Below is the Newsletter sent out in the last day or so...

As a registered member of VW Audi Forum you have received this email from the Administration. If you no longer wish to receive them, please follow the instructions in full at the bottom of this message. This also applies if you have requested removal in the past. If you do not follow the instructions to the letter we cannot remove you.

If you are a regular member of the site you will notice that in early 2015 we did a full update of the site.

This made the site cleaner, brighter and on the whole much improved over the old "darker" scheme.

We do still have one or two "minor" issues which we will continue to look at.

It has been a while since we sent out a "newsletter" as things have been rather quiet, but these are the current offers that may be of interest.

There are a lot of offers from our Sponsors, I hope they will be of interest.

If you no longer wish to receive these mails please follow the instructions at the bottom of this mail.

** Expert Tuning **

Remaps for VAG Tricore protected ECUs and DSG gearboxes.
Expert Tuning are offering forum members owning many post-2009 VAG vehicles remaps for £200 instead of £345 due to the fact most Tricore protected ECUs are now mappable through the OBD port. At the same time they can also remap your DSG gearbox to take full advantage of power gains for an 'add-on' price of £175 instead of £250. Availability of both services is dependent on exact model details.

For more details see the Expert Tuning's recent entries in the 'sponsor offer'
Section of the forum and drop Paul an e-mail with details of your vehicle, including the registration number, so he can confirm exactly what can be done.
The more detail you can provide of your requirements, the better!

Expert Tuning provides services in the South East including London and the Home Counties.

We are able to offer DSG gearbox remaps for most models in the VAG range. When we remap your engine, our DSG gearbox remaps will be offered at a discounted price of £175, a reduction of £75 on our usual £250.

It is by no means a must to remap a DSG gearbox after a remap. The standard DSG setting on most cars we remap are more than sufficient for most drivers. It really depends what you're after, and what the gains are from your engine remap. For example, an S5 3.0tfsi gains approximately 80 bhp and 80Nm of torque from a remap. In this case, torque limiters in the DSG gearbox will be restricting the best use of the extra power. While we're modifying torque limiters to allow that extra 80 bhp and 80Nm of torque to be properly utilised, we can also:

Speed up gear change response times
Modify rev limiters
Modify auto gear shift points
Disable kickdown to allow more direct control
Disable auto upshift to allow more direct control
Enable launch control (some models)

For more details please e-mail me at info@experttuning.co.uk telling me which car you have and which gearbox you have fitted (if known). The registration number will really help! Make sure you let me know what it is you're specifically after and I can get a detailed reply back to you.

It’s new, it’s secure and it works. Protect your Vehicle.

Think your car is secure? Think again.

Did you know over 300,000 vehicles are stolen each year in the UK alone?

Did you know that your car could be stolen in 20 seconds?

Do you know what OBD is? Car Thieves DO!

The inside story.

Today’s modern vehicles use many computer controlled systems, from switching the indicators to managing the engine’s performance. Amongst these systems is the car security. When an authorised dealer needs to investigate a problem, specialist equipment can be connected to the OBD port in the car to send and receive electronic information. OBD stands for On Board Diagnostics and is a valuable tool in the right, trusted hands. However the same technology is now freely available to anyone who knows where to look and can be used for other less legitimate purposes.

WARNING!

Organised criminals are using OBD technology to steal your car.

All that’s required is a low cost piece of electronics which runs key cloning software.

Your pride and joy gone in seconds, maybe never to be seen again.

Protect your Vehicle with the OBD Blocking Solution.

What is it?

The OBD Blocker simply blocks unauthorised communication through the OBD port to your vehicle. This helps prevent key reprogramming or other unauthorised activities.

How is it installed?

The OBD Blocker comes as a matching pair: a small tag which is attached to your key ring for easy access and a module which is firmly connected to the existing OBD connector in the car.

How does it work?

Think of the Blocker as a switch. Without the matching tag the switch is off, so blocking unauthorised access to your car. To enable access place the tab on the module and the switch will turn on.

When will the tag be required?

The only time the tag will be required is when you take your car to a garage for repair work, service or for a breakdown recovery service like the AA.

Security at its best
