Yea they changed the ECU on the latest S5 so no remap just yet. Don't think MRC are far off getting it cracked though
Spoke to mrc and they are currently close to being able work with the latest CREC software
They are confident that by my delivery time comes (12-14 weeks) they should have something in place.
Think the latest change to ecu was march 2015
So does this mean both you guys are getting a map once its done as you keep posting on the subject
Absolutely. I bought my last 3 cars with the intention of tuning them. I didn't for the WRX since I crashed and wrote it off before I had the chance . For my B5 S4 I waited 2 years until the warranty expired (it was a personal import so no 3rd year) and then had it remapped. I'm not going to wait 3 years before getting the S5 tuned but want to get 1 Audi dealer service recorded before I do so that will be at 12 months old which is in April.
In a way I have no choice but to get it tuned. When I decided it was time to move on from my B5 I wanted to consider a break from 'specialised' insurance and servicing and get a car which would be good enough unmodified. I dismissed the TTRS as too small and then considered a Nissan GT-R. But the practicality of that bothered me and then someone on a GT-R forum suggested I get a stage 2 B8 S4/S5 which should have 'similar' performance to one of the early unmodded UK spec GT-Rs. So getting a stage 2 on my S5 is simply completing the decision I made a year ago.
That strongly suggests that yours is NOT a CREC engine. The engine code is on a label in the engine bay. Mine is visible on the bodywork on the offside.
