    Can't fault the tuning box I've got. They do a good forum member discount as well.

    Hi, maybe a silly question but what is the down side to fitting the remap? Their website says it will deliver more power and be more economical and be within the cars safety parameters . If that's the case why doesnt audi fit one at the factory or have it as an option? must be catch surely - invalidates any Audi warranty and increased insurance I guess are obvious things I assume?

    Manufacturers won't give the maximum output just because they can, as this would be bad for business. They know people will pay a hefty premium for the next engine up, just look at the cost difference between the 150ps and the 184ps. There are 'Audi approved' options but they are very costly.

    The box is completely untraceable once removed, which can be very easily done in less than 10 mins.

    Depends on your insurer by I'm with esure and it's cost an extra £4 per month for up to 30% performance gain.

    I deliberated about the DTUK tuning box for months, but finally took the plunge and am extremely happy with the results. Andrew at DTUK is excellent and can answer any questions you may have.

    Thanks, worth considering then, as insurance not a big deal extra

    I was surprised how little the additional cost was tbh, was fully expecting a 50%+ increase in my premium. There are a lot of insurers that will refuse to insure 'modified' cars and others that will screw you over. Definately worth trying esure in my experience.

    No the link I put in post#2 is for the 1.4 COD. They do specialise in Diesel engines as there name suggests, but they do have boxes for petrol engines as well. Apparently there's one for the new S3 as well.

    I might not be looking correctly, but I can't see any stats on their website on how much more bhp or torque you get on the 1.4 CoD.

    If you put your model in the search function it should state the performance gains, seem to remember it takes it up to 170-180ps. It doesn't detail economy gains because it's a little more difficult to calculate, but expect around 5-10% typically. Forum member ABYSS (Andrew) is the owner of DTUK, so it would be worth contacting him for more details.

    Didn't realise they did these for the COD, very tempted

    Figures from site are:
    A3 1.4 TSI 140PS COD Before - 103 (140 PS) 250 Nm . After - 126 (171 PS) 298 Nm

    When you say "completely untraceable" does it not register a code that Audi would pick up during a service?

    If not, i may have to start being nice to my wife

    Nope it doesn't leave a trace as far as I understand. The gains in torque look good for a 1.4 petrol engine but that is what's good about remapping these new engines. I think I might go for it after I've put some more miles under the car's belt...
