    Sky insurance a sponsor on here don't charge any extra but others do all depends on what broker your with so it's a difficult one to answer.

    I checked this out earlier in the year albeit for a 2.0TFSI and the cost was more than I was willing to pay. Out of interest I used moneysupermarket to generate some quotes for no mods and with remap (+20% bhp). This is what I found:

    Best no mod quote - Privilege £230.02
    Best remap quote - Admiral £559.50
    For comparison: no mod quote - Admiral £455.62

    So looks like another £104 from Admiral for the remap but it's miles off the cheapest quote or £329.48 to be exact.

    Conclusion: I still won't be remapping.

    HI
    I have been thinking remap, and now starting to look a little more into it. Just check the insurance and with comparethemarket choosing admiral went form 602 to 608 ...

    That is for a A4 B8 10 plate S-Line 2.00 TDI 170BHP.

    May be worth it

    Thanks
    T
