    Question Chip Express

    Has anyone had any dealings with these boxes? im interested in one for my 2.5 TDI A4 w-reg but wanted some feedback from someone who has one before buying one.
    id rather buy a box type as im interested in a possible p/x for an avant (only a maybe) & i would like to remove it & re fit it.

    i posted here as its for an A4 & the chip/tuning page seemed a little lifeless! oh & i did search for chipexpress before posting.

    Anyone got one????

    cheers!!

    I would recommend a proper remap over a plug in box.

    A remap actually updates the ECU's programming, whereas the box just fiddles with the signals and fudges them to make more power.

    You could always transfer the ECU into your new car?

    As above I would say that box is designed to fiddle the standard singnals on the stock ECU. I personally would far preger to see a proper chip or remap
