    1.8TFSi sportback newbie

    picked it up 3 weeks ago. coming from a 1.9jtd grande punto it is a massive step up in quality, so smooth and solid.

    Whayy another 1.8 tfsi, recently picked mine up last month aswell. Punto looks cool, did you have it mapped at all?

    Anyway very nice A3, I think the 1.8's are the pick of the bunch personally.

    Any plans for it?

    Oh cool I did similar to my corsa l.e. but a dpf delete with a tuning box instead of a remap.

    Whats the panel filter like? I'm after one aswell you see. So far I've bought wheels and spoiler for mine.

    I've got an sline one and rs6 18's wish I bought 19's now though.

    Let me how the panel filter is.

    I know a lad who got 240bhp from stage 1 map on his 1.8 tfsi with just a miltek cat back.

    i emailed r-tech and apparently the ecu is try core anti-tamper so its gonna be expensive.

    Arr I was going to look at r-tech as they have good reviews and aint to far away from me, but I definitely want a custom map.

    I've been looking at springs and coilovers but I dont really want to spend more than £250, so it will most likely be springs.

    But I recommend lowering it first as mine sits very high imo.

    Woo another 1.8TFSI!

    Speak to Unicorn on here, they should be able to remap it, I'm still deciding whether to do mine but will have to wait as it's going into Audi next week
