    Hi Everyone,

    I'm looking to buy a 170 Avant in a couple of months time, aiming for a 2010/11 if possible. I have had an A4 3.0 tdi quattro before that was remapped, and would like to know of anyone's experiences of remapping the 2 litre 170bhp. I intend to do away with the EGR and DFP at the same time, and would like to know if anyone has had this done, and any thoughts they may have, is the car more driveable, improved pick up, economy? As I would like a multitronic gearbox, are there any issues with the increased power and torque? I do on average around 500 miles a week, so economy is quite important to me, which is why I'm not going for a 2.7 or 3.0 much as I'd love one with the quattro four wheel drive...
    Any comments or thoughts would be much appreciated, thank you for taking the time to read this, and thanks in anticipation...

    Hi again,

    Maybe I'm in the wrong section here to get any response to my questions? Do I need to be in the diesel or tuning sections as I'm sure that somebody out there must have a 2.0 170s that's been played with? Thanks!

    Try in the B8 section, they share the same engines.
