  1. hi,
    i know this might be in the wrong forum but the 'tuning' or 'diesel' forums don't seem to get much response /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
    i've been looking at tuning boxes for the a3 tdi (110bhp). so far i see a number of choices, some cheap around £100 and some quite expensive (£300-£500 may as well get the car chipped!)

    does anyone have experience of any of the following?
    mr hoot (dragon performance)
    hhtuning
    and 'car power' or 'red i tuning' as advertised on ebay (no separate web sites as far as i can tell)

    i am particularly intersted in the hhtuning box due to its price.... any pro's and cons?

    thanks in advance /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    ;p

    I got my box from Dragon Performance off ebay when they were called something else! Cost £100, and works a treat. Done over 30k with it on, passes the MOT every year, no increase in fuel consumption, and goes like a train.

    However.... if you're going to spend over £250 on a box, i'd save a bit more and go down the proper route with a re-map.

    Couldn't say for sure because I've never had mine on a rolling road, however, they claim 25% increase, and my car now blows my brother's A4 130tdi into the weeds, where as before, he was well ahead
     
  5. most of them are quoting at least 25% increase -so 110 would go up to 137ish

    ;p
