    Remap question has anbody done it ?

    Hi All

    I have been given a good price on a remap, I have a 1.6 2003 A3

    Wanted to know if anyone has had there 1.6 remapped and if so is it worth me getting it done,

    Thanks

    Assuming its a 1.6 fsi non turbo, spend your money on something else nice, IMHO its not worth it.

    General consensus is that, you get very little gains which are definitely not worth it for the dosh. Seem to remember reading a thread from a few years ago stating that someone had had a remap on a 2.0FSI and they couldn't see any difference whatsoever, only it being slightly smoother. I looked into this myself because I was wondering about getting my 2.0FSI remapped.

    If it was a TFSI, that would be different.
