    Even though it has a map on it you’ll still need to have it mapped again to your car. It’s also for sale on another forum and I pointed out that the price was a little high when he was asking for £500. It has been mapped with Litchfield but again I think it’s useless and you’ll need to spend a further £250 for a Litchfield stage 1 map. I’d make an offer of £300

    How sure are you that this won’t work on his car?? I’m not 100% but I was under the impression that as long as I removed my Litchfield map from my car and it was stored in the Accessport I could upload it to another RS??

    @mky-77

    Do you have a link to this item??

    Cheers, Marc.

    Yeah it’s a V3 mate!! I think it’s good to go but wouldn’t like you to order it and it not to work!! What I’d do if I was you, just to be 100% sure, is phone Litchfield first thing in the morning and ask them!!

    Cheers, Marc.

    No that’s not true

    It’s plug and play, and has there generic stage 1 map suitable for any stock mk3 rs. My car has never been to litchfield I bought as plug and play over the phone and it all worked well. I then uninstalled the map and put the stock map back on car and sold the car.

    It would only have to be redone if you carried out other mods like induction or full exhaust which would then need either a stage 2 map or custom remap which is where 250£ comes from.

    My new car can’t use a cobb otherwise I would be keeping it.

    Regards

    If it’s an off the shelf map like dreamscience offer then I’d imagine it’ll be fine. However I don’t see Litchfield offering OTS maps so I’d imagine it’ll need to be mapped again to your car. They’ll just have you do some data log runs and you’ll receive revised maps. I’m sure it works out to £750 if you buy direct from Litchfield with the stage 1 package. You’ll be saving yourself £100 if you purchase this handset off eBay then paying out the £250 for the stage 1 map. If it were me I’d pay the extra £100 for peace of mind. I still think it should be a bit cheaper I’d happily pay £300 for a 2nd hand one but no more than that.

    Best call Litchfield themself and finding out exactly what they offer and go from there.

    @brembo i think he possibly will be able to upload the map but Litchfield have every owner perform data logs to the car. If it’s a generic map then they wouldn’t do this. It could be fine but could also end in tears with a hefty engine build. He might get away with doing a set of data logs and ask Litchfield to confirm if it’s ok but I’d imagine they’ll tell him he’ll need to pay the 250 and start a fresh.

    Just read this.

    If it is a generic map then it’ll be fine. But again contact Litchfield to be safe.

    When I got my COBB Accessport from Litchfield with Stage 2 map they didn’t ask me to do any Data Logging although you can Data Log and that is free for the first 12 months. So I’m under the impression that their maps are sent out to customers all the same, obviously Stage 1 and Stage 2 are different, but until the customer uploads the software and does some data logging then sends the file off and reinstalls the altered software, that’s when the map will be altered for a certain vehicle. But I’m not 100% sure if the standard map stays on the COBB and the updates run separate or if the standard map is altered??

    @mky-77

    A quick call to Litchfield just to be 100% sure. Also, ask the guy who’s selling it if he did any data logging??

    Cheers, Marc.
