    Alright Shag. The main tuners are Revo, APR, Custom Code but not cheap. Depends how much you want to spend? If you live close to me I don't mind scaring the sh1t out of you in my Custom Coded S3??!!

    Thats who I got my Revo with on the Golf. They all offer similar BHP & torque figures - After having the Derv done it needed a new clutch. They will all be similar figures - I got told that Revo is more acceleration than top end stuff

    bluefin is superchips, Revo in effect is similar to Superchips, Revo is the software.

    Chipped UK - not sure about mate, heard good reports and they are cheap as chips, 225bhp is a bit optimistic due to the turbo. You should see 200bhp out of it

    Bromsgrove is just south of birmingham off the M5, theyll get you the widest torque band they can for the car, excellent map imo and a bargain compared to the likes of revo, custom code etc

    another chipped uk fan here!!

    definately recommend them if you are not bothered about travelling too far. I was mainly attracted to them because of the price. But the all round package they offered including before and after RR run,. Just really pulled me towards them. Got slightly less power figures compared to 'quattro lew' but still highly impressed.

    But if you got local dealers offering the same package for only 100 more, i would seriously consider going there. It will better for you just in case you have any after mapping problems/queries you have. Also the money you save on petrol compared to travelling down to bromsgrove.

    But then again the trip back home is sooo much fun!!

    mine showed it was running 160bhp before the run
    and now its running 212bhp
    torque is now 225lb/ft compared to 162lb/ft before the run

    but jason (at chipped Uk) did say the quattro dont provide 100% accurate dyno readings because of th haldex 4wd set up
