    cheap chip/remaP

    anyone know of a cheap(Ł100) chip kit that can be self fitted for a 1.8t. I'm looking at trying one out to see what they're like rather than spending Ł500 on a remap for an Ł11k 70k B6 avant.

    are they any good?
    do they damage the engine or components at all?
    where can i buy them(my mate thought he saw them on ebay but i cannot see!)

    advice please peeps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    find a APR supplier near you as they do free 6 hour trials..

    depending on which remap you go for it can depend on if it damages your engine etc..

    u'll break your car dude if you mess with 'ebay mods'

    if it is an ECU chip you would need to be an extremely competent solderer to get it right, if you burn the ECU its 500+ quid to get a new one.

    don't mod your car if your about to sell it i think it loses value with these engine extras.

    Just my two penneth ........... But surely you're not serious a "chip" for Ł100 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img]
    I would've thought a 70k 1.8t would need all the TLC you can give so a good custom Re-Map has to be the answer. Then the tuner can make sure everthing's A ok and not about to go BANG on the test drive. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] What do you expect for Ł100? I mean an hours labour in London is that and I'm sure Ł40-Ł50+ elsewhere.
