Wowzers! I'm struggling to get into the high 30s on my commute...although I have only recently got the car so I'm still enjoying the right hand pedal, plus I commute into London in stop-start traffic...

Getting to the high 30s in a busy London commute is excellent. Mine is a steady run (I generally go in around 5.30 am) but it's only 5.3 miles and get around 35-38 at this time of year but that drops by about 7 in the cold.

My commute is down the M4, so it's a mix of 70mph sections and then stop/start crawling when I hit sticky patches and as I get closer to London. A/C has been on constantly due to the heat wave so perhaps when the weather's chilled out a bit I'll see a slight increase.

Some amazing results, way better than my CS average of 31 after 3k miles, maybe it would increase if my other half was in the car with me more often??.. :laugh:

It should improve with a few more miles on the clock...  :wink:

Cheers, I think it has been creeping up from around 27, further improvements will be a bonus  :smiley:

Highly recommend it, I had mine done at 3 weeks old and don't regret it one bit. Currently on 10k miles and can't fault it... As you can see it can be economical but also when needed it can go to...

Good to hear. I’m seriously considering it but was a bit concerned about traction but I guess it’s just a matter of learning to drive the car again. My MPG is still around the 30 mark, 9,000 miles on the click now. I was able to get 39/40 in my S3 so the Clubsport mapping must be something to do with it?

I had a lack of traction in the first three gears with the P-Zero's on but now I've got PS4S's on it's much less of an issue. Once they're warmed up you really can lay it down well. Maybe the remap improves economy slightly but if you could get 39/40 in an S3 then you should get at least that or more in a CS due to less weight to pull around.
