    A3 remap?

    Ive git an 07 plates a3, its only a 1.6 but im looking to get it remapped. I know alot of companies dont remap this engine. Ive had a quote off fr&r tuning for Ł200. I know i wont get huge power gains but its the driveability i want. He quoted between 5-8 horsepower gains. Just wandered if anyone had used them before? Cheers for any help. Jono

    Seriously mate, and without meaning to sound harsh, I wouldn't bother. I'd be surprised if you notice any difference at all.
    Put the money towards something that'll make the car look nicer... i.e. lowering, wheels, tints, etc etc.

    The remap gains on a non-turbo car DO NOT justifiy the cost. Much better off using the money to have your inlet manifold ported or something...
