    Just purchased a Plug-in-Chip off e-bay, one from Germany the seller is a tuning company with top feedback so finger x'd it'll be OK. Has anyone else bought something like this and can they tell the difference when fitted good or bad?

    i had one on my 130Q and couldnt tell the diff, apart from the black fuel cloud...all they do is fool the computer into adding more fuel. then i got the re-map and ive never looked back, its a differant car

    If this doesn't work I'll be looking at taking it to someone and getting it chipped and done properly. But I thought I'd try one off these first. A case off see how it goes fingers x'd

    Had a PSI chip in my A4 TDI Quattro (97), what a difference in performance!
    Did try another make, but that just burned tons of fuel.
    Selling the chip on ebay today 18/2/07

    Well fitted the plug in chip and so far not 100% if it's made that much difference. I'm sure it pulls a bit better but I've not had a chance to give it a propper run out on my own. So far it's been with Wife and kiddie's. Hoping for good 3rd4th gear over taking punch, so I'll keep you posted....

    I fitted a £50 plug-in module from German Ebay to my 110bhp TDI and found it made quite a difference, with wheel spin in 1st and 2nd embarrassingly easy if being lead-footed.
    Mpg has gone down from about 48-49 to approx 45-46 since fitted but it makes car much more pleasant to drive IMHO.

    Hello All
    My new (to me anyway) A6 1.9 tdi came with a Van Aaken Developments box on it.......I am most impressed and still get 47mpg according to the on board 'puter. I get a slight cam rattle on cold start that goes in 2 seconds....should I worry....First diesel I have owned for years.

    I'm not a 100% I can tell much off a difference but I've also still not had a good run out without the physiological speed limiter in the passenger seat with me. But still loving the A4.:icon_thumright:
