    That's bloody good value for money if it does what it says on the tin, as it's not far off the power from a remap which is Ł200 more. Remap would be 150bhp 240lb/ft. I remap would be better power delivery etc but for Ł60, why not.

    I've been running one on my Passat TDI for approx 80k miles with no problems. A remap is still a better bet, but you need to pay for it. The tuning box I have is switchable from inside the dash, so I can run it with standard or chipped power, I switch it off when there's ice or snow on the roads.

    doesnt it just fiddle with maf readings?

    I would say go for a proper chip as they will diagnose any problems before they do it. I had my old golf gttdi 110 done and it made the power delivery alot better. Think mine made a dubious 140, a true 150 is doubtfull in my opinion

    Haha, I didn't buy mine from ebay, I was suggesting I have one, and it DOES work. Can't see the ebay one being any different in operation though.

    well ur one was probably researched properly etc. the ebay one is probably one of those Ł10 "UBER POWER RESISTORS!"... in a box
