    Question SUPERCHIPS/ BLUEFIN????

    Hello
    I been thinking about getting my 2.0 tdi 140 remapped for while now.
    I was going to go with the bluefin you plug in do your self. Any one done this and could tel they think of it? or is there a better way?
    I dont drive with heavey right foot just like to have the extra power there.
    maybe to go up the hill little faster lol

    Thanks
    Dan

    Do it do it do it!!! lol

    I have just uploaded my original map to the Bluefin server. Can't wait for that text tomorrow.

    My mate had a 1.9TDI PD 130 Seat Leon and he chipped it up to 170 odd and he loved every minute of it!

    Edit: Maybe you want a bit more info on it.

    There is no better way of getting a remap if you want to be able to take it off. Others on here have Revo and I'll let them say their views as I have never tried it. Bluefin is really easy to use (although the plug can be a bugger to connect) and you can of course take the map completely off if you wish. The dealer will never know you've had it done, unless they're looking specifically, which they won't be realistically. Superchips will cover your warranty if Audi refuse to pay out. Also you can transfer your handset onto another car if you change it for only 5.88 if it's within a year.

    Many have complained that the map for an S3 isn't good enough for them but with the trusty old 140 TDI you shouldn't have that problem.

    For advice on Air Con problems please read my FAQs.

    No regrets here Dan - had it on the car for 7000 miles now and no trouble at all. Torque improvement is fantastic - it just pulls like a train.

    Good man! I'm up to 19k now and still loving it. Take a look at the VCDS link in my sig for a rough guide to what she's now doing power wise. I dont leave a nice black smoke trail either .

    I took the plunge so will see how it turns out and I will let you know!

    Well worth it!

    0-60 around 7.5 secs

    Whilst you are moving I doubt standard Type Rs, STs, etc could overtake.

    The gears are much more active and you can feel the power difference.

    Off the mark (ie traffic lights) it will make a difference but don't expect anything great.

    Driving at 20+mph then footing it is a different thing though, leaves a look of surprise on many drivers. I believe it benefits the DSG more than a manual.

    This is not a substitute for a performance car or anything like that, you just get more poke to give you a bit more fun in a 2.0 diesel.
