    Remapping

    Hi everyone,
    (this is my 1st post, so please excuse any mistakes),
    I was wondering if anyone has any info on whether the remapping software & flasher units found on Ebay work.
    I have a 1.9tdi A4 SE on a 55 plate.
    Thanks for all help

    The flash tools themselves are almost always badly built clones of proper tools with rubbish cracked software. Even if you do experiment with the flash tools please, please DON'T try flashing any of the "maps" to your ECU. One hilarious case I saw recently was a guy who flashed an MP3 to his ECU without knowing.

    99 times out of 100 this sort of thing ends in tears, and a pro will end up charging you more to fix it than if you just went to get a proper remap in the firstplace.

    Thanks for the info / warning.
    Just out of interest, how much does remapping cost roughly ?
