    Remap

    Hi guys,
    got a a3 1.8t agu.. Totaly standard... It has 150k on the clock n would like to
    remap it or tuned so its running spot on as its poor economy n hesitates slightly.. All serviced though!!
    is it worth a remap for better mpg.. Not looking for power... Just a tune up for reliability n check up etc..
    im in west london.. Whats the best place to take it too near me?

    thanks
    Aaron

    I would suggest checking for error codes and getting a smoke test first before a remap. Just a thought.

    Define 'near' ?

    If near means you don't mind travelling a bit of distance to get your car looked at by an expert in 1.8ts then go and see Bill @ Badger 5 in Gloucester.

    Oops fault codes cleared now... One was battery power or power low.. Others was diverter valve leak but those wer because of old problems that needed clearing.
    badger 5 is 2 hours away lol anyone else closer to london?

    I wouldnt bank on getting a remap straight away. any decent tuner wont map it unless the car is safe for it. R tech is closer I think but depends which way your going.

    If Badger 5 and R-tech dont feel the car is safe then they wont map it. may be worth getting it checked over before taking it to them?
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    I'm from CT18 area in Kent, so almost double the distance....it was well worth the travel/fuel after being spun loads of crap from local 'specialist' VAG garages that were unable to spot the split pipes. So now I personally trust 2 garages completely with my car the UK! lol

    If you want the best for your 1.8t then you're going to need to do a little travelling mate

    It is if the tuner is willing to do work if he finds problems before the remap (all chargeable of course) like Bill, .. its got to be Fairly ready to go for R -tech....or you will be sent home....

    You can get a remap from Most garages.. But that's like getting heart surgery from a builder..

    There are many names and companies who would offer a remap next to you, but as it have been told earlier its not all the same.
    You can look for (revo, amd, apr, giac, awesome gti, custom code, unitronic...) and the list goes on

    think of it this way, if you get your remapped by at Badger5, who you say is a 2 hour drive away. Imagine how much fun you will have driving back home

    Dont get a map.. Get is thoroughly checked over first if you have this slight miss.. Remap will not fix things.
    Choose a competant VAG specialist who has things like smoke test, dyno, and experience of these engines... They should be able to identify the issue for you.

    Once its all fine, then remap could be applied.

    Well said mate. You could have waded in offering a remap and collect some monies without a care in the world, but as you mentioned the condition/health of the engine is the main issue here and your reputation.

    This is why people on ASN refer others to you. Kudos +1

    these are old cars now... many have their little gremlins which need attention first

    TLC.. and some fixes usually run hand in hand with the old 1.8t's... Then they can produce some nice gains when all healthy again
