain with an R32, that you should just map it and leave it at that.

Yeah I thought that too, I was trying to justify it but like you say I doubt paying all that money out to run it in normal mode just beats the point of having a map, do you have any recommendations other than jbs for mapping I want the dsg doing too??

HPA Motorsports do DSG maps.

The only trouble with Revo and the like is they leave their mark in your ECU which can be difficult to get rid of if you want a map done somewhere else at a later date, or to sell the car on completely standard.

As for switchable maps. I agree with Clarkson on his hatred of Sports Buttons. It's like 'Sports' is just how the car is by default and other modes just make the car worse.

Hi fis1227

From today to 9th August APR software has a 20% discount so that will bring the price down from £358.8O inc VAT to £287.04 inc VAT (switchable options all included in that price too)

Hope this helps!

Mike

Yeah I know what you mean basically I just want it more responsive than what it is now as at times it just feels lazy! The dsg starts to act like its ready to go to sleep lol

Mike do you map the dsg or is it just the engine??

Switchable maps are pointless IMO.

HOWEVER.....the only reason I used APR and then REVO after Awesomes amnesty is because they have a security lockout feature. The car can't be driven away even they have the keys.

Never realised Custom Code did switchable maps. APR maps were great as they had fault code erasing and throttle body alignment features as part of the map, as well as a valet mode. I prefer the REVO map as although you lose a lot of the features compared to the APR maps, the map can be altered slightly to suit your mods.

Hi Alan, valet mode on APR software limits the RPM to 4000-4500rpm, cuts a bit of the timing to make it safe yet slow and limits the speed to 70~mph

Hope this helps!
