    Errr, quicker?

    Do a search mate, its been covered loads.

    If your considering it, be prepared for your turbo to go pop aswell, £800+ for a new one.

    Will the turbo go pop if maintained properly and not constantly ragged?

    Had mine done with AwesomeGTI too - love the turbo now comes in earlier and is smoother right through. Clutch started to slip straight away though so must have been on it's way out anyway - replaced it - now enjoy the car so much more!

    Had mine done buy Falcon Engineering in Middlesbrough, a eco remap, supposed to be 170 bhp. Much better, engine seems smoother and mpg is much better.

    Depending in the age of your car, why not look at Diesel Tuning UK in the sponsors section we've done lots of these and they respond well. Also you have the advantage of taking it to your next vehicle with free software upgrade

    :yes: http://www.mybluefin.co.uk/search?make=2&fueltype=2&model=21&variant=36

    Don't know how good it is on a TDI though, can only vouch for the 2.0TFSI.

    The price has also gone back up. Was only £365 a couple of weeks ago, now back up to £455.
    I wonder if they'd offer it at the discounted price if asked nicely?
