    remap every time tuning boxes arent great
    140 pd engine is ok but if its pree 58 plate the oil pump drive is weak

    JimC64 has a 2007 2.0 TDi BRE with a remap ...

    AFAIK he had it done very soon after buying car in 2007 ...

    If he not see this thread perhaps PM him ...

    Thanks Gup, Yeah, had my 140 remapped to 176

    To be honest, I found it almost downright dangerous in 1st gear and somewhat lacking pre remap.........Afterwards, ALL good.

    I paid through the nose and got Audi to do it as the car was brand new and wanted to retain the warranty obviously, but there are other options I'm sure

    Personal opinion is remap all the way, but each to their own.

    Good luck
