I have heard that Fredrik from Maptun is coming to Scotland in October and will be available for some custom tuning.
Dates are the 29th October
Details are sketchy at the moment but Ranald at Roseisle is bringing him over to work on a couple of cars (mine included)and he intends to have the saturday available for other cars on a first come basis
Anyone interested ?

I was going to say bit of a long drive but seeing as though I'm probably off to the Green Hell again in Sept.... How long does it take to get up there from London George?

That depends on how much
Zars - multimap should give you a rough guide on a good day with following wind (422.5 miles and 21hours 48 mins).

well after witnessing a pretty nasty accident (which we were nearly a part of) on the M1 few weeks back on the way to pick up our soon to be broken 9k Carly both me and my friend who was driving (his 996 turbo) have decided no more
on our roads unless they are completely clear. This guy just moved out into the outer lane for no reason whatsoever
and failed to see a very fast approaching NSX. Well the inevitable happened and we were lucky enough to miss the bouncing back lead car when passing (on the hard shoulder)
Completely freaked us out.

You just don't know what the other driver is thinking

Anyway, sorry to hijack the thread with that little tale. No more fast driving for me

I am very interested. whats the address in scotland so I can look on multi map. Could be a bit far for me !!

I will give Frederick a bell to see if he can tune my stage 3 to account for recent hardware (abbott intercooler and intake).

But yes I am very interested.

ooohhhh! a bit of custom tuning!

Sounds like a good idea to me, as i would like to get the software setup with the RS whilst on the car.
Count me in.

As Roseisle are an offical Maptun distributor, I was thinking of using them to do my stage 1. I'm up in Aberdeen so they are not that far away.

Can anyone recommend their work?

Used them to fit and test Maptun Stage 3 on the aero. Ranald is really helpful and happy to talk uprated 9000's. His own 9000 is turning into an awesome piece of kit. Facilities are good and they seem to know what they are doing. I'm really happy with their work Give Ranald a call - I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I've used Roseisle for all the mods to my 9-3 Aero, and they have been superb. As Aerogav said, Ranald the owner is very knowlegable, and happy to discuss the best way forward for your particular car.

Was speaking to Ranald on Friday. They are having custom tune done on 2 cars, which will take the best part of 2 days, only leaving 1 day for other work. If you want work done, you'd better speak to Ranald directly - it's not just a case of turning up on the day, and having your car tuned in 5 minutes!

Just to clarify
Just spoken to Ranald

There will be one day set aside for custom tuning.. this will be saturday AFIK

given this will take a couple of hours per car this will mean a limit of practically 4-5 cars
There is some leeway and depends on what people want
cost ? talk to Ranald
Stage one's are not a problem but a stage 7 would be ...

He is also planning a bit of an event if people are travelling and are up for it
but it is definitely not a turn up and hope something gets done

I may have more info later
