    What to do 1st?

    Alright all. I took delivery of my 2001 A4 1.8 turbo sport 4 weeks ago after owning a VR6 for 5 years. Now after 4 weeks driving (and giving the A4 a chance) ive noticed it doesnt have the same response when i want to put my foot down. Getting down to business, what mod can i do 1st that will improve the situation bearing in mind ive only approx. 500quid to spend

    can anyone out there recommend what they've done to their cars. I'd appreciate ne advise

    cheers

    I ran a 2001 1.8T and if I were you I would take it to Amd tomorrow, I waited 6 months and afterwards all I could think was I missed out for that whole time.

    I got my remap done by chipped-uk.He's a sponsor on uk-mkiv
    http://uk-mkivs.net/forums/151/ShowForum.aspx
    Give him a ring to see if he has anyone near you.
    As for the rest just shop around to see who can supply you with the bits.There is always bits on ebay too.

    Thanks for that. Ive just looked on Awesome GTi's website and they're offering an APR stage 1 re-map for 375.00. Which will take the BHP to approx. 200 does this sound about right? Ive also looked on the DPM website (thanks for the links!) who offer most things for the engine.

    If you are in Kent BigBoysToys are not far away in Thurrock Lakeside. They offer Revo re-mapping.

    I think I've still got the rolling road print out somewhere, I'll try and look it out for you, pretty sure it was quite a bit over 200bhp though.

    Didn't take much notice of the mpg to be honest. But who cares anyway. I'll drive an electric car when I'm 60.
