    Depends on the engine/ecu bradders, my 2000 APU is a flash over K-line, done it many times, as has R-Tech.

    R-tech or midlands VW are the ones round here, but doubt their prices will match your expectations unfortunately...

    £100 for a remap, bloody hell. I assume it wasn't reputable suppliers but other "members" that did it that cheap.

    At around £250 many people can offer safe maps, good luck.

    had a 306 hdi,75 for file did it myself

    406 hdi 180 remap was free diy

    can't see why it is any different. i can pay 200 pounds thou will have a look. but the car cost 600 pounds so can't justify half again for a minor increase.

    Had it been a Derv, i could have offered a safe map.... as I can get them from a reputable place and flash them myself. That would be under £100... 1.8t, wouldn't trust it...

    Should be flashable as opposed to a chip out job

    opens up more choice

    Do yourself a favour and stick the file up on nefmoto for people to look over.

    They'll soon tell you if its a decent job or a POS.

    There are many cowboys out there and you dont want to damage your motor!

    Easiest way to tell would be to look on the V5 for the engine number.

    Make the journey over to Jabba sport in Peterborough, they did my old cable throttle 1.8t to 210bhp with pipercross panel filter and jetex back box. Your's will be fly-by-wire, so expect a little more. Big boys go to MRC, but I don't believe he does 1.8t's could be wrong....
    2000 B5 S4 - MRC Remap - RS2 Sparks - Pipercross Element (dried) + Modified Airbox - Forge Divs - Samco Hose's - KW's dropped 50mm - 18" RONAL R41 in gun metal grey - Black Diamond Combi Disc's + Predator Pads - Brushed Alloy Mirrors - Short Shifter - Full Recaro - Carbon Trim - Bose. More to come, watch this space.......

    avoid MRC for 1.8t's they always seem to mess them up despite what they say.

    Bill, Niki or Rick are your best bets imho

    Had my 1.8 TQS customed at MRC a few years ago now and have had no problems with the car at all.
